Many would call a day of volunteering at Star of Hope their "giving back" duty. My experience would best be described as giving "hope."
My organization, Girls Above Society, aims to bring awareness to the pressures that young girls face in today's society. Even if we gave just one person a glimmer of hope that they can turn their life around and stand on their own feet, then we achieved our goal of inspiring others during the holiday season. I was amazed to see how grateful some of the recipients were, especially the children. It made me feel good about myself knowing that I helped to brighten so many other's holiday.
I definitely plan on volunteering again and I would encourage others to do the same. It was a very heart warming experience and I look forward to visiting soon!
