  • [ โ€“ ] whako reply Nice to see an awesome video encouraging others to volunteer! I volunteer at a mission to help feed the homeless north in my area and it just makes my day. I love to see others less fortunate being helped and supported, it makes everything about it feel amazing.
  • [ โ€“ ] GamerRaf reply I used to volunteer a lot when I was I Boy Scout. I haven't done it in a while but I always have to go around picking up trash every time I go to the beach lol.
  • [ โ€“ ] duffy reply :)
  • [ โ€“ ] BrianAiya reply i did a lot of volunteering but never Abroad volunteering. Volunteering with wild animals?? That's someone I would love to do. Cheetahs are sooo cool!
  • [ โ€“ ] jrswab reply Dude, cheetahs.... woh... Also skinning a horse sounds gross and smelly.
    • redRomina parent reply I have no sense of smell so I wouldn't know. It wasn't really that gross. I knew I was doing it for the pups. Cheetahs ๐Ÿ˜
  • [ โ€“ ] massctrlzam reply I volunteered for a month down in Cieneguilla, Peru during my four . five month stay in the country. I was working with the Vipassana Society to build the first meditation center of it's kind in South America. I met a diverse crowd of people, ranging from Swedish, Bulgarian, Columbian, Chilean, Mexican, French and much much more! You're definitely right! The relationships and experiences I gathered down there I will cherish for the rest of my life.
    • [ โ€“ ] redRomina parent reply That sounds amazing! I'm glad you were able to do that! Do you think you'll go again? Or do you think you'd like to volunteer somewhere else next time?
      • massctrlzam parent reply Of course! I have a long history with the Vipassana Society here in America, so I'd love to see how the Center turned out by serving a course down there eventually/. Are you familiar with Vipassana meditation?
  • [ โ€“ ] Zimbo_Gamer reply I first heard about this "volunteering" about 7 years ago. Honestly its got to be one of the best business ideas out there! Dude you're getting free labour from tourists that dont know any better. Oh wait, on top of that Mr. Tourist pays you. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚ I really hate it when foreigners interfere with matters they don't understand. Although u made a good point about understanding cultures. To be an immigrant is honestly the worst thing, people dont understand you culture or your country. It helps you understand just how fickle people really are. But hey, nice vid.
    • redRomina parent reply My video is about volunteering in general. As in... volunteering anywhere... at a local shelter, at a school, across the country, abroad, etc. You do not need to pay to volunteer. I never said anything about that. Your comment seems pretty bitter. Sorry if you had a bad experience at some point!
  • [ โ€“ ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas reply It's great that you got to experience so many positive things as a volunteer! I've always been a little too shy to put myself into such social situations. I've donated items and money to charities, but you are talking about a more personal experience. I see myself one day helping people more directly. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us!
    • redRomina parent reply I understand! Any little bit helps. But there are plenty of volunteer opportunities that are a little bit simpler and maybe won't be too much trouble for you. Like helping at a local shelter etc. (:
  • [ โ€“ ] StolenMoment reply Sorry, I just dont want bad things to happen. You are very valuable. I knew several people [men&women] that went abroad and didnt come home. Yes, Most are safe, usually.
    • redRomina parent reply The video is about volunteering in general. It's very ignorant to say that going outside of the US you will get rape and murdered when people get raped and murdered in the US every single day.
  • [ โ€“ ] StolenMoment reply Outside the U.S. is it not likely to be raped/murdered?
    • redRomina parent reply If that was supposed to be funny I missed the joke. Please don't make ignorant jokes on my channel that is about TRAVEL. ๐Ÿ™„
