The Real Reward of Giving

So often it is easy for us to take for granted how much opportunity life has given us.  So often, just the place we were born gives us so many advantages that we sometimes overlook.  Now is your time to give back!  Volunteer your Time, Donate your Energy is about more than just having a life changing experience.  By becoming a Volunteer Around the World you will have a powerful, positively impact on the lives of the people you will serve.  You never know what little thing you may do for another person that will mean something huge to them.  What we do know is that YOUR life will forever be changed by those little things!


“VAW has shown me the real reward of giving. Which is the satisfaction of knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life. The experience of not only volunteering in the medical field but to help out in a third world country where it is needed most is an amazing feeling. This experience has opened my eyes and made my passion for medicine even greater then it already is. I have fulfilled part of my dream which is giving to those who have nothing. The golden rule of life is to give out of heart and expect nothing in return and I did just that and although there was no reward in hand that is because the reward came to the heart and that is why this has become an unforgettable experience that I will tell my children, my grandchildren, my great grandchildren and so forth. Thank you VAW!!!”
