Happy Volunteer Recognition Day you Keengs and Kweens!
Winter is Coming…
Don’t worry there are no Game Of Thrones spoilers here, but today happens to be Volunteer Recognition Day. To show our appreciation, we would like to dedicate this post to you. Yes YOU!
Thank YOU for sacrificing your time, resources and energy to give back to someone in need. As a result, we feel that volunteers are the Keengs and Kweens of our society, they should be wearing their crowns with pride.
YOU are an inspiration, please keep on shining your bright light. As the weather gets colder, volunteers become more of a demand. If we all lend a helping hand we make lighter work and the world becomes a better, happier and warmer place.
We know that sometimes you feel that you do not get the recognition or appreciation YOU deserve… We know that making the sacrifices that you do is not always as easy as you make it look. It is for that reason that we would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You! So please look back on this post and know we notice and know just how much YOU matter.
Some Positives of Volunteering:
Volunteering can lead to job opportunities that you never would have heard of otherwise.
You will meet new like-minded people. Being part of such a considerate community, is a constant source of motivation in itself. Never forget the importance of showing that you care! You could even set yourself the goal to get as many types of volunteering projects on your list as possible. Making sure they are always causes you’re keen about, of course!
Volunteering can help improve your mental health by giving you feelings of gratitude for what you have in your own life. This new perspective can help you see things more clearly and feel inspired too. That’s why people that are seeking help with mental health issues are often advised to volunteer.
Volunteering can inspire and develop your creative ideas for new ways to volunteer! Sometimes the best thing you can do is to sign up to a project you think sounds interesting, and then use this as the base for the rest of the work you do later in life. The more you learn about charities and organisations, the better!
