Marga Palau is a clear example of an all-terrain volunteer, willing to do whatever is needed for WYD
First, she offered to work as a driver, taking bishops from on place to another. Marga thought that with her impeccable track record - "I’ve had a driver’s license for 33 years and I’ve never been in an accident", she comments - she might fit the profile, but unfortunately, she did not meet one of the prerequisites for the position, as the age limit is 40.
In her everyday life, Marga is not a driver but a doctor. She works in the Spanish government’s Ministry of Health and when the WYD chauffeur idea didn’t work out, she decided to contact the health department at WYD, to offer her help. The only thing was that as she had spent so much time working at the Ministry’s offices, she had moved away from clinical medicine, so it was decided that she should try looking into another option. Finally, it was the Secretary General who signed her on as a partner. She now works Tuesdays and Thursdays attending callers at the WYD call center.

If you live in Madrid, you can offer to decorate one of the 24 bridges over which the Pope will pass.
