KQED offers up this report, embedded below, about the National Conference on Volunteering and Service currently happening at the Moscone Center. The conference almost got canceled, due to the slashing of non-profit budgets across the country, but because of the "compassion boom" described by the spokeswoman here, Nicola Goren, and the push for volunteerism by the Obama White House. So far there's been a good turn out, with over 5,000 attendees the first day. So, if you happen to be funemployed, consider donating some of your otherwise misspent time to a good cause, huh?
