International Volunteer Day, December 5th

Last week on December 5th, the world celebrated International Volunteer Day. I wanted to take this opportunity, though late, to thank all of the volunteers here in Argentina as well as the volunteers worldwide for their dedication and commitment!

Some people take volunteering for granted and some people see it as nothing more than a "good" experience. Volunteering is and can be a lot more than that. To volunteer is to step outside ourselves and to be concerned for the lives of others. I hope that each one of you considers becoming a volunteer one day.
