According to their motto - “Love, truth, and service to community” - Xingyang Volunteer Federation works to enhance people’s sense of social responsibility through providing them various volunteer opportunities.The office is in Xingyang, Henan province.
It has been 7 years since I joined Henan. I found the public services brought a lot of goodness while attending activities.
Firstly, I became open-minded. If you are simple, the world will become simple. As a lyric goes, ordinary is the truth.
Secondly, I am happier and life became meaningful. When I left my job, there’s no one to speak with. Thanks to the public service activities, I knew many people. When people get to know you, they would like to talk and communicate with you. The nature of people is kind.
Thirdly, I learned a lot and my comprehensive capacities have been improved. I got to know many new things and attended activities. With the activities, I knew the society more and the difficulties of life. I am satisfied from what I am doing for people.
Fourthly, I made many friends through public activities. We have the same goal and make efforts together. They are valuable in my life. We tried our best to make contribution to the society, which may change your life. Thanks to the friends with positive altitude, my view for the world changed and I am stepping forward to the new life.
Fifthly, public services made my family more harmonious and happier. I became positive and more tolerate to my family members. I am willing to devote more to the family and my actions were good to build a loving family atmosphere.
Sixthly, with voluntary services, I acted as a model to my children. The love can be passed on from generation to generation. What I have done and spoken would influence my children. Though some children seemed not to listen to you, their inner world would be impacted. I believe, dedication can benefit the life of the children.
Seventhly, as a volunteer, confidence can be built. With more activities, positive energy can be enhanced. Life becomes meaningful. Voluntary services are a kind of fashionable life which brings whole new world to you. If you insist on doing, your life will be changed.
Eighthly, volunteers are helpful for the job, which benefits to the health. Voluntarism means dedication, love, mutual help, development, etc. Good work ethic can help to cultivate serious and responsible altitude.
Ninthly, most of volunteers are very young. With them, I was affected by their vitality and passionate.
Tenthly, through public services, we do goodness to other people. We are volunteers and we serve for people.
From now on, if we insist on doing good for 10 or 20 years, many things can be improved. Let’s serve the needy people together and achieve self-worth through helping people.
