International Volunteer Day


Message Template

December 5 is recognized globally as International Volunteer Day. The day celebrates the theme of solidarity through volunteering — the power of our collective drive to create positive change through volunteerism.

Every day, volunteers dedicate their time and effort to ensure the inclusion of those often left behind. Even the smallest act can make a huge impact — serving food at a shelter, donating gently used coats and gloves, or volunteering to walk a dog at an animal shelter. In the comments of this post, please post your ideas for volunteering or giving back to help inspire others at Firstup. Happy International Volunteer Day.

Things to consider:

  • Be sure to include your company’s volunteer time-off and matching policies.
  • Include resources with local places to volunteer as a team/company. Be considerate of global locations.
  • If there are any events that you want employees to attend, be sure to include them in the communication.
