10 Reasons to Give Back.

It’s Friendship Friday! Today is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

I thought I’d share 10 reasons of why people give back. I know when I volunteer many of these beliefs are what get me up in the morning.

  1. Make an impact.
  2. To help your community. This is not necessarily the city you live in, but your circle of friends, resources, or trust that you rely on.
  3. Meet others or to be social.
  4. Improve your own health.
  5. Take the lead. By practicing leadership you become better at leading.
  6. Share expertise. By teaching someone else you will become better at what you do.
  7. Improve your skills or learn new ones by offering to help.
  8. Build your resume.
  9. Find new opportunities. When you network with new people you find new things to explore. This could be a new friend, a new skill, or even a new career.
  10. Because it just plain feels good.

If you’ve been around a minute you know how I am always talking about the impact you create, the ripple, how to help others, etc. And now you know why.

I think my number one why I volunteer or give back is to make an impact no matter how small. What’s your reason to volunteer?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
