World volunteers day
5 December all over the world celebrate the day of volunteers. On this day we should thank all those people who donated work and help people.
The full name of this holiday is international volunteer day for economic and social development. Invited him to enter the UN General Assembly a long time ago - in 1985. Since then, the festival has received its official name and international status.
By introducing this day the UN reminded all world States that the community should know about considerable contribution of volunteers in all spheres of life. The organization hoped that the more people learn about the volunteer service and its importance, the more volunteers will join their ranks.
Volunteers working for the benefit of society, without asking anything in return, which is another reason why they received their own holiday. Yet few will agree free to do a lot of work, and volunteers unselfishly clean streets, distribute brochures for social campaigns, working with interpreters at large sporting events, help in hospitals, nursing homes, orphanages, and much, much more. A lot of work on the proportion of volunteers is necessary for elimination of consequences of natural disasters.
In the universal Declaration of volunteers said that volunteers have the right to give their time, energy and talent collective and individual actions, not expecting this reward. Selfless actions in the modern world ’ s rare, but they are so necessary. So December 5, should not only wish good luck and happiness to all the volunteers, but also to think about our own selfless acts. You can start with small – translate across the road an old woman, or feed a homeless dog.
