PBO made a big deal about volunteerism during his campaign and in the early part of his time in office. I was just wondering how many of the CM's here have started to volunteer and if so, what made you choose your cause?
*I am not including volunteer hours that were already dedicated before Obama's call to volunteerism.

Who is PBO??
I have volunteered to help run a week long camping program for 90 boys every summer for 20+ years, and I will continue to do so.... not b/c of any politician, but b/c it makes me feel good and I know those boys appreciate it. I also volunteer to sit on the board of directors for a Summer Camp, and have just started volunteering at my DD's school. I don't do any of these because I have to or b/c of any politician!! I do them b/c it's just the right thing to do!!

I have not volunteered anywhere for the last year. I have a list of places that I have researched but every place wants a scheduled commitment. I live between 3 locations and work on call so a scheduled slot just does not work for me at this point in my life.
I have not been politically motivated to volunteer since HS-
