The results of this study reveal that the Ketimbang Ngemis Bandung volunteers can recognize and appreciate all gifts received from outside themselves, such as always grateful and those who have helped them. It can be seen from those who have their own stories that give rise to gratitude who wish to do something for the good that they have got.
