Description

Who volunteers? Why? What are you willing to do?

This title presents the hilarious, heartwarming adventures of a volunteering cynic.

Do the feel-good rewards commensurate with the time and effort involved? When Seb Hunter accidentally picks up the phone to a charity Fundraiser one day, he faces a moment of reckoning. It isn't so much that he lacks a social conscience; but he can no longer assuage it by buying the odd copy of the Big Issue and eating Fairtrade chocolate. So he decides to sign up, transform good intention into commitment, and get involved in as different types of volunteering as possible.

From falling out with fellow do-gooders at Oxfam to becoming embroiled in labyrinthine bureaucracy on behalf of a Congolese asylum seeker; from hospital radio to litter picking; and, from working at a homeless drop-in centre to averting climate change (although not all simultaneously), he sheds blood, sweat, and tears in the name of Good Causes. But can working for no financial reward actually make you a 'better person'?
