We asked Theresa why she decided to volunteer for 365give and she shared her answers. Thank you Theresa for being a great part of our team at 365give!
How did you become interested in 365give?
I was looking for a volunteer writer position through which I could make the world a better place – especially by inspiring people to become happier and more loving. I wanted to volunteer for organizations with missions that I could believe in and support. During my research for such organizations, I found 365give and its Inspirational Volunteer Writer position.
Why did you want to volunteer at 365give?
I am a believer and practitioner of doing little acts of love consistently to make a positive impact in the world. When I found the Inspirational Volunteer Writer position at 365give, I did some research on 365give; I learned about its mission of improving lives and the world by promoting the habit of daily giving. This mission resonated with me and how I live my life, so I decided to volunteer for 365give.
What have you been your greatest rewards while volunteering at 365give?
It is very rewarding when I see my written works on 365give’s blog; knowing that they reach people all over the world and (hopefully) inspire them to be more generous is great. It’s been also very rewarding to learn more about writing and becoming a better writer; I can use my improved writing skills to help others better and more effectively.
Have you volunteered at other organizations? If so, where?
Because I have a million different interests, I’ve held a variety of volunteer positions for many different organizations. I’ve prepared and served meals at homeless shelters; taught English at a university; helped students with math homework at a local library; and drew illustrations for a church bulletin. Besides my work with 365give, I also write blog articles for a Catholic young adults organization (Faith Connections in Toronto, Canada), and I teach Sunday school at a local Catholic church.
What is your most inspiring give?
I’ve been sponsoring a family of three in India with a donation of $20 per month. $20 per month in Canada is not a life-changing amount, so I don’t consider myself or my act of donating inspirational. However, what is inspiring for me is knowing that my little act of generosity is changing lives of three people. It strengthens my belief in consistent little acts of love resulting in a huge positive impact, and it encourages me to continue performing little acts of love any time and any way I can.
From all of us at 365give, thank you Theresa!
