Three Reasons You Should Take A Day to Volunteer

Americans forfeit millions of vacation days annually. These days could not be rolled over, could not be paid out, were not banked, or used for any other benefit—they were purely lost. By losing out on this time, Americans are becoming de facto volunteers for their employers. Typically when I volunteer, I want a t-shirt or at least some juice and cookies. So instead of volunteering for your employer this year, take a cue from National Philanthropy Day to take a day off and volunteer. It’s a win-win: you get the benefits of taking a day off and your time is spent doing good.
