I used to volunteer until I began to realize that I was doing things no one else wanted to do. Many times volunteers take the place of giving someone a paying job.

Since this is anonymous, it is not about getting public recognition.

I am not taking a paying job away from anybody. I doubt very many, if any, volunteers are. The jobs wouldn't get done or the paid people would be working even more (unpaid) overtime.

Not trying to buy my way into heaven, since I don't believe in it.

Now that I have time I will pay back or pay forward. Seems like the price of admission for being human.

If someone's "good works" leads to a paying job, why is that a problem?

I volunteer everyday for the past two years, since I was laid-off from my job of 5 years (3 years ago) and not having any luck finding work. I'm not one to just sit home so I found that my adminisrative services are of some use and I like keeping busy. So until I find a job or can afford to retire totally I guess this is what I'll do. Besides I know this organization needs me and perhaps someday they'll be able to find the funding to pay me. One can only hope.
