The fifth of December is The International Volunteer Day (IVD) proclaimed by the United Nations to pay tribute to volunteers worldwide, and to motivate more people to volunteer.
AVS launched the first IVD Hong Kong Celebrations in 1992 to appeal the public to volunteer and recognize the contribution of volunteerism. This year, AVS launches the motto “Go Volunteering” to encourage people / organization to instill volunteerism into their life.
Activities of IVD 2016 include:
“125 IVD Go Volunteering” is to mark the Day by appealing the public to take volunteer actions in any form from 5 to 18 December 2016. 101 Ways of Volunteering are available on the event website and various social media as reference. You / organization are encouraged to share your and others' volunteer stories by text, pictures or video via their social media platforms and tag #125 IVD.
To celebrate the day, AVS organizes “Share-to-Care” Volunteer Campaign on 11 December 2016, hoping to mobilize 1,000 volunteers to distribute 2,000 caring packs to needy and underprivileged families.
You are welcome to make donations for Caring Pack by 30 December 2016. Caring packs are available in all Chinese Vanguard Supermarkets for charity sales from 1 to 30 November 2016. For details, please refers to the campaign website.
