I have been wanting to do some volunteer work for the last couple of months now. I like the idea of giving something of myself "for free" and at the same time experience situations that wouldn't cross my path in my everyday life.
The question was though: what kind of volunteer work?
I have been checking several websites regularly but nothing caught my eye. Not until yesterday when I saw this ad where they were looking for someone helping elderly people with the internet and the e-mail.
I got excited.
That is for me. I am good at that. I have been giving similar lessons on and off to friends (or friends of friends), mostly people of 50+, who were really glad that I could explain to them the Internet in simple words. It makes sense to do volunteer work on something I am good at, don't you think?
I slept on it before calling the lady at the nursing home.
This morning I was still excited.
Time to make a call.
