Volunteering can add years to your life - A study of 10,000 people, published in the journal Health Psychology found that those who regularly volunteer are less likely to die than non-volunteers. And people who give back for the "right" reasons (e.g., to help others, not to feel better about themselves) stay alive the longest.
