National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia's biggest annual celebration of volunteering and it's finally here!
This Chooseday, choose to shout out the volunteers in your circle. Whether that be in your community, your workplace or your favorite non-profit organization, it's time to give these superheroes an applause.
This week, from 15th to 21st May 2023, we celebrate The Change Makers, the selfless volunteers who make a world of difference to our community, our organizations and our country.
Did you know? In Australia alone, over 5.8 million people generously volunteer their time each year, contributing an astounding $290 billion to the economy. And 96% of Australian workers believe that volunteering has a positive impact on their overall happiness. (GoodCompany, 2018).
"National Volunteer Week 2023 is a celebration of our power to drive change and ensure volunteering is inclusive of all members of the Australian community" (Volunteering Australia, 2023).
If you have a special Change Maker in your life, we encourage you to shout out to them this week and show your appreciation for their generosity, kindness and selflessness.
After all, how do we change the world? One small act of random kindness at a time.
When we volunteer, or choose to help or be kind to others, we in turn feel good about ourselves. So, this week, we invite you to embrace acts of kindness and reap the benefits it will give.
Join us in applauding all the superstar volunteers that make the world a better place! Every act of kindness counts toward a happier, healthier, thriving world.
So, what can you do to make a difference? How can your company step up to the challenge and make a lasting impact in your community?
With over 1,800 charities to choose from on GoodCompany, you can be The Change Maker today and volunteer, donate or fundraise for a charity closest to your heart.
Thank you for choosing to do good this Chooseday and Happy National Volunteer Week!
the GoodCompany team.
