Chooseday 21st May - Choose to celebrate National Volunteer Week!

Good Morning,

🎉 Happy National Volunteer Week! 🎉 Let's choose to celebrate this incredible week.

Today marks the start of a week dedicated to celebrating the incredible impact of volunteering, and here at GoodCompany, we couldn't be prouder. With over 275,000 hours volunteered through our platform, we've seen firsthand the power of giving back. 🤝

🐾🌳 Did you know that employee volunteering appears more common among Animal Welfare, Environment, Disability, and Community Services/Welfare/Homelessness organizations? (Volunteering Australia, 2024). It's no wonder, considering the benefits it brings. One in five people (20.8%) reported undertaking volunteering to learn new skills or gain work experience.

It's inspiring to see so many businesses supporting their employees in making a positive difference, with 78% of companies supporting a volunteering program! (Volunteering Australia, 2024).

Volunteering for non-profit organizations was estimated to have an imputed value of $17.3 billion 💰, showcasing its immense economic and social impact.

Furthermore, 82% of volunteers were delighted, pleased, or mostly satisfied with their lives, compared to 75% of non-volunteers. This highlights the personal fulfillment and satisfaction that volunteering can bring. 😊

Our team experiences this every day as volunteering brings colleagues together, strengthens bonds, and makes a real difference.

At GoodCompany, we support over 1,600 charities, so there truly is something for everyone. Whether you're passionate about the environment, education, health, or community support, there's a cause that needs your unique skills and enthusiasm. 🌍📚❤️

This National Volunteer Week, let's celebrate our amazing volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to making the world a better place. And let's encourage our friends, family, and colleagues to join in and discover the joy and fulfillment that comes with volunteering. 🙌
