The Everyday Hero
Whilst we may not all get the opportunity to be Batman, we can all take every day opportunities to give back to both our local community and the wider global community. Thanks to the internet, altruism has become a globally recognised phenomenon, with support of schemes like ‘pay it forward’ and ‘random acts of kindness’ taking off across the world.
Social media has also allowed many to raise awareness of illnesses, diseases and blood shortages that need immediate attention. Indeed, reactions to campaigns like these have saved many lives.
At FluCamp, we are proud of the volunteers who take part in our trials. Whilst cold and flu is fortunately relatively harmless for most healthy and young people; a nuisance rather than critical, for the elderly and vulnerable the flu can be a more troubling diagnosis. Sadly, the flu virus can prove fatal for those who are older or are suffering from a compromised immune system.
Our volunteers are helping us research causes and potential cures for viruses that strike down vulnerable people daily. That’s why we like to think of our volunteers as everyday heroes! By giving up some of their time, they are helping us find a way to save lives.
