International Volunteer Day (5 December 2018)


5 December is the International Volunteer Day (IVD) proclaimed by the United Nations to pay tribute to volunteers worldwide and to inspire more people to volunteer.

AVS has started celebrating IVD since 1992 to recognize volunteer contribution and appeal the public to volunteer.

“Go Volunteering!” is the slogan this year.  We have put forward 101 Ways of Volunteering on the event website and appeal the public to volunteer in any form and to promote the spirit of volunteerism as part of our life.  People are encouraged to share their volunteer stories by text, picture or video via the social media platforms.

As one of the member organizations of Hong Kong Council of Volunteering, HKIP members are encouraged to volunteer in any form on 5 December and to share your volunteer stories and photos on social media platforms and HashTag #125IVD.
