National Volunteer Week 2008

Having even a small part in accomplishing the work that VoicePrint does makes volunteering so worthwhile, says long-time VoicePrint volunteer Don Logan

Canada is blessed with legions of dedicated volunteers who selflessly donate their time and talents in a cause that unites us all: making people's lives better.

At VoicePrint more than 800 volunteer readers help us to break the information barrier and make media accessible to the 5 million Canadians who can't independently access printed materials, such as current newspapers and magazines.

So, of course, we want to salute their valuable role at our pioneering non-profit broadcast service. But we also want our salute to the great spirit of volunteerism to include the voices of committed Canadian volunteers from other non-profit organizations.

To mark National Volunteer Week 2008, which runs from April 27 to May 3, VoicePrint is launching:

  • A special series of audio mini-profiles we're calling "60 Seconds With A VoicePrint Volunteer" on which our contributors will talk candidly about the reasons why they volunteer and the personal enrichment that flows from giving of yourself. You can hear them on VoicePrint's national service and further down this page (which also includes photos of several of them).

  • A special series of audio mini-profiles we're calling "60 Seconds With A Canadian Volunteer," which will feature volunteers from other non-profit organizations. VoicePrint invites you to celebrate the volunteers that inspire you and others in your organization with an audio mini-profile to be aired three times on our national service, which goes into 8 million Canadian homes. Find out how by viewing our Sales Sheet (PDF).

Our goal is to attract as many volunteer voices as possible - collectively they will become a chorus singing the praises of giving unto others to benefit the community and the country.

VoicePrint has also created a special programming line-up that includes (all times Eastern):

  • An interview with the Honourable Michael Chan, MPP, on the Ontario Volunteer Service Awards (April 27 at 4:30 p.m.) Listen to Michael Chan, MPP (mp3).

  • An interview with Craig Kielburger, a child-rights advocate, Order of Canada-award recipient, author and more. His most recent book, Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World, is co-authored with his brother, Marc Kielburger, and is a New York Times bestseller. This inspirational volume empowers people of all ages to live the "Me to We" philosophy of volunteerism, service to others and social involvement (May 3 at 2 p.m., repeated at 8 p.m.) Listen to Craig Kielburger (mp3).
