Discussion on: Do You Volunteer?

For my part -- and to my shame -- I've done very little volunteering.

I tend to make the standard excuses: lack of time, etc. In reality, it's probably down to fear. It sounds ridiculous ... but starting anything new -- even something as well-meaning as volunteering -- is scary, right? That fear has been enough to put me off.

Just to add: This question was inspired by @jamescrowley 's awesome post Getting started with #techforgood – what I’ve found so far. Recommended reading for anyone who's interested.
