Time To Help

 

Updated : May 11, 2009


VeryHappyPig loves its job, especially when we get to bring you uplifting stories like our latest entry.

An American man, who recently lost his job, became so frustrated with the spare time on his hands that he decided to donate his time to people in need in his community.

Seth Reams created a new blog, we’ve got time to help, were he organises local people to take part in volunteer opportunities around his home town Portland.

So far, the group has grown to more than 100 members, who have taken part in more than 60 opportunities around the city: everything from doing yardwork for a woman with multiple sclerosis to collecting dog toys and food to give to an animal shelter.

The organisation has fostered a wonderful sense of comraderie as well: one member of the group, a professional photographer, has offered free headshots to jobseeking volunteers who’d like to update their resumés; and a licensed massage therapist is giving free massages to group members.

Although Reams’ work with We’ve Got Time to Help doesn’t pay, he believes the affect its had on his outlook is invaluable.

“It’s turned around 180 degrees,” he said. “I feel like I’m doing something worthwhile. I’m busy every day with calls and e-mails and projects. It’s re-instilled a faith in humanity.”

VeryHappyPig’s heart has significantly warmed.
