The World Pulse team sends our gratitude to volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” - Elizabeth Andrew

Today marks the start of National Volunteer Week, a North American celebration that recognizes volunteer contributions and inspires people to imagine new ways of making a difference in their communities.

At World Pulse, our team of volunteers lays the foundation for our work. We rely on the passion and interest of volunteers to help us connect women's voices worldwide through the power of social media. We believe that when women are heard and connected, they will change the world.

World Pulse extends its heartfelt gratitude to the hundreds of online community volunteers from around the globe who help ensure women feel heard every day. These volunteers build community, share resources, and post uplifting comments. They welcome new online community members, translate blog posts, and mentor women leaders.

We are deeply grateful for our onsite and remote-working volunteers who assist with a variety of special projects, ranging from administrative tasks to community outreach. Our Board of Directors and Global Advisory Network provide tremendous support to World Pulse with their knowledge and expertise, contributing countless hours each year.

As we continue to grow and expand, the energy and enthusiasm of World Pulse volunteers is contagious. Would you like to join our community of volunteers? Please email [email protected] to learn more! #NVW2016

Dear Lisa,

As one of your many, many volunteers how can I describe the joy in discovering this site where you The Team have made all this possible? What we have been doing in our own areas we can now do together globally, thanks to a dedicated and brilliant Team who answer all our questions and continually strengthen our web. Volunteering for WorldPulse does take time, yes, and I appreciate your recognition of the importance of our volunteer hours. But I want you all to know that to be able to volunteer is a tremendous gift, as I endlessly keep meeting, connecting with and conspiring with so many sisters that I had only dreamed to be able to work with in my lifetime.

The wonderful photo of you all is a heart power surge. Thanks for everything you all do.

With love,

Tam
