I learned about Cheerful Givers from my wife, Nirmala, who has been actively involved as a Volunteer. Being an employee at Apple Inc., I was blessed with an opportunity to contribute to products like iPhone, iPad and Mac, which have deeply touched millions of lives world-wide.
So I realized that I could contribute to Cheerful Givers with the benefits and efficiencies that technology has to offer. I've been involved in the design of the volunteer management database.
It is said that volunteering gives one an opportunity to work in this world selflessly and donating to a noble cause brings imperishable virtue and merit. There can be very few things in life more enriching and purifying than this. Let us all join hands and use Cheerful Givers as an opportunity for our joy and self-growth.
I applied through Volunteer Match in November 2009 and since then volunteering in the role of a Volunteer Manager. I was very happy to find something to my satisfaction and best part was I could work from home since I needed a computer and internet connection. I am so happy since I started volunteering because I interact with several volunteers daily & mentally it keeps me occupied since I am a home-maker. So this was a perfect opportunity for me to help & my husband also got involved.
The best part of this organization is even though it is located in Minnesota, one can volunteer from any part of the country by being a part of Cheerful Givers. This is a great organization to volunteer with and am sure you will enjoy helping Cheerful Givers just for a day.
