Haha. Fair enough. I'm just thinking of something along the lines of 'virtue being it's own reward' - but that's only true if you believe that there is something virtuous about the work.

I just mean that it is... Perhaps increasingly common to find that 'charity' or 'volunteer' work turns out most often not to be something that people do find virtuous.

People over here rattle a tin for boards of directors... I have a hard time.

I heard someone say something about driving people to hospital visits / appointment for free... Over here we have multimillion (or is it billion?) dollar 'charities' (with boards of directors sitting on salaries in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year I would bet) that charge people... I don't know... $700 for an ambulance. That's what a 'charity' looks like, over here, I mean. And charity work... Rattling a tin on their behalf.

I'd want to be paid for rattling a tin. Yeah, I would.

What kinda charity / volunteer work are you doing?
