Established in 1989, National Volunteer Week is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia, and provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in our community and to say thank you.
Volunteering Australia has announced this years’ theme – Give Happy, Live Happy and we want to hear from our members about your volunteering or how a Sands volunteer has made a difference to you. We rely heavily on our amazing volunteers and this would be a wonderful opportunity to give them that extra recognition and word of thanks that they deserve.
Nominate a Sands Queensland volunteer who has made a difference to you.
The volunteer can be a past or present volunteer who has a positive impact on you.
How to nominate: include the volunteers name and details about why you have nominated them.
Share your positive volunteering experience with Sands Queensland.
Write and tell us how you volunteered and what it meant to you. Did it help you connect with your family and community? Did it have a positive impact on your grief journey?
If you have a photo to go with your story, please attach as a full size jpeg file.
Nominations and volunteering stories can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 25th.
All volunteers who submit a story and nominees will receive a special award from Sands Queensland during Volunteer Week. Stories and nominations will be shared via our members newsletter ‘Hourglass’ and Sands Queensland Facebook page.
Join us for Volunteer Week May 11th – 17th and celebrate the difference we all make.
