Honor your volunteers
Good Deeds Day is a great celebration for organizations and nonprofits that work with volunteers year-round. The volunteers are, in a lot of cases, the blood that runs through the veins of the organization and keeps its heart pumping, so it’s important to give them the thanks they deserve. This is why a lot of non-profit organizations worldwide choose to host an event for their volunteers this April 15. You could give out volunteer certificates, or maybe invite the population you are helping in your organization – anything that will make your volunteers feel how impactful the work they’re doing is!
