Volutneerism, it's contagious!

In my opinion, to make a long term change requires a long term commitment. To create a society in which everyone could have a home seems very unrealistic at this point in time. This may be due to the fact that several families are losing their homes everyday. However, from a volunteer stand point, it is quite possible that someday everyone could have a roof over their head. There is great value in community service but deeper meaning in finding interest in a particular type of service. When you can commit to long term service in a specific area, that is where the most progress occurs. That is the exact reasoning behind the story of the Stanford student. It takes a consistent effort to make the most change. Convince others to partake in your service interest and to commit to long term assisting other than the seasonal "feel good" service.
