The experience of helping others provides us with meaning, a sense of self worth and a meaningful social role.
A strong correlation exists between the well-being, happiness, health and longevity of people who are kind and compassionate as they carry out their charitable activities.
Volunteers are everywhere; they greet us with a smile wherever we go in our daily life.
Volunteers support our health and welfare agencies, they welcome visitors to town.
Volunteers are good sports, supporting our recreational fund-raising activities and lending a hand to support our community events.
Australian volunteers contribute 700 million hours of unpaid work each year
to their local communities which equates to a $43 billion boost to the Australian economy, a much larger contribution to GDP than tourism, mining or agriculture.
