How can I volunteer with #TeamOrange?
There are many of ways to getting involved and volunteer with #TeamOrange. Whether it’s volunteering at events, hosting a community fundraiser, or supporting our community partners. It all depends on how much time you can give, and how you want to help!
Remember, even a small change can make a BIG DIFFERENCE.
There are all sorts of things you could do once you’re in #TeamOrange – you could take on big challenges, help out at events, host your own activities or even join us on an overseas project. It all depends on how much time you can give and how you want to help.
#TeamOrange volunteers have jumped out of planes, crazy bungee jumps and a host of other fun activities, hosted all sorts of dinners and fun days, organised packing days and prepared over 5000 fresh cooked meals, and much more! Some of our volunteers have even planned to join us on a trip overseas to see our aid work in progress.
Your opportunity to make a BIG DIFFERENCE
Hi, my name is Maisha and this International Volunteer Day, I wanted to share my story of how I joined Penny Appeal Australia’s #Team Orange.
As someone who was constantly involved in community fundraiser events during my high school years, I found myself struggling to find the same opportunity, once I left school. I explored different volunteer opportunities but they didn’t give me the same spark and support that my local high school did and I didn’t experience the same enjoyment in community fundraising that I did while at school.
For me raising funds needs to be done whilst having fun.
Just as I was about to call it quits, a friend (after hearing my concerns) encouraged me to join #Team Orange. That was one of the best decisions I have made.
The passion and energy that #Team Orange radiates is unmatched. #Team Orange has given me the opportunity to meet volunteers from all walks of life, each as passionate as the next and all wanting to make a difference. Whether it involved preparing food packages for refugees or travelling 5 hours to meet rural communities in NSW, their dedication and hard work is unlike anything I’ve seen elsewhere.
As a #Team Orange volunteer and now a Volunteer Coordinator, I strive to carry this energy to help others in need!
This International Volunteer Day, let’s celebrate #Team Orange for always going that extra mile to make a big difference!
We’re passionate about helping the poor & needy and do all we can to transform lives worldwide. However you get involved, through one of our organised challenges, helping at an event or doing your own thing, you will make a big difference to the lives of vulnerable people around the world.
