My name is Anastasia Goncharenko and I want to tell you why I decided to dedicate myself to volunteering
I have always been indifferent to social problems or people who need for help or protection.
I was never looked for a special reason to help – I could just pay a check at the box office for an elderly person, or, seeing a post on social networks, make a certain recalculation for help. But every time I wanted to do something more significant, something more global. But I did not have any experience, no clear ideas or specific like-minded people.
And at a certain period of my life, when I felt that I really want to share my love, I want to help from the bottom of my heart, I want to make someone’s little dream come true – I realized that this is my vocation. Turning the pages of the social network, I saw a call for volunteering and fundraising. There were people nearby who supported my wish and showed me the direction of movement. I was actively involved in all aspects of this campaign. I did not expect approval or any enrichment, I just did what my heart said.
Charity is not something to brag about. This is what makes you a real person. This is what makes not only me happy. I realized that I can change someone’s life, I can create a better destiny, I can make someone’s dream come true. Happiness in the eyes of these people, their gratitude, their trust – this is the best reward for my efforts. Being human is simple, doing charity is a responsibility. Even when life throws up difficulties or a difficult period for me, I still remember those who need help and I will try to do everything to make these people feel love and significance
