Life has it's ups and downs. Sad occasions - like a refugee crises, or extreme cold - made me realize how lucky I am, and therefore I need to do something to be on the helping side. Those people in need any sort of assistance - food, water, heat, home, medical care, etc - very likely once were in a better position. Just now, at this point in their life they are fallen off the track. When it comes to children - especially in state care or in crisis - they all deserve a better future. For me it means they have an inspiring and safe place to grow and adults that comforts them. The follow projects give you some ideas on how I started my volunteering. No matter what scale you go for, how small or how large, what matters is you get involved.
