5 December is International Volunteer Day. It is the day we celebrate the work of all volunteers in our community. There is also the benifits of volunteering, such as connectivity with community and the feeling of self worth. There is the satisfaction of a job well done that cannot be achieved in paid employment. Those who have never given freely of themselves through volunteering in some role can ever understand that. In fact some people get so much out of volunteering, they keep on committing themselves over and over again.
