5 of December, The International Volunteer Day

By: Amaia

Last week, on the 5th of December, we celebrated the International Volunteer Day. The Youth Center of Kalamata organized an exhibition in collaboration with volunteers located in different parts of the world.

Volunteering is an activity that involves the conviction that small acts can generate change.  Volunteers believe that unity is strength. We believe that by sharing with others and committing to the community can set the foundations to make a difference in our surroundings. Like a ballet company or a philharmonic orchestra were the coordination of a team generates emotions and impacts in its audience.

As a volunteer you let yourself to be moved by what you believe to make it visible with your hands
Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.  ~Elizabeth Andrew

Every action in our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.  ~Edwin Hubbel Chapin
