We at the Dusty Horseman Gallery and Deltiology in Camden donate our unsold magazines to the KershawHealth hospital in Camden. The staff is always appreciative when we bring those copies of magazines for it helps inpatient status patients to spend their time reading. It started me thinking that if the staff at KershawHealth is appreciate of this little gesture, how appreciative if people donate their used magazines and books or even board games that they no longer play, or even more important, their time.

It also has me thinking that there are other organizations that you can donate your time and effort to. Can you imagine that the more people donate their time or money to helping others, the less people are dependent on government services which would cut back on government spending, which would lower the taxes the government would need if people provided these services rather than the government if people just helped each other out like in years past when people in the community helped each other out?

Neighbors helping neighbors et over the bump in the road.

Even with the upcoming elections, you can volunteer to help any cause or candidate that you believe in.

You don’t need to volunteer at any organization. You can help your neighbor or help the person who may be confined at home -- bring them food or run to the store for them. Or the single mother or father who may be struggling -- help them out by doing whatever they may need help with. Or even in the drive-through -- pay for the person in the car behind you.

Not only does helping others out make the other feel better, helping them believe that there are people out there who care, but it will also make you feel better, for you helped others.
