In the past, I always used to think of giving back as a sacrifice. I thought about how much time I was missing away from work and how much money it would cost to volunteer. However, after going on one life-changing humanitarian aid trip, my entire outlook changed. I learned that volunteering was about much more than spending time in a foreign country or with people who have less. If you have more to give, make sure you're giving it.
