Rising Unemployment = Rising Volunteerism

I saw it in the New York Times, and then the Puget Sound Business Journal - rising unemployment has created a bumper crop of volunteers for nonprofits all over the nation (well, on both coasts anyway). Obama's call to service helped things along too - thank you El Presidente. I imagine once jobs start coming back, volunteer hours will drop, but I hope that everyone's time pitching in will stay with them for awhile. Maybe they'll get a taste for working less too.
