Lots of people in this world perform volunteer work because they have good intentions, as they want to help others and make a difference in their lives. However, some people point out that those who try to help others by volunteering aren't completely altruistic. They say that those who want to make an impact do so because it makes them feel good and helps them feel better about themselves. They do it because they like it. Their is some truth to that. But I think it should be noted by everyone that although nobody who helps others do so for completely altruistic reasons, their's still a lot of altruism involved. Those who volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of others really do care about those they're trying to help.
