Happy International Volunteer Day 2013!
Today, 5 December, the team at Volunteering Australia (VA) and our friends at Beyond Bank would like to recognise, celebrate and thank all the volunteers who are making a difference to our communities, in ways big and small, every day of the year.
“This is a day to acknowledge, congratulate and celebrate all volunteers for the work they do. This is also a chance to promote the contributions volunteers make in our communities on local, national and international levels.” says, VA CEO, Brett Williamson.
“As we celebrate International Volunteer Day (IVD), we encourage everyone to continue their involvement or to get involved in communities and the voluntary sector. IVD promotes volunteering as a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and to play a part in your community.”
There is still time to thank a volunteer near you – simply download the Certificate of Appreciation template below and let them know how much you appreciate them.
To all volunteers in Australia, we see you and we thank you.
From the team at Volunteering Australia
About our partners at Beyond Bank
Beyond Bank Australia is one of the largest 100% customer-owned banks in Australia. We put people before profit, taking pride in customer service and making a positive difference in the community.
We believe strengthening our customers’ communities is good for all of us. That’s why we partner with community organisations and support community initiatives across Australia. Our philosophy is together we can create more good.
To assist our community partners we have developed banking products and services exclusively for community organisations, their employees, supporters and volunteers.
Our Community Volunteer Banking package is our way of thanking volunteers for putting the community first. It offers a wide range of banking products, including fee discounts and extra interest on term deposits and it features a reward program. Plus we’ll make an annual donation to the not-for-profit organisation where you volunteer.
