On Volunteering

It's got to be your passion to do it because it has no pay.
It's got to be done regularly. Episodal volunteering has no visible impact to the beneficiaries.
It must be sincere. People easily "smell" if you fake it.
It's got to be pure. No self-interest, selfish motive nor personal gain.
It's got to be fun so you look forward to doing it again, and again, and again.
It's got to be done with a humble spirit. Less talk, more work, more sweat means more gains for the community.
You have to be ready to invest your precious time, talent and treasure. It's a total workout for the heart, mind, body, and spirit.

To sum it all: volunteering is an act of love. That's why I volunteer.
