Great things about being blind. Belated happy volunteer day.

I believe that earlier this week it was international day of volunteers. So happy day to all volunteers. I've always enjoyed volunteering for many reasons. Learning new skills, helping my community, having fun, meeting new people, giving back to others. As someone with a disability, volunteering has been very important to me too. I was able to practice tasks and learn skills so that in job interviews, I could explain with confidence how I could do a job because I had volunteered doing it already. Then, I got hooked on volunteering and have done some sort of volunteering ever since. I also have benefited from volunteers. From volunteer readers and drivers to the puppy raisers who raised my guide dogs and so much more. So, get out there and volunteer. It's great!
