Showcase Your Value as a Volunteer - Community, Causes and Commitments

Do you often make time to serve as a volunteer? To be honest, in my opinion, volunteers are so often true VIPs. First and foremost, taking the opportunity to give back within the community or causes you choose to support through volunteerism is definitely a mutually beneficial relationship. While you're generously lending a helping hand, the personal experiences you, in turn gain are valuable beyond measure. Whether a novice or a pro, showcase your value as a volunteer with not-for-profit organizations, like New York's own Family-to-Family for community, causes, and commitments.

This editorial campaign is an awareness collaboration in partnership with Family-to-Family on a pro-bono basis.

Community, Causes and Commitments

The infectious power of kindness evokes an almost magical atmosphere. We're partnering with the charitable endeavors of not-for-profit organization, Family-to-Family. Extending their platform for kindness, Family-to-Family actively gives back to communities through the success of their child literacy projects, corporate and individual donations, family-in-need sponsorship, and many supportive giving projects. Envisioning families able to share more resources, helping the lives of families with less resources is the spirit of generosity fueling Family-to-Family's dynamic work.

All Family-to-Family 
projects reflect their core values-

• To connect those with enough to share, to those with profoundly less, through ‘out of the box’ compassionate giving projects.

• To engage children and families in ongoing, hands-on giving experiences.

• To inspire children and adults to be givers throughout their lives.

Get Involved Behind-the-Scenes

Here's the secret to finding just the right volunteer hands-on opportunity for super events, research Family-to-Family online to search for hands-on volunteer opportunities and donation requests that match your lifestyle. Often there will be an event list, calling for interested individuals and groups to apply for volunteer positions prior to the day of the event.

Many other organizations are also looking for dedicated volunteers to assist in the management of festivals, fundraisers, and a vast array of other large and smaller scale events. Added perks of volunteering for charitable organizations often include backstage access to talent, complimentary meals, training, free or discounted perks, and impressive collection of potentials for networking.

Expand Your Reach of Kindness

Many families right here throughout the United States know the day-to-day struggles of living in hunger, poverty, and homelessness. Family-to-Family currently works across America to feed and uplift thousands of families through family sponsorships. Providing an expanding volunteer project profile, Family-to-Family includes meeting the needs of disaster relief, Veteran outreach, literacy development, and many other activities and causes.

For an different experience, pack up your passport to bring your valuable resources to make a difference around the world. Stipends are available from some organizations for qualified volunteers interested in offering support abroad. While these are unpaid positions, compensation allowances are provided for travel and living expenses, research all of the financial offerings and obligations you'll need to know before you go. Check with previous volunteers for verifiable references of the organization's reputation for coordinating volunteers with travel experiences overseas.
