It takes a big heart to work in social services. Like education, the people who work in the social service industry do more in a year than most people do in a lifetime in terms of giving back to society, yet are vastly underpaid for the work they do. We need organizations like the American Red Cross and various support networks for homeless people and those in need. Yet they receive so little funding compared to what they need. Dare to do something for any one of these charitable organizations, even if it means that the work you put in helps just one person in need.
