#GlobalApplause for International Volunteer Day
5 December 2016
UN Volunteers are orchestrating a round of #GlobalApplause to recognise all volunteers everywhere and the contribution they make. In "giving volunteers a hand", they also encourage anyone who has not yet volunteered to join in and take part!
Volunteers are committed advocates of making the world a better place. From local community volunteers to those on the frontline of natural disasters, volunteers are quintessential to humanity – the billion volunteers globally bring communities together. And the world is not only changed by people who share the volunteer spirit, volunteers, showing up and stepping up, become global citizens who highlight our common human future on this planet.

We fully support this campaign and the sentiments expressed. Use the hashtag #GlobalApplause to give volunteers much-deserved thanks.
