National Volunteer Week (April 6-12, 2014) is a time to recognize, celebrate and thank Canada’s 13.3 million volunteers.
We at Good Learning Anywhere would like to take a moment to send out a HUGE thank to our amazing volunteer online instructor, James Stone!
To Be a Volunteer
To be a volunteer, it takes…
Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others
Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own
Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel
Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better
Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might
Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through
You’ve shown these qualities and so much more, so thank you for all that you do.
If you know a volunteer you would like to thank, there’s a very cool way to do that by calling the VOLUNT-HEAR HOTLINE. You can leave a brief and powerful thank you message as well as listen to touching and inspiring messages left by others across the nation!
Because volunteer work speaks volumes.
