International Volunteer Day (IVD) is held each year on 5 December and is the great chance for us to celebrate the efforts of our wonderful online community volunteers.  We have 15 community champions who share their time and experience to support us all here on the community and we have 18 advisors, some of them are Scope staff and some are volunteers who share their expertise and help us all so much

2017 Theme: Volunteers Act First. Here. Everywhere.

IVD 2017’s theme #VolunteersActFirst. Here. Everywhere. recognizes the contributions of volunteers as first responders in times of crisis. Volunteers are present, all around us, answering calls in times of need, helping save lives today, and supporting those who want to continue living their lives with dignity tomorrow.  This year, IVD promotes the contributions of such volunteers at the local, national and international level.

Thank you to our community champions: @Jgeek @Blue Frog @htlcy @speedincaesar @mossycow @Stayce @iza @CaderMac @Geoark @gnmeads @steve51 @Roland @BeccaShark123 @CockneyRebel and @MJDean

    I do love how strong the community spirit is on here.  It's inspiring and lovely to see people investing so much time and effort into supporting each other. 
    However life plays out, I do hope I can help contribute to the amazing work that you are doing here.  
    I only recently found out about this site via a friend, but would love to be involved more on a voluntary basis at the very least.
