What difference does it make - to volunteers?
Resource to share:
It is getting easier to volunteer in Hong Kong. You can now go to www.ho-sum.org
and find one-time or on-going volunteer opportunities. To participate, you have to become a volunteer member first. All projects posted on the website are held by government registered charities, so volunteers will not be "abused" by commercial companies. Have fun volunteering! Read entry
