I started volunteering in the aim of meeting new people but my experiences proved that it is more than that. It helps me to reduce my stress, it keeps me mentally stimulated and it provides me a sense of purpose.
My first volunteer experience in Ireland was when I volunteer for the Special Olympics Ireland which was conducted in Tallaght, Dublin. My responsibility was to guide the people to the stadium and it was very satisfying for me. The people were so happy to see us volunteers helping them to reach the stadium. Their smile of gratitude was more than money for me. I understood that the act of kindness, how small is that is never wasted.  I recommend all the people to volunteer because it will never disappoint you.
