International Volunteer Appreciation Day

December 5th is International Volunteer Appreciation Day (IVD). What does this day mean to you? How are you celebrating it with your Volunteer team?

As it turned out, but the time IVD rolled around my recognition budget was non-existent. Thinking outside the box was a must. I was lucky to be able to utilize some of my organization’s internal resources to create some great bookmarks that were then sent out with our bi-annual newsletter.

Next year I’d like to make this day more of a priority, not just within my Volunteer Program but within the organization I work for. I came upon this resource a little bit late, but next year I’ll be using the resources on the World Volunteer website. I’m not a big fan of their orange branding, but you can’t beat their downloadable presentations and posters!
