    Recession Revival, Spending Time & Earning Happiness


    We all know that we are in an Economic Recession. Americans can't afford anything fun and are expected to practically work for free.


    What if I told you that you could enjoy working and earn far more than money could ever buy? How?


    Volunteer work. Start a Recession Revival to stop your economic woes by volunteering at your local Foodbank.


    Foodbank, a non-profit organization, offers various volunteer opportunities to both energize communities and increase hunger awareness. The L.A. Foodbank, http://www.lafightshunger.org/, has partnered with Feeding America to feed our nation. There are millions of people suffering in this world from everything from starvation to homelessness. We must do our part to help make this world a better place.


    Given the recent situation of the economy, Americans, including Oprah, are turning to volunteer work to maintain their enthusiasm. Offering services will give back exponentially to everyone involved, including yourself.


    Volunteer! Bring out your inner humanitarian to help others by helping yourself. Sense of worth, confidence, and overall happiness will rise, while the recipients of the efforts will be eternally grateful.


    Donate yourself to a better society by helping neighbors, holding doors open, attending Foodbank, supporting non-profit organizations, and contributing towards other random acts of kindness.


    Lead by example. Revive the life within your soul by offering time for fulfillment, because there is no amount of money that can buy happiness. Trust me, the economy will follow!
