My desire to become a volunteer was born of my interest in children. I came across the work of the Cedar Foundation on the internet and I was very impressed by the initiatives and projects through which they support, develop and fight for a better future for the underprivileged children in Bulgaria. I wanted to become a part of the team, which is so dedicated to supporting the children. My motivation is also entangled with my desire to bring my knowledge and experience to something that gives me so much satisfaction. I was very happy when I was approved and joined the volunteer team. As a volunteer, I help Cedar develop their website. My knowledge and skills in web design are readily implemented in the foundation’s website. My communication with Alex, who is part of the Cedar team makes volunteering even more pleasant and makes me even happier to be helping them. I believe that volunteering helps me be a better person and allows me to contribute to the heightened awareness of Cedar’s work online.
When I talk to my friends about the Cedar Foundation, I always share two things. On one hand, how invigorating and inspiring it is to contribute, and, on the other, how this is an opportunity for me to express the necessity within me to help.
