Review for CORAZON DE VIDA FOUNDATION, Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There are many things that a person can experience when volunteering. Mostly, there is a sense of fulfillment from knowing that you have just made a difference even if in the smallest way. Of all the volunteer work I have ever done I would have to say that going to an orphanage with Corazon de Vida was an experience that I will never forget. I remember a little girl that followed me everywhere I went and she seemed sad so I spent time one-on-one with her and I taught her to make an origami flower- she was so happy to learn something new. What I love about this organization is that you do not have to have a specific skill, or knowledge, degree, money (just enough for the bus trip) in order to make a difference both for the children and even yourself.

Role:  Volunteer & gave time to children in an orphanage in Tijuana.
