  • Why is the clip for this video Mother Theresa? That woman was one nasty piece of work who believed the suffering of the poor brought them closer to god and should be celebrated. Her Calcutta Home for the Dying provided cots for the poor to die on with few other facilities. Many were just suffering from malnutrition and would have recovered with a decent diet and clean water.

  • Her thumbnail made me laugh…..thought she was a SJW on one LOL ��. Actually just a beautiful girl who’s a better person than me. I subscribed for her.

  • Look at all them volunteers, just volunteering like that. In our ‘Murica no less. Just giving away there time and efforts to “make life better”.There aughta be a law or something. Think of the children!

  • I enjoyed listening to Eric!
    The three key points of how volunteering can help you live a longer life are:
    �� Make the connection
    �� Make it pure
    �� Get the right dose
    Hope this helps! ��

  • he learned the truth about mother money grubbing theresa…she gave hungry people a place to starve to death…what a saint…food would have been better…every time anyone donates a can of food they are better than that so called saint

  • Volunteering is nothing but helping to the people who are in need. By doing this we can gain some knowledge, become creative, develop skills. Volunteering shouldn’t be there only in one society or one community, it should be there around the world so that the people around the world understand the importance of volunteering. Onata is the one which provides an opportunity to the people, who are interested in volunteer, here you can find out all the opportunities.

  • Well he hasn’t taken blood money from the Duvalier family of Haiti after killing & torturing thousands of Haitians. Mother Theresa did. He hasn’t taken one million dollars from Junk Bond King, Charles Keating, who cheated 20,000+ elderly people out of their life savings. Mother Teresa did. & he hasn’t caused hundreds of thousands to suffer, die and become stupider because of an obsession of finding Jesus through suffering. Mother Teresa did.:\

  • Amazing video. Can I pls kindly mention our volunteer teaching English or Chinese project in Thailand. https://vimeo.com/180266515. Volunteering is an amazing experience especially at our school as we also offer tours to the waterfall, jungle and caves.

  • fascinating. thats why the bible says Acts 20:35 New International Version (NIV)

    35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

  • I enjoy doing quite a lot of voluntary work mainly with vulnerable people like the old and mentally or physically impaired. I’m no saint by a long shot but neither was that woman. I suggest you do some research before you call people idiots.

  • This activities is very nice and correctly action the organization aim it will be honestly run then suitable performance in individuals life. thanks.

  • Great video! Here you can find everything you need to know about voluntourism and volunteering! It’s not easy to volunteer without causing harm! https://www.facebook.com/responsiblevolunteering

  • No, she’s not as saintly as you might think. google ‘Criticism of Mother Teresa’

    And LipTV, please do not use a portrait of mother teresa on a segment about volunteering work

  • I think this has roots in the Bible, particularly Jesus Christ who came to the world in complete service to human beings. He even commanded them to love and be in service to one another. Pretty awesome that you’ve discovered this, and wishing you the best on your journey of volunteering.

  • Terrific statement! Well done. I’ve been a volunteer for 20 years now and love every minute of it. While I don’t volunteer in the normal sense, I spend large amounts of time helping non-profits by building and maintaining their websites. Something I can do well and it brings joy to help publicize their needs.
