The Feel Good Feeling

by Hawi A.

I am volunteering at the Ramsey County Care Center in St.Paul. We did this service project to learn how to help our community by volunteering. I have learned that volunteering is important because you do it for yourself not because you have to or because you want money for it, but because it matters to you that you have made some body happy for a day. You have let somebody know that you care about them.

It makes me happy at the end of the day to know that I have helped a person smile and I have helped them live longer by making them laugh. To help them forget about their pain for a minute and help them think about how many lives they have changed and what they have done for this world. Most of all telling them that they are always appreciated for their work.
