Volunteer At Christmas
Christmas is a great time to escape the near-crazy levels of Christmas consumerism and lend a helping hand to others in need. Many employers are happy to extend the Christmas break with some extra days and most Western students can squeeze in a week or more around this time.
And if your workplace has an official shut down for a couple of weeks or more, you are one of the lucky ones to take advantage!
If you would like to get out of your comfort zone and volunteer abroad this Christmas, these projects below are flexible to work around your availability and offer a unique experience to do some good.
