Helping others gives you a feel good buzz.
The Chernobyl Children's Life line is a cause near to my heart. I have worked as volunteer host to give children from the irradiated land of Belarus for 8 years. Can you imagine still smiling when a dentist tells you(as a child) you need 4 teeth out and 6 fillings and you are not 10years old? One of 'our' lads this year is still smiling and happy because he will get good dental care here via charity and will eat non radioactivity polluted food for 4 weeks. I love the time these children come to our area and the people I meet and activities we all get to do its the best staycation I know!
