I do love doing volunteer job which is the one thing I want my son to inherit from me...for I always have good feeling inside after that I couldn't explain ...a happiness that is not fleeting!

1. Beautify a local park.
2. Spend quality time with the elderly.
Look in your attic or basement for old fans and AC units to donate.
Clean out your closets and donate your clothing.
Volunteer to help out at a local race.
Host a bake sale and donate proceeds to charity.
Donate cleaning supplies to a homeless shelter.
Help build affordable housing for those in need.
Volunteer at a local pet shelter.
Surf the net for other opportunities.

Hi Cecile, this is a really great top ten list. I think that teaching children about volunteerism is very important for our society. I read regularly to underprivileged children and will encourage my children to be active in volunteer work too. We have plans to take regular family trips that incorporate some kind of volunteer work, there are a lot of options out there now. You can post this to our site and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
