International Volunteer Day 2012
International Volunteer Day is tomorrow, December 5th.
“The main focus of IVD 2012 is awareness of and recognition for volunteers and volunteer organizations. The purpose is to recognize this commitment, to inform people about the impact of volunteering on peace and sustainable development, and to applaud volunteers for their dedication and impact. ” – The UN
In honor of the day, we want to know – what is the craziest, most off-the-wall and unplanned experience that has happened to you while volunteering?
Tell us about your experience with a picture and a written description (100 words or less, please!) and we will offer a $100 scholarship towards a volunteer trip to a randomly-selected winner.
Entries may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may enter anytime now through noon on Wednesday, December 5th, and we will post the winning entry by the end of the day.
Good luck, volunteers!
