International Volunteer Day

International Volunteer Day

International Volunteer Day is celebrated every year on December 5th. The day was established by the United Nations in 1985 to recognize the contribution of volunteers around the world. Today, International Volunteer Day is an opportunity to celebrate the power of volunteering and its ability to make a difference in our communities. Volunteering has been shown to have a positive impact on emotional wellbeing as it can provide a sense of purpose and satisfaction. It can also help to build self-confidence and social skills. By giving our time and energy to help others, we can make a real difference in the world. There are many ways to celebrate International Volunteer Day, but one of the best ways is to simply volunteer your time to a worthy cause. Whether you’re helping to clean up your local park or volunteering at a soup kitchen, you’ll be making a positive impact on your community. And who knows? You might just find that volunteering brings you some much-needed happiness during this holiday season.

Why not make a difference this International Volunteer Day by giving your time to help others and spreading awareness using our resources? You could be the one who changes someone’s life for the better!
