Making the most of winter break by volunteering with an organization will not only make you feel good, but will give you an opportunity to make others happy during this year's holiday season.
You can also check with a local volunteer organization of your choice to see if there are things you can do to help out during the month of January. Since charitable organizations generally work on donations and money is generally rather tight, it's very seldom that you will find an organization that couldn't use some kind of help.
Whether you are interested in children's rights, domestic violence, helping the homeless, or donating time to read to the illiterate; the time spent will be well worth your time and a present to yourself and those you're serving.
So if you find yourself with a few extra days or weeks free during winter break, why not check with a volunteer organization of your choice and see if you can help out.
