Courtesy of justneverended over in the land of livejournals, this is an article about dependence on (and independence from) automotives. Of course, this is coming from a guy who's about to hop in his car to pick up a pizza. But you can't really carry a pizza on a bike, can you?
What's this have to do with volunteering?
Great question, hypothetical person. I could give you a long-winded answer involving my nostalgic love for riding my bike around Camden, but suffice to say that any kind of change in thinking involving a paired-down life without these....things we take for granted (read: cars/gas/ease-of-transportation) is welcomed in the kind of lives of volunteers live.
