It’s December 5th! “So what? It’s just another Monday you may be thinking to yourself.” Think again! December 5th is International Volunteer Day! What is this International Volunteer Day and why does it even matter, every day should be a volunteer day!

December 5th is different from any other day that you volunteer because it allows volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make their contributions visible through the Millennium Development Goals.Are you still not convinced that this Monday is different from any other Monday? The aim of this day is to promote the importance of volunteering and to engage as many volunteers as possible to respond to key volunteering issues. Thanks to the United Nations Volunteers this day is made possible! The United Nations Volunteers have made this day possible through discussion-point videos, a photo competition, and social media. They hope to collect pictures of volunteers all across the world to be featured on their website as a way to show the world lighted up with volunteers!

Have you been convinced yet this day is important? Do you want your picture to be featured in the United Nations Volunteer mosaic?
