I don’t think that such a topic will get NO as an answer. Of course it’s obvious that it’s a responsibility and a heavy one indeed to keep balance on the planet, it’s not just volunteering, it’s an unseen necessary role for each of us. 

I’m sure that if at least two of every ten persons do a small deed as a community service, there will not be poor people or needy people. Imagine if billions of individuals around the world have the sense of gratitude to the society that they feel like they have to give back, what would the world be like?!

I used to be a member in different organizations that offer help in different ways, like project raising organizations and charities also. It makes me feel better to do something helpful, even the smallest thing.

In India I have done community services such as cleaning the parks and schools. Here, the local municipal takes care of them. We just pay the taxes.

But I take part in community services organized by our temple. Once in a while we clean the surroundings of our temple and help out in the orphanage there. Every day someone volunteers to water the plants there. My turn comes once a month. 

In this modern world most of us have time for online communities. But sadly we don’t have time for the real community we live in!

 In the big city i live in i don`t  see  such a thing as  community service volunteering. My little service  to the community is at least    not to trash with paper the city, we have trash bins on every corner  and yet the streets are filled with  garbage. What a pity !!
