10 tips on Volunteering Wisely-2

A busy working day today and it’s just going to end now. We were talking in previous post 10 tips on Volunteering Wisely. We already talked the one that is research the causes or issues important to you. Today we are going to talk about another 3 tips.

·     Consider the skills you have to offer.

·     Would you like to learn something new?

·     Combine your goals.


(2)Consider the skills you have to offer.
If you enjoy outdoor work, have a knack for teaching, or just enjoy interacting with people, you may want to look for volunteer work that would incorporate these aspects of your personality. Many positions require a volunteer who has previous familiarity with certain equipment, such as computers, or who possesses certain skills, such as ability in athletics or communications. For one of these positions you might decide to do something comparable to what you do on the job during your workday, or something that you already enjoy as a hobby. This sort of position allows you to jump right into the work without having to take training to prepare for the assignment.


(3)Would you like to learn something new?
Perhaps you would like to learn a new skill or gain exposure to a new situation. Consider seeking a volunteer opportunity where you’ll learn something new. For example, volunteering to work on the newsletter for the local animal shelter will improve your writing and editing abilities – skills that may help you in your career. Or, volunteering can simply offer a change from your daily routine. For example, if your full-time job is in an office, you may decide to take on a more active volunteer assignment, such as leading tours at an art museum or building a playground. Many nonprofits seek out people who are willing to learn. Realize beforehand, however, that such work might require a time commitment for training before the actual volunteer assignment begins.


(4)Combine your goals.
Look for volunteer opportunities that will also help you achieve your other goals for your life. For example, if you want to lose a few extra pounds, pick an active volunteer opportunity, such as cleaning a park or working with kids. Or, if you’ve been meaning to take a cooking class, try volunteering at a food bank that teaches cooking skills.

A talk on HDTV


I and my friends were talking about volunteering and seva at matar medical camp. We are having more than 20000 visitors in our single day free medical camp and on an average each patients need to wait for 60-90 minutes in the queue. So, we were thinking to use this 60-90 minute waiting period to educate people on health. It includes Individual health as well as general health awareness.


Few volunteer recommend to have stand alone visual display. But it’s static and it requires lot efforts to change the display contain and pictures. Someone suggest that we should go with TV with on playing videos on it. One volunteer suggests that we should go with Cheap HDTV. We all did not know anything about HDTV. We ask him to explain us what is it and how it works?


He told us that HDTV is High definition television which is a digital television broadcasting system with higher resolution than traditional television system. High definition television is the highest form of digital television. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is the same as a movie theater screen. This is possibly HD’s biggest selling point. The other is the resolution. High definition is the best available picture on a television. Instead of using the conventional 576 lines to plot a TV picture, HDTV uses 720 or 1080 lines.


He added that, With HDTV, we could also play movies in their original widescreen format without the letterbox “black bars” that some people find annoying. Cheap HDTV is available in the market. Even we can buy Cheap HDTV online. High Definition Television offers the highest quality picture available in the world of home entertainment. In addition, the pixels in each of those lines are closer. This results in a hugely improved picture quality, clarity and color definition. It was nice to know about HDTV from him.



What is Volunteering?

To understand volunteering, we need to understand volunteer word first. A volunteer is someone who works for a community or for the benefit of environment. Volunteer is someone who works for selfless activity. Activity can be any in physical form but his purpose to do that activity is selfless. He/She is doing that for someone other than him/her self. Volunteer choose to do his/her activity. The word comes from Latin, and can be translated as “will” (as in doing something out of ones own free will). Many serve through a non-profit organization – sometimes referred to as formal volunteering, but a significant number also serve less formally, either individually or as part of a group. A person helping a blind man to select from roman shades or cellular shades is also called volunteer. Any act done without self motive is called volunteering.


There is other opinion about volunteer. It says volunteer may or may not get paid.

A volunteer may or may not get paid or receive compensation for services rendered. Sometime in society, person ready to give his/her time or service and he/she be paid.


Volunteering comes in many forms: giving free education to illiterate people, helping government in times of natural calamity, cleaning wood blinds or faux wood blinds or vertical blinds in veteran  care house or orphan house, serving food at the local homeless shelter, providing computer technical support to a non-profit organization, acting in a leadership capacity on a charitable organization’s board of directors or coordinating the emergency response in the case of a disaster. Around the world volunteer centers exist to support the voluntary sector and make a difference in the communities that they serve.
