Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Levinson, director of the regional volunteer network Big Sunday, offers one-stop reading for the socially conscious looking to get involved in and substantively contribute to their communities. He writes briskly and enthusiastically, sharing how to identify your skills and match them to a nonprofit or cause to make your support even more valuable, how to gauge your commitment level before getting involved, the characteristics of good and bad volunteers, and how those required to do volunteer work can make the most of it. He shares tips for those looking to volunteer as a family, school, faith group, or business, and provides advice for retirees, those between jobs, prospective fund raisers, and those looking to make the holidays brighter for those less fortunate. Thorough, engaging, and highly relevant, this "do good, feel good" book is an invaluable resource for those contemplating new forays into volunteerism. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

From Library Journal:

According to Levinson-who founded the regional community service event Big Sunday-most people want to make the world a better place. He offers a wealth of ideas for volunteer opportunities and uses his experience to give advice on finding the right fit, managing expectations, and leaving a negative situation. His list of "52 Ways You Can Help in the Coming Year" is a gold mine. This is a great starting point for businesses, families, religious groups, retirees, and job seekers wanting to perform some kind of community service. (c) Copyright 2010.
