“As we go forward in life, in any endeavor, but I would say especially the good ones too, it's got to be authentic. It needs to be from the heart. It needs to be very real and if you are volunteering and you're doing it for an ulterior motive, people will feel it.”
 — Pamela Hawley, UniversalGiving
