Military kid says, "I volunteer -- it's actually kind of fun!"

It started out when I was in the 1st grade. Every time my dad left, my mom and I did a project. One time we picked up trash at the day care. A different time we took lunch to old people. It makes me feel better and I miss my dad a little less. Plus it makes the time go faster. Right now I'm helping my school make care packages to send troops. It's actually kind of fun!"

Tip:

If you haven't been a volunteer before, start small. Pick a small project that's easy to do. This way you'll be successful and feel great!
