The Big Shout-out is a new campaign for June, encouraging everyone to give a shout-out to volunteers.

New Zealand is a nation of volunteers – more than a million of us volunteer, giving our time and energy to make a difference in our communities. Our vision is for volunteering to be valued and celebrated as a vital part of society.

It’s time to recognise and thank volunteers – give them a shout-out on social media or shout them morning tea!

He wā pīataata – Time to shine

You are invited to show you appreciate your volunteer stars this National Volunteer Week. Make or print a star image, and take a photo with you holding the star.

Upload your star photo to social media during National Volunteer Week and share using the hashtags #NVW2023 and #timetoshine. Give a shout-out to your volunteer stars.

We will be sharing your stars and messages throughout the week so that volunteers can see how valued they are.
