Global Recession? Time To Volunteer Abroad

Wednesday, May 27, 2009


I can see no better way to deal with the financial crisis than to completely ignore the whole thing and use it as an excuse to go ahead and do what you’ve had in the back of your mind for years: volunteer abroad. Please note, this last statement was intended for most everyone, except for those working in the Obama administration, in which case I strongly urge you to ignore me (as hard as that may seem, I’m sure) and keep doing what you’re doing and help get the world out of this mess.

Anyway, Alix over at Bootsnall lists five reasons why right now is the perfect time to volunteer abroad, including the fact that your minuscule bank account will likely go much further in most parts of the world than your own; you’re not working now anyway, so why not do something to boost your resume; and finally, why not do your part and help out those who have been experiencing their own global recession their entire lives?
