Volunteers are the core of any charity; ultimately you could save a life by becoming one. Here at Help 4 Kids we would be nothing without our hard-working team of volunteers. Becoming a volunteer takes dedication but any time spared is time put towards a good cause. With the primary focus of a charity being raising funds for others, it is important to have people who are willing to give up their free time to ensure all money raised goes directly to root of the cause. There are many ways you can help through charity volunteering, and ultimately you could save a life.
Types of Volunteers
If you find yourself looking for something to do on a regular basis during the week, why not sign up to be a regular volunteer? Regular charity volunteering is not only a great way to give back to those who need it, but a great way to make friends, meet people and keep your mind active. Volunteering is a perfect pastime for people who may be working part time, retirees, students, and those looking to enter the workforce. When deciding to volunteer, make sure the charity’s values match with what you want to achieve. Sign up to a charity you are really passionate about to ensure both you and the charity get the most out of your time.
At Help 4 Kids, there are many different roles you can take up as a regular volunteer. Tell us what your skills are and what you like to do and we can find a job for you. Help is always needed for tasks big and small, from making and taking phone calls, hanging up flyers and distributing collection buckets, to organising accounts, graphic design, and working on social media and marketing. Even just a couple of hours a week can help us save a life.
Other types of volunteering include mass one-off volunteers who are often engaged to help with fundraising events. Volunteering at a charity event can be a great opportunity for those leading busy lives who still want to do something to help others. At Help 4 Kids we welcome volunteers with all different availability. As a one-off volunteer you can get involved in our annual collection day by taking out a Help 4 Kids collection bucket in your local community, or you could even host your own fundraiser. There are options for everyone to get involved and we welcome the support.
According to The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) more than six million Australians give up their time to volunteer for charity every year. This staggering number shows just how great our nation is. Why not join in and give back to our great community? Contact Help 4 Kids today to save lives tomorrow.
