Doing hands-on volunteer activities and seeing the positive impact right on the spot gives me a great feeling. One of the absolute best experiences I've had was volunteering at a Missionaries of Charity nursing home and hospice in DC, helping Mother Teresa's nuns with simple tasks such as hanging laundry, feeding chickens, mopping floors, and serving residents Saturday lunch. I've never felt so joyful and grounded.

Unfortunately, though, I more often seem to end up volunteering on committees and project teams these days. It feels too much like my everyday work and doesn't feed the soul in the same way.
