This is fiction.  Everyone who volunteers gets a return on their
investment; without it, they wouldn't volunteer.  That "return"
may not be in some sort of traditional form like cash, goods, or
services; but if the volunteer absolutely truly got nothing out
of it -- no sense of satisfaction, no gladness at having been
able to help another, absolutely nothing -- then there is nothing
to drive the volunteer towards that activity as opposed to another.
