Volunteer doing what I like

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 26, 2003 07:08 AM
I was a Boy Scout. Before that, my parents started teaching me to help otheres. As a kid I did things like help mom take food to shut-ins and help dad mow the widow's lawn. I believe in volunteerism to help society.

By doing FS/OSS I can do my some of my volunteering while doing what I like to do anyway. I contribute to society while using current skill and learning new ones. A win-win situation.
