Volunteering can lead us to some of the most meaningful and profound experiences in life. As Winston Churchill said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” We can say that ‘living’ is what each of us are wired to do, but to find meaning in the cause and how we do it is a choice we make for ourselves along the way.
Look, the “Season of Giving” is upon us but if you think about it, giving back never really goes out of style. We just have a knack for finding ways to make it even more special and perhaps personal, on certain occasions. It is us who come and go. We all have our seasons. That’s why what we are yearning for is for you to find it in your heart to spend some of your own giving season with us and our partners.
This 2020, we invite you to plant the seeds of hope through iVolunTree for Christmas: Gift Love Through the iVolunTree. Our goal is to deliver the most meaningful gifts to the greatest number of people, and we are inviting YOU to be part of this cause!
