“It’s not about how much we give, but how much love we put into giving” – Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa has said many brilliant things in her time that still stand true today, one of our favorites here at RTD is this quote here, “Spread love everywhere you go, let no one ever come to you without leaving happier”.
Whether you are trying to be the next Mother Teresa, or just a good human being, you should start with volunteering your time.
Volunteering is good for your soul, and recently proven evern good for your health!

Also, other evidence indicates that those who volunteer at an earlier age are less likely to suffer from I’ll health later in life.
Besides it being good for yourself, let’s take a look at how volunteers make a difference in day-to-day life for others:
– Volunteetd help to keep our neighborhoods, streets, parks, rivers and waters clean and safe for others.
– Volunteers tutor, teach, mentor and coach young people with everything from homework to personal crises, supporting others out of the goodness of their hearts.
– Volunteers educate the public on health and safety, while doctors and nurses also donate their time and medical knowledge to free clince and natural disaster areas worldwide.
