Good to hear Governor General Anand Satyanand’s broadcast on New Year’s Day commending volunteering as a way of living well. He inferred that volunteering improved the quality of society as well as the lives of those doing the voluntary action.
This week I was talking to a newcomer from India, Sukanya Kanarally, an IT professional and currently volunteering as a profile writer with Volunteer Wellington.  Sukanya is looking for paid employment and is enjoying volunteering in the meantime.   She agrees with the GG… ‘The voluntary sector has so many answers.’
A good note on which to start the year.  But the action begins in earnest next week.

    How true …… volunteering is helping others, and also doing yourself some good, all naturally, without effort.
    It sure beats any so-called self-help book 😉 .
