International Volunteer Day (IVD) – 5 December

Volunteer means to do charitable or helpful work without pay, or to perform or offer to perform a service of one’s own free will. In nutshell, what we want to do with our free will and not expecting any money or any payment in any kind. Today is International Volunteer Day.

International Volunteer Day (IVD) – (December 5) is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985.

The declared aim of this activity is to thank the volunteers for their efforts and increase public awareness on their contribution to society. The day is celebrated in majority countries of the world.

The International Volunteer Day is marked by many non-governmental organizations, including Red Cross, scouts and others. It is also marked and supported by United Nations Volunteers.

Volunteers, this is your moment.  Celebrate International Volunteer Day (IVD) 2011! IVD offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions – at local, national and international levels – to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

I volunteer myself with my free will for one hour every week for homeopathic students.

Volunteer yourself for the cause you support on this planet.

Enjoy this healthy and wonderful planet in our universe 🙂
