In fact, volunteering can be a great way to develop skills, learn more about career options, make friends, garner new professional contacts, get exercise, spend time outdoors/with animals/with kids, or even just shake up your routine.
Yet volunteers rarely speak of the benefits of volunteering to themselves — maybe it feels a bit too self-centered, or too far from the altruistic vision of the selfless volunteer.
But who says that doing good and enjoying yourself while meeting your own personal/professional goals can't happen at the same time?
If in the process of meeting your personal and professional goals, you are also serving as an effective volunteer, helping to meet the goals of your particular volunteer project or role, and/or helping to move Speak Into the Light mission forward, it's a win-win situation.
In addition to professional networking, volunteering can be a fun, meaningful way to make new friends. New to the community? Looking to branch out socially? Simply looking for something to do with new people? Volunteer and get to know others who care about the same issues that you do.
Have an impact: Last but most certainly not least, volunteering is one of the best ways we know of to make a difference in your community. Whatever your passion, however you get involved, volunteering offers a way to have a real and lasting impact on the world.
Dear: Friends of Speak Into the light,
I'm sure you are aware of the important role that Speak into the Light plays in helping people whose lives are impacted by our mission. This year we have had an increase volume of recipients that’s in need of our services. This important work is supported largely by the support of generous donors, which will allow Speak into the Light to continue providing much needed services to those in our community who are in need of assistance. Without the continued support of generous donors like you, these needs will likely go unmet.
In order to continue making a difference in the lives of individuals affected by the work of Speak Into The Light, it is vital for this year and the upcoming years to be a success. Can we count on you to make a donation to this important cause? By making a tax deductible donation to our capital campaign, you'll be directly contributing to people struggling to cope with the daily struggle of everyday life. Additionally, you'll be recognized for your generosity as a capital campaign supporter on our website.
Speak into the Light is depending on your assistance and generosity. Please donate today and pledge your support. Be assured that your contribution will be put to good use to provide help to individuals in need of assistance right here in our community. Thank you for your consideration and continued support.
