Thanks A Million
National Volunteer Week 13 19 May 2013
National Volunteer Week (NVW2013) is Australias largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism. Today there are over 6 million (ABS 2010b) people volunteering annually in Australia, representing 36% of the adult population. Volunteering Australia along with its state and territory network recognises the valuable contribution each individual provides by offering their time, skills and passion, continuing to demonstrate Australias proud culture of giving.
This year using a variety of communication channels the NVW2013 campaign will recognise the contribution of over 6 million volunteers who offer their time and dedication to the communities we live in.
To make this NVW20136 a great success we need your help to spread the word!
From 13 - 19 May 2013 we will be asking you to visit our Facebook (www.facebook.com/volunteeringaus) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/VolunteeringAus) #NVW2013) pages and post your own messages of thanks. These can be in the form of pictures (you can even download some fun signs from our website to use in your photos), videos and stories.
If you know a volunteer, or a volunteer team who deserves a recognition, we'd love to hear from you.
Messgae from Hon. Mark Butler - Minister of Social Inclusion
