This nonprofit cares for disadvantaged young people across the globe. Since the pandemic's emergence, many children have been experiencing anxiety and stress over isolation, health risks, and the general state of the world. To help bring joy to their day-to-day lives and ensure they are well enough to continue their education, the nonprofit has launched programs that allow people from all over the world demonstrate their support.
Volunteers like you and your coworkers can get involved in their mission by coming together virtually to create fun, uplifting bookmarks for these young people to use. Your warmth can go a long way in putting smiles on their faces despite the adversities they face, and it will motivate them to keep reading and continue dedicating themselves to their studies during these uncertain times. Instructions will be provided for how volunteers can mail their finished bookmarks to the organization following the virtual event.
