BE A DO-GOODER FOR A DAY
need your help again, Xanga people. Pretend you are thinking
about volunteering your time at a residence for people with AIDS.
The clients have other issues too: mental illness, drug addiction,
dementia. You are not yet convinced you want to volunteer
there. After all, there’s an animal shelter with cute puppies
nearby, and the local school is looking for tutors. Lots of
worthwhile organizations could benefit from your time.
What do you
need to know to help you make your decision? What might make you
say “no way I’m setting foot in that place.” What benefit would you hope to get from volunteering?
I’m writing another brochure. This one will tell nice people like
you about volunteer opportunities at our fine establishment. How
can I make volunteering here a no-brainer?
You helped me tremendously on my last project, friends. Please give me the gift of your insight again.
