Five ways to feel generous

The good news is that you don’t need to be wealthy to give. Instead, you can behave generously to feel good – and rich – with these five acts of kindness.


Five best volunteer activities

With this week being National Volunteer Week, why not get involved and devote some of your time to a worthy cause?


Green Gym

Many local community groups and organisations need volunteers to help them undertake new projects and the health benefits which a little manual labour can deliver are a positive side effect.


Volunteering online

If jumping on a plane is too expensive, and signing up to help at your local op-shop is too time consuming, you can still become a volunteer without leaving the comfort of your swivel chair.


New year? Why not volunteer?

The start of a new year is often a time when we consider how we can better ourselves by being healthier, learning a new skill or by being more selfless. Volunteering is a great way to achieve all three and give something back to the community.


Volunteering in Australia

Did you know that 34 per cent of the adult population in Australia contribute more than 700 million hours each year volunteering? Being generous with your time can be a great way to get out of the house and meet new people.


Volunteering overseas

Volunteering overseas, sometimes called voluntourism, is all about giving something back while you travel. Overseas volunteer programs can run for anything from one week to a year.
