YOU CREATE SUPERIOR SERVICE
it selfless, higher service, or just plain old making a difference
in the world. I believe that if you truly have the concept of service
in mind, then part of you needs to give selflessly and for the betterment
of humankind and our earth.
those ends, I recommend that you involve yourself in some activity
of stewardship for your community, your neighbors, other people or
volunteering your time, giving money, reading to children or something
for the betterment of our society.
are some of the organizations I recommend:
for Humanity helps construct homes for those in need.
Cousteau Society is concerned with the health of our oceans
Kids the World allows children with severe illnesses to visit
Disney World and experience a fantasy vacation with their families.
Make a Wish Foundation also works with children with serious
illnesses and their families to fulfil a life long wish.
World Wildlife Fund is dedicated to protecting the world's
wildlife and wildlands.
National Endowment for the Arts supports works of artistic
excellence, advances learning in the arts and strengthens the
arts in communities throughout the United States.
