International Volunteer Managers Day
Volunteer coordinators and managers make it their duty to thank, support, guide and appreciate volunteers all year long. I have just learned that November 5th, is International Volunteer Managers Day. Who knew that Hallmark’s reach extended to the world of volunteers? I’m not certain that there are actually greeting cards for the occasion (yet) but it is a nice chance for all volunteers to pay it forward and make sure they know their coordinator/managers hard work does not go unnoticed!
Even though the day has passed, it will be a nice gesture to take the time to give a hug, write an email, or offer a high five your favorite manager of volunteers to celebrate their (belated) special day. There are so many volunteer opportunities around today that it is very likely that you are one yourself. If you are a volunteer, I recommend you take some time to thank your volunteer manager today – and maybe next year we’ll even have a greeting card ready!
