Review for CHEERFUL GIVERS, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with Cheerful Givers since Nov 2009 and after 2 years still continuing as a volunteer manager. I am happy to say that I am glad I found by chance on Volunteer Match and expressed interest. I joined Cheerful Givers at a time when I didn't know what I was doing in my life. Volunteering with Cheerful Givers changed my life and keeps me mentally happy and I feel good that I am helping for a cause. Flexible hours and in a virtual role kept my mind busy and I feel satisfied that I am useful to somebody in need.

Review for CHEERFUL GIVERS, Eagan, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Cheerful Givers has made my life presently. Karen Kitchel, President of Cheerful Givers never fails to thank each and every volunteer that helps Cheerful Givers. She has been a joy to work with through the interaction of emails.

Every week, I dedicate around 10 hours of my time to volunteer for Cheerful Givers in the role of a Virtual Volunteer Manager. My role includes a variety of tasks and exchanging several emails with Karen as well as volunteers. I also gather, maintain, and update information on our volunteers. The information I collect makes its way into the monthly newsletter and annual report.

I have volunteered in many organizations over the past 15 months. But my volunteer work at Cheerful Givers is the best so far I have felt and the most fun I have had giving back to the community!

Helping people, even if I may not get to meet them, gives me the mental satisfaction of knowing that I am making a difference in their life, even if in a small way, while working from my home.

The best part of Cheerful Givers is that one can volunteer from any part of the country.
