Volunteer Scotland Call To Action!

via Volunteer Scotland's facebook page, but applicable the world over...

Did you know that the main reason people give for never volunteering is nobody asked them? So, as part of the European Year of the Volunteer 2011, the 'Just Ask' campaign has been launched.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to ask someone else to volunteer.
'You dancin? We're askin!'
 Just Ask Campaign
We know that the most effective way to recruit volunteers is to ask them and this is what the EYV2011 Scottish Alliance wants you to do through the Just Ask Campaign - just ask people to volunteer. We have free postcards available for you to use and we will be setting up a Facebook and Twitter campaign which will run until December 2011 to encourage people to Just Ask.

If you would like some postcards to be sent to you please email eyv2011@vds.org.uk with how many you need and your postal address.

We have also created certificates for you to download to welcome new volunteers to your organisation and to recognise existing volunteers who have been with you for some time.
