WHY SHOULD WE CELEBRATE VOLUNTEER CONTRIBUTION?
Because everybody’s doing it.
Amazingly 4 out of 5 Tasmanians in the last year (Volunteering Tasmania stats Feb 2014-2015) volunteered in some capacity. That’s a whopping 411000 people in Tasmania who did something to help someone else in the last year. Aren’t we awesome?
The tremendous thing is how this adds value to the wonderful place we call home. According to Vounteering Tasmania, that’s about 7.1million hours worth of value just by lending a hand. My gosh Tasmania, you are truly awesome.
The people that volunteer their time and energy to look after their environment (think local park, beach, or favourite space) are part of this number.
