Day of Volunteering

Have you ever had the chance  privilege to volunteer?? If you have then more than likely you may be like me and enjoyed yourself very much. I believe that each time I volunteer I learn. It is a great time to get together with others that support the same as you do. I also want to say thank you and invite you to celebrate today as it is International Volunteer day.



Each year on December 5th volunteers every where can take a good pat on the back. Most volunteers I personally know will tell they volunteer because they care. The United Nations in 1985 designated December 5th to be a day to thank those that volunteer through International Volunteer Day. This day is awesome for sharing opportunities for volunteers and organizations alike. Raising awareness of needs faced by organizations, to say thank-you to those that volunteer

All cultures welcome volunteers. Language and religious beliefs do not stop the need for volunteers. Each year hundreds of millions of people volunteer time and skills to help make world a better place. Volunteers help to make the lives of others better but volunteers often improve their own lives as well by gaining a sense of belonging to a community.

Looking for somewhere to volunteer?? Chances are all around from the school, hospitals, and more. Here is a list of ideas

  • if you like animals then volunteer in an animal shelter
  • enjoy history?? Then the national park service may be able to use you. Park volunteers are more than cleaning up as many historical locations are in need of role actors and guides as well
  • One area that benefits from volunteers are food pantries. I have spent time volunteering at food pantries and soup kitchens you would be surprised if you saw all the faces that come in needing help. 
  • If you enjoy books and reading then why not check for volunteer jobs at your local library. 
  • If you have a special talent that you would like to share?? Visit retirement homes and let them know that you would be interested in volunteering. 
Take a look around somewhere you will find the perfect opportunity for you.
