There was a time when social work or volunteer work was confined to a particular region and was executed by a set of well established natives. Today, however, volunteering has crossed borders and people have started taking up volunteer travelling during their gap year or sabbatical period. But, it is not just now that this act of global altruism is into being. Volunteering has been a vital part of philanthropic community from decades and many have gone beyond the imagination of anyone in serving, and making life better for others. Here is a list of quotes from well-known personalities on volunteering:
