As a twenty-six year-old young professional living just outside Washington, DC where the cost of living ranks near the top around the country, it is impossible to support financially all of the causes that are near and dear to my heart. What inspires me to be involved with Vibha is that the organization enables me to make a monumental difference in the lives of children simply by donating a few hours of my time, and time is something we all have equal amounts of. The feeling I derive after the successful execution of a fundraising event or booth is unmatched from any other experience.
In addition, what inspires me to volunteer is the passion I see emanating from other Vibha volunteers around the country. The excitement about the projects Vibha supports is contagious, and when I see other people so engaged it makes me want to be involved and remain committed to the cause for a long time to come.
