The Good Feed Blog Editors got fired up by today’s story about LA Dodgers Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw volunteering at a Habitat for Humanity homebuilding project.
But it made us realize that it’s sad we get so fired up over people volunteering. So what that they’re stars? They don’t need to give back? More to the point, they don’t want to give back?
We think most people want to give back, to help out, to volunteer. So why is every charity desperate for help?
Most of us will claim “time” as the reason. And that’s valid for a lot of people.
But, c’mon. We each can’t give two-hours a month to read at an after-school tutoring session, or pitch in to clean up a park, or throw a coat of paint on a school?
So, aside from time, what’s keeping you from lending a helping hand once in a while?
