Caribbean Work-Life Balance Trade Show 2013 - Volunteerism


Published on

We at Global Expert Systems, the hosts of the Caribbean Work Life Balance Trade Show 2013, support volunteerism. Here are a few small acts that we can think of.

1. Offer to help a senior citizen in your neighborhood who is less able.
2. Mentor a young child preparing for exams.
3. Practice random acts of kindness:
a. Offer someone a ride
b. Help keep the neighborhood tidy
c. Prepare a meal
d. Donate all the “things” and “clothes” you no longer use
e. Give away the extra fruits from your fruit tree
Remember there’s always someone less fortunate that you are.
