International Volunteers Day is observed globally on December 5th each year. The date offers a chance to acknowledge and celebrate the remarkable achievements of volunteers and to reflect on the impact of volunteerism on society.
This year, IVD is marked by recognising the power of collective action: if everyone did.
If everyone volunteered, the world would be a better place.
Participating in International Volunteers Day is an excellent way to recognize and support the efforts of volunteers in your community. Here are some ways to get involved:
Thank a Volunteer: Take the time to express gratitude to your volunteers. A simple “thank you” can go a long way in acknowledging their efforts.
Arrange a Volunteer Event: Many communities organize events and activities on International Volunteers Day to showcase the work of their volunteers.
Share Volunteer Stories: Use social media and other platforms to share inspiring stories of how your volunteers make a difference. Encourage others to get involved.
