The visit last Tuesday.
I thought it was a nice start to begin this chapter through hands-on experience. It was very cold but considering that these people work in the winter too (or do they?) it was fine.
My fundamental beliefs on volunteering is to stay positive and don't rush.
Most of these projects ask for too many people, so there are enough human capital.
Since majority of the people think that they are sacrificing soooo much to freely help out others, people easily can get in a bad mood.
In short, why not try to have fun if we're going to be helping others in a setting like this?
