HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHETHER IT IS ACTUALLY WORTH IT TO GIVE? Have you ever been asked to volunteer your time or donate money, and then wondered if it’s really worth it? Perhaps a person you know at a school, temple, social welfare home or environmental group called to ask if you could help out, when you already have plenty else to do? We talked with 25 people who give their time, talent or treasure to non-pro¬fits in Singapore. From twenty-somethings to a septuagenarian, we fi¬nd out why they give, what they do and whether it is worth it. Their answers will inspire, and even surprise you. So take a look to see, is giving worth it?
