Volunteer!

To volunteer or not to volunteer. That is the question.

Many of us say that they would volunteer if they were given the choice. Others say that they wish to help but don’t have the time or means to do so. However,what we give you today enables you to find solutions to each and every one of your prior problems. So, here is what we give you: information. VOLUNTEERING can be done when you want, it’s not compulsory and you can organize your time as you wish. You don’t need to pay for anything, you don’t have to have a tight schedule. You can volunteer whenever you want, in the area of expertise that you are good at.

I won’t lie to you, volunteering isn’t as simple as it seems. It sometimes is tiresome, demanding and strict. But on the other hand, there is no bigger reward than to see a smile on the faces of people that you’ve helped. The fatigue after an event where you could help people is beneficial and it makes you feel that you’ve done something with that time.

But what is the point of this plea, you might ask. Maybe I should have written this in another problem post and then show the solution. However, the issue I want to discuss today is part of a bigger picture. This post today is a leap of faith towards you, our readers, to step up and become of a part of the bigger picture yourself.

The point I was trying to prove is that many disabled people lack a helping hand. Many have to manage on their own in a variety of situations while others like Antoaneta ( whose story you can see HERE) have to seek help from people that are either older or that have other kind of problems (e.g. Antoaneta’s father).

By getting into touch with different non-governmental organisations each of us can get involved into different projects regarding disabled people.

Here are some suggestions as to which organisations you could contact:

If you are from Romania, don’t hesitate to contact the Salvati Copiii organisation and Special Olympics Romania.

If you are from any other part of the world visit Special Olympics or Eunice Kennedy’s website as well as R-Word and Special Olympics Blog.

We are waiting for your involvement!
