Invitation to the International Volunteer Day in Bonn

November 22, 2004.  

Dear Friend,


The Staff of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme in Bonn cordially invite you, your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to join us in celebrating International Volunteer Day (IVD) on Sunday, 5 December 2004.


To celebrate IVD in Bonn, UNV together with the City of Bonn are organazing a:


Volunteer Walk on 5 December 2004

Starting at 15:00 at the Bonn Altes Rathaus, Marktplatz


Participate in this 3 km leisurely walk to celebrate the work of volunteers and help us raise funds to support a project for street children in La Paz, Bolivia; La Paz is a partner city of the City of Bonn. All donations collected will support the project.


Refreshments will be served after the walk, which ends at the Altes Rathaus.


Participation in the walk is free, but we encourage you to collect donations for the project. To help you approach sponsors, we attach ten sponsor sign-up sheets and donation forms. Please bring your completed form and money raised to the Volunteer Walk Committee booth in the Altes Rathaus on 5 December. You are kindly requested to arrive at 14:30 hrs.


Your support in this walk will be a memorable one. Strengthen the bonds between volunteers like you, across the world and right here in the City of Bonn!


IVD was designated as International Volunteer day for Social and Economic Development by the United Nations in 1985, to highlight and celebrate the important contributions to society brought forward by millions of volunteers. People around the world participate in IVD by organizing a variety of events and activities to honour volunteers and stimulate a greater awareness of their contribution to global development.


The UN Volunteers programme works with governments, civil society and the privat sector in promoting volunteerism for development.


If you have any questions, please contact us via e-mail at: or call Stefanie Danneman at: 0228-815-2219.


Yours truly,


The IVD Celebrations Committee @ UN Volunteers
