Woo hoo... it's National Volunteers Week!

May 08, 2017

Did you know:

  • that just a few hours of volunteer work makes a difference in happiness and mood? 
  • that the number of volunteers in Australia has doubled from 1995 (3.2 million) to 2010 (6.1 million)?
  • that volunteers are happier, healthier and sleep better than those who don't volunteer?
It's National Volunteer Week from 8 to 14 May, and this year it's all about "Give Happy, Live Happy". 

Help us make Australia the happiest place on earth by volunteering today! Whether it’s one hour of your time or an ongoing commitment, it’s easy to share your skills and interests to give happy and live happy.
