Selfless Service

Call 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.

To those ends, I recommend that you involve yourself in some activity of stewardship for your community, your neighbors, other people or our environment.

Consider volunteering your time, giving money, reading to children or something for the betterment of our society.


These are some of the organizations I recommend:
