International Volunteer Day

Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to every volunteer who are actively pushing themselves for betterment of others and wish them a very happy International Volunteer Day. 

International Volunteer Day was designed to inspire everyone to actively participate and contribute to development at local and international levels. The day was first introduced by United Nation General Assembly on 17 December 1987, since then every year on 5th December UN and other social organizations celebrates this day to value the deeds of every volunteer throughout the world. Besides that, the day also provides a platform for volunteering organizations to work with government agencies, private organizations and non-government organizations. 

This year the day will not only celebrate voluntarism but will also commemorate all the volunteering activities that are being carried out on a global scale. Volunteering is one of the primary activities that teaches us the lesson of humanity, and reminds us that helping others is not the last thing to do. Organizations like Red Cross, Scout have millions of people who are working selflessly for betterment of other people. 

So, what are you going to do on this International Volunteer Day? The day lies on Saturday, instead of sitting on your couch and enjoying your favorite channel do something meaningful to commemorate this day.
