|May the Fourth Be With You!|
In case you haven't noticed but we like to put our own little spin on things! May 4th is the unofficial National Star Wars Day. Today we celebrate May 4th, volunteering, and Star Wars, which means it's time to break out our favorite Star Wars quotes to inspire you to volunteer and help others! Check out our favorite Star Wars quotes to inspire you to volunteer!
- "On many long journeys have I gone. And waited, too, for others to return from journeys of their own. Some return; some are broken; some come back so different only their names remain." Vacationing soon? Remember this quote the next time you go on a vacation. Let this inspire you to volunteer to serve others. The volunteer vacation will change you for the better and possibly influence your will to also do good at home!
- "To answer power with power, the Jedi way this is not. In this war, a danger there is, of losing who we are." Stay true to your community by researching local volunteer opportunities that match the needs of your community.
- "To be Jedi is to face the truth, and choose. Give off light, or darkness, Padawan. Be a candle, or the night." Be the light at the end of a tunnel, especially during and after disasters. Volunteers are essential for disaster relief efforts and further provide hope when there is doubt.
- "No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try." Volunteer Managers! Often, when coordinating volunteer activities, planning the logistics of the event can be a daunting task causing one to consider giving up and potentially abandoning the activity; however, don't give up, remember that you're serving others, and remember YODA!
- "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." Do not be fearful when you choose to volunteer. Be ready for any task you may be assigned. Remember that you're serving others and you're doing good in your community.
- "Truly wonderful the mind of a child is. Youth are valuable volunteers. Make sure to incorporate youth volunteers in your service activity. Check out our "Leaders of Tomorrow Summer Volunteering Program for more information on youth volunteering."
- "Always in motion is the future." Volunteers are our future! Volunteers will be necessary and an aspect to our nation.
We hope this weekend and throughout the year, that the force be with you! Happy Volunteering!
