Do you spend time doing things around your community to make a difference for others? I wouldn't be surprised if you are, because according to this article from US News and World Report, 32 percent of American adults aged 45 to 54 are volunteering - up from 22 percent back in 1990. That's great!
Check out the article - it's all about the baby boomer generation volunteering and AARP's Create the Good. Specifically it talks about "personalized" volunteering. According to the author, "if you have time and an interest in volunteering, you literally can create your own program. Aided by Internet sites that match needs and volunteers, along with other 'do it yourself' online tools, boomers are rewriting the book on how volunteering works." (One of those sites is Createthegood.org!)
Do you think volunteering has become more personalized? Could you find a way to use what you already like to do - like knitting, dog walking or baking - and turn it into a volunteer effort?
Now go out and enjoy the weekend - and if you are finding time to do good, share with us!
