Volunteering, voluntary action, is the result of a free choice, it is an ethical, personal, free option that does not expect retribution or reward. The exact word is not disinterest, because the volunteer has an interest, a lot of interest, and obtains satisfaction in her personal motivations.
Volunteering is not just an ethical value, an attitude, but a concrete practice. Volunteering is done, it is action. If he is left alone in a vague spirit of a good person, a good citizen, he ends up being an empty and meaningless thing. Although it is also true that pure action is not possible without spirit, without values. But what changes the world, what faces problems and needs is action.
Volunteering, being a very important thing, cannot be treated as a personal, individual, testimonial, intimate practice. Because the goal of volunteering is to improve reality, transform the world and do it effectively. Faced with improvisation and spontaneity, the volunteer requires acting in an organized manner, joining forces. Therefore, voluntary action must be an organized, systematic, synergistic action, which requires an organization of associations or foundations in which to act.
