We wonder if the company CEO also volunteered!
That's right, volunteer as in "free!"

The Girls creator ditched the status-sharing site because she couldn't take the "verbal abuse," but it turns out she still has some haters checking out her photo prof.
At Vanity Fair's New Establishment Summit on Tuesday, the 29-year-old opened up to Katie Couric and Insta's CEO Kevin Systrom about how she learned that a nine-year-old girl had called her a "whore" on the picture-posting page.
The HBO star said she noticed that the tiny troll had spelled the insult incorrectly, so she decided to peruse her profile.
Once she did — and found videos of the child hanging out at home, speaking in fake accents, and eating chicken nuggets — she realized she didn't harbor any bad feelings towards her young critic, explaining:
During his speech in Beverly Hills, the Trainwreck director said:
"Someone has to stand up for these women and someone in his community needs to call him out and say, 'This is awful, you should be in jail.' We all need to support the victims and tell them, 'We care about you and we believe in you.'"
Over 50 women have accused the 78-year-old of sexual assault. The 47-year-old screenwriter, who is close with one of the former sitcom star's alleged victims, is fed up with the lack of punishment for the comedian:
This is pretty cute!
If you remember, Dunham talked to Ellen about how she wouldn't get married until it was legal for EVERYONE to get married!
Well since then, same-sex marriage has been made legal and Lena has gotten the pressure from everywhere — from friends, family and ever exercise instructors — to marry boyfriend Jack Antonoff!
The Girls star did say that she doesn't want to get engaged just because it became legal and still wants to wait until she and Jack are excited about it and it feels right!
She also joked that she feels a bit "intimidated" because "gay people are kind of killing it at weddings right now."
Ch-ch-check out the TV star chat about her wedding plans (above) and boast to Ellen about interviewing her childhood hero, Miz Clinton (below)!
Lena Dunham hasn't been shy about her support for Planned Parenthood and seems to be willing to do anything for the organization — even giving them the sweater off her back!
On Thursday evening, the Girls creator showed up to the non-profit's event wearing an appropriately themed burgundy sweater that featured a pink ovary shape on the front of it. LOVES it!
Apparently, the starlet was so inspired by the entire evening that she decided to throw in her outfit as an impromptu item for PP's auction. FIERCE!
The brunette beauty took to Instagram and explained:
We all know that the women on The View make quite a few controversial comments and Wednesday was no different!
Whoopi Goldberg addressed the controversy saying:
"The minute you put yourself out there, in somebody's underwear … you can't be surprised."
Raven-Symoné countered saying
"At the same time, people on Twitter need to keep their mouths respectful, because they come hard at people."
But the shock came when Candace Cameron Bure chimed in saying:
Lena Dunham's gone and put her foot in her mouth again.
On Wednesday, the Girls creator took to Instagram to apologize (below) for comparing certain websites to an abusive husband.
Previously, she noted:
"I used to read Gawker and Jezebel in college and be like, 'I can't wait to get to New York where my people will be to welcome me. And it's like, it's literally, if I read it, it's like going back to a husband who beat me in the face—it just doesn't make any sense."
Though we understand where Miz Dunham's coming from, many fans were upset that the feminist spokesperson made light of something as serious as domestic violence. Yikes!
Ultimately, Lena owned up for her social media hiccup and posted:
During a special hour-long interview on Re/code Decode, Lena and fellow creative mind behind Girls Jenni Konner sat down to discuss their new feminist newsletter, as well as online harassment.
The 29-year-old received a lot of hate after a recent snap she posted of herself in her boyfriend Jack Antonoff's Calvin Klein underwear — which wasn't particularly different compared to pictures she's posted in the past. But that didn't stop online commenters from putting in their two cents.
"It wasn't a graphic picture — I was wearing men's boxers, and it turned into the most rabid, disgusting debate about women's bodies, and my Instagram page was somehow the hub for misogynists for the afternoon."
Usually this kind of negative attention wouldn't get to Miz Dunham, but she admits feeling a certain responsibility with her younger fans:
