Many organizations, and preserved habitats continue today because of the volunteers who put their hearts and time into these projects.
Several years ago, I understood that giving back to my community had so many benefits for the Giver and Receiver. Helping with the preservation of our fragile eco system was appreciated and seemed like a win-win.
My website, www..volunteer-on-vacation-hawaii was born from the desire to give back. I had some great adventures exploring these varied opportunities. Clearing trails, working with animals, pulling invasive species, and planting native trees and plants were some of works that I had the good fortune to participate in.
Some of my guests at Hale Ho'okipa Inn have taken advantage of these opportunities and were blessed to visit places inaccessible to the public. Many have enjoyed interaction with the animal sanctuaries. I offer guests a discount on their stay for their community contributions.
Another fun opportunity is the Maui Nui Botanical Garden in Central Maui. Check them out for their "Weed and Pot" days where you can repot native species and pull invasive weeds.
Recently I was surprised by my company Better Homes and Gardens Advantage Realty Valley Isle, with an :Excellence in Community Service Award ."This award is given to the person who gets involved and contributes in their community and shows a genuine compassion towards others less fortunate or who need extra assistance. "
Well, then..here's to the Spirit of continued Giving...May we all lend a hand where needed.
