As we (Care & Mercy Foundation) prepare for our big events of the year – our Golf & Gala –
I think about the large number of people it takes to pull these events together. As an all-volunteer organization, we look for help in many ways. Help comes in the form of financial donations, time and effort, or perhaps just a positive introduction into your network of friends and potential corporate sponsors.
Serving others in a volunteer effort can be among the most rewarding and blessed times of your life. Volunteering is an important and essential contribution to any charity organization. Volunteering makes a tremendous impact on the charity community. But it is also possible to overextend yourself and experience burnout.
I want to share a few points with you about volunteering and maybe when not to volunteer:
In all situations of volunteering, you must want to undertake the work/effort, and it will mean more to you and others if it is done with a heart of service and joy. John 15:13 Greater Love has no one than this, that someone lay done his life for his friends. Consider volunteering and how it can wonderfully impact your local community.
