I have had my share of volunteer work and let me tell you it is sometimes just as rewarding as a paid job.

Volunteer work is what you make it

I have had jobs that pay in several fields but to be a volunteer takes a special person. The first time I did volunteer work was at our local childerens hospital it was both a great job and a sad one. Most days were spent visiting and chatting with the parents and kids some would want to play some game yet others were just happy someome was there. Be in a wheelchair I can understand how most of them feel. Every day I visit with new kids you see some childeren were so sick they might not make it to the next day one never knows so in order not to get to close I would only visit someone more often if they ask otherwise I would go on to the next child. One day which turned out to be my last day there it was a summer job anyway, I went to visit this little girl she had something wrong that to this day I can not remember but anyway I went in and told her and her mother who I was she was glad I came I could tell by her smile you that was about all there was left as we talked I noticed some pretty red roses by her bed and just being friendly how alive and pretty they were and her mother spoke up and said yes they are the florist had spraid them with something so they would live a long time, unnecessarily the mother finished the story by saying that the flowers would out live her daughter. I left the room in shock I could believe she said that in front of her little girl, well a week later I saw friend who was a volunteer at the sometime and she told me the little girl passed away just hours after I said bye to her and left her room.
