I don't think there is many wrong reasons to volunteer. Especially abroad in third world countries. It's not cheap to do so. Unfortunately, we live in
an era that egotism is an acceptable part of our culture. If someones motivated to volunteer through self-serving means, the cause still benefits.
There's also many that promote their philamprothy not for self-recognition but to educate others about the charity. It also show where donations are
being put to work. I'm involved in animal rescue and I'm always letting everyone know about the animal(s) I am working with. It "humanizes" them and
make finding homes for them much easier. It also legitimizes the rescue the animals are receiving care from.
