“You know, sometimes the world seems like a pretty mean place. 
That's why animals are so soft and huggy.” 

Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person (SMAWL Volunteer) sees a glass of water and starts looking for an animal who might be thirsty.
