Update: Registrations for the 14-Day Kindness Challenge at PE have closed but you are still free to do the challenge at your own pace, any time. You can always share your results in the comments section in Basked in Sunshine. Thank you so much for reading my experience. I hope it will serve as an inspiration for you guys/gals in the near future. Let's make the world a kinder place - together. :)
What volunteer work did you select?
I have to be honest, I was confused on what to do at first since I'd only consider volunteer work as something I'd do outside of my home (Example: cooking/cleaning at a church, helping out at the school library, sign-up for a cause). While all of this types of volunteer work are great I didn't feel like I could find a place to do volunteer work like this at the current moment - so - I decided that in the meanwhile I'd do volunteer work for my mom by tutoring my little brother on his school subjects but I will keep searching for opportunities to sign-up to an official organization and do my volunteer work. :)
Which organization have you signed up for (or will be signing up for)?
My mother? haha
Why did you pick this organization?
As I explained previously, I have yet to find an official organization to sign-up for so in the meantime I'll tutor my little brother.
What is the duration you have selected to volunteer with them?
I decided to tutor my little brother starting today till first semester ends in December or till I finish my volunteer hours (In my country you have to do 40 hours of volunteer work to graduate from highschool).
I learned that if we give up before we try then your goals will lead to nothing. I learned this lesson because I know I did not give my all for today's task due to the 'limitations' but the truth is this 'limitations' I'm speaking of are purely mental. There are tons of organizations to sign-up to in my country. It's just a matter of trying before saying "I can't".
Update: I wasn't able to sign up for volunteer work at the Church because the only volunteer work available is singing and I don't sing but my friend offered me an alternative. She said I could teach her and another mutual friend to cook ramen(my specialty) and different types of desserts and we're gonna do that at least once a month! :) Though I'm still on the lookout for signing up to an official volunteer work.
