Calendar of Global Environmental Events and Volunteer Opportunities

If your life has been too hectic, burning the candle at both ends. If you feel the need of change and a chance to meet new friends.
If your view of your life's purpose is all too hazy, and you feel when you read the news that the world has gone crazy -
Then hie you off to volunteer, do something to help someone else. It will give you a sense of worth.
Then your spirit will be lifted, a spark will return to life. And you'll head home from volunteering strengthened to meet your joys and strife.
