I think maybe a better definition would be "work you choose to do which you don't get paid for", because I don't think most people would consider housework 'volunteering', for example. I guess technically one does choose whether or not they do their housework, but I can't think of a better way of wording it that how I did.
Unpaid work done for the benefit of people you don’t personally know, maybe? If you go over and help your sister clean her house and don’t expect payment, most people wouldn’t consider that volunteer work either.
