What should everyone try at least once?
Hands on volunteer work. It amazes me how many people have never actually gotten involved in anything good or meaningful. Even if you don’t have a cause that you naturally gravitate to or feel strongly about, everyone should be helping the world in some way and feel the satisfaction of actually getting involved with something. Go work in a soup kitchen, walk a dog at a shelter, or even collect donations for an organization. There are endless ways to be involved and I know so many good people who have never done even the simplest things which is shocking to me. The feeling of knowing you have actually helped someone or something is addictive and wonderful, and I think something that would make the world a better place if more people experienced and realized how good it feels to do even the easiest of good deeds.
