It is easy for somebody to sit and complain about how much life sucks for him. It takes a good breed of somebody to volunteer to help others who are worse off than he is. My life sucks, others have it worse off, so I do my best to help them out, and it helps me realize that I really do not have things that badly off after all. It also gives my life a sense of purpose, a sense of direction where there was none beforehand.
I would tell you where I volunteer at in this thread, if it were not for the fact that my city is listed in my profile. I have to keep some degree of anonymity, after all, especially when there is next to none left for me at this point. But rest assured, there are people who have things worse off than I do in my town, and I am doing my best to help some of them out directly.
So, if you volunteer for a cause you believe in, if you volunteer to help people out who have it worse off than you do, you are a winner in my opinion. Speak out in this thread if you are in this camp.
