More About Volunteer Recognition Day


Volunteer Recognition Day is the annual celebration of those who selflessly benefit the lives of others. By providing a helping hand to those in need, humans and animals alike, we are all naturally working towards making the world a better place.

Every single one of us has been benefited from the work of a volunteer and Volunteer Recognition Day acknowledges the beauty of this phenomenon. Every direction we turn, we can do something outside of our daily list of requirements. As you go about your day, honor and thank those who go to the extra mile.

High profile celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Bono have made a name beyond the stage for their work with various foundations. Although most of us are not millionaires, their work goes to show that anyone can get their hands dirty, step out of their comfort zone and lend a hand to those in need.

A lot of times volunteering comes down finding a cause that moves you. For some people, taking care of animals influences them, whereas the human condition calls to others requiring they meet the needs of a few or many in their community or far and wide. With so many opportunities to offer love and support to those who won’t take it for granted, it’s hard not to want to get involved!

Take a moment to thank a volunteer in your life.

Evaluate your current schedule and see where you can fit in time for volunteering. Pick a cause you’re passionate about! Whether it’s donating your money or often even more importantly, your time, there’s always something to be done. Don't forget, your skills are valuable to organizations, too. Many volunteer organizations provide services to people who would otherwise go without if it weren't for volunteers. So think of your specific skill set and consider who it might benefit if times are tough.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

tax services to those who've fallen on hard times
wig styling for someone undergoing chemo
dental services for those who cannot afford dental insurance
yard care for elderly or disabled
sew quilts, weighted blankets, post-mastectomy drain bulb covers, and many other projects to support those in need
