If You Could Help Australia By Being a Volunteer, Would You?

Volunteer in Australia is your chance to get to know a continent that is famous for its nature and animals at the same time - the Outback, the Great Barrier Reef, koalas, kangaroos, wombats, cities like Cairns and so many more. Australia is a bucket list travel destination for many volunteers, so why not combine your journey with doing something good?  If you love animals and the fascinating wildlife Australia has to offer, volunteer at one of the many sanctuaries, research facilities and wildlife rehabilitation projects. What do you think LiveTribers? If you could help Australia by being a Volunteer, would you?

    I volunteer for a local landcare group, it is probably 2 hours a month. My main motivation is that I enjoy it, the people I work with, what I have learned about landcare. I know that we have achieved a lot but volunteering is a balance between making a difference and what the individual gets out of the process, it needs to do both for people to make the effort.

    I was shocked one day when, after mentioning that I volunteered for meals-on-wheels, a woman asked if I got paid for doing it. With money - no, but in knowing I had contributed to my local community, the smiles on the faces of the recipients and all for a relatively short amount of my time. There are so many more important things than money! I no longer do meals-on-wheels (I moved to another town) but now volunteer at the local school. If we all did a little, whatever we can, when we can, I'm sure it would benefit our country greatly and ourselves, immeasurably!

    With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormous. Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for us, the volunteer. The right match can help us to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need. One of the best ways to make new friends and strengthen existing relationships is to commit to a shared activity together

    Altruistic volunteerism in Australia saves our various Governments and LGAs millions annually. All this in a society that tolerates some of the highest paid CEOs and Public Servants in the OECD...... all seemingly tolerated by the heavily milked average taxpayer who form the basis of the volunteers.....so who truly are the mushrooms!?

    Often volunteers are just being used as cheap/free labour. Why pay staff when someone will do it for free? Like many 'Helping hand stores' the staff are mainly volunteers while the stores make large profits which often go accounted for instead of being used for the benefits of the needy.
