Thread Name: An amazingly altruistic thing to do.
Subject: RE: An amazingly altruistic thing to do.
leveller - it was just the word amazing.
Its not amazing - its what most British people do in their lives - in one way or another - from those who gave their lives in a war - to those who pick up other peoples dog poo. We nearly all contribute to society in one way or another.
The VSO in Britain has been organising such trips abroad for a long time, and many 1000s have gone. In my experience, the students who go are not amazing - just normal.
I hope Bill enjoys his year abroad - and I'm sure the children will gain a lot.
