Recap of The Office's Christening Episode

Is Volunteering Good For the Office?

We're in the mood to give thanks this November on Savvy, and I started the month out with tips to starting your own volunteering initiative at the office. This week on The Office, it seems like Michael is swept away with the Good Samaritan spirit for a brief moment at the christening of Jim and Pam's baby when he hears some youth parishioners speak about their passion to help the less fortunate in Mexico.

Overwhelmed with emotion, Michael impulsively jumps on a bus that's heading straight to Mexico to build a school with the youth ministry. Andy happily tags along. Unfortunately, after 45 minutes of being on the bus, both start to have second thoughts about their rash decision. Michael and Andy manage to get off the bus before it crosses into another state, but at least they have good intentions, right?

Do you think that having a volunteer project at the office is a good idea, and would you be interested in starting one or participating if your company created a social responsibility initiative?
