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.
Every time I cut my mother's hair she would say, “I fear that I have to bother my child with this. Luckily, I have 3 children. One of them always has time to come cut my hair. How about you? Who will come and cut hair for you when you are getting old.”
I said with a smile, “I am not like you. I can go to the hair salon for a fashionable hair cut when I am old. ”
My mum said seriously, “what if you are too old to go to the hair salon?”
I did not know how to answer.
To be honest, I am already concerned about this.
Recently volunteers took their own tools and shampoo to the senior citizens home to cut their hair for them. The senior citizens smiled happily.
I am delighted by the pictures of this activity. If every one of us can spare some time, we can do something for the elderly. If our whole society can take action, everyone will always have someone around when we get old. The new generation of volunteers will come help us just as we did as volunteers before them.
I greatly esteem our volunteers. Their actions will inspire more and more people to join. Hopefully in the future society will be just like one large warm family.
Now I would like to tell my mother: I am not afraid of getting old. If we are willing to offer our love, we will be helped by many people.
