THE LEGACY OF THE HAT

 
               
 
 
THANK YOU TO LOHUD AND THE HUNDREDS OF COMMUNITY LEADERS
THAT HAVE STEPPED UP TO WEAR THE HAT ON GIVING TUESDAY
 
The "volunteer hat" has been at the center of our annual Giving Tuesday campaign with The Journal News since its launch in 2015. It was chosen out of appreciation for the many "hats" that a typical volunteer wears throughout their lifetime as they balance and switch between life, work, and service. The "volunteer hat" was also chosen as a symbol of the important role that supporters of Volunteer New York! play in providing our organization with the critical resources we need to maintain our programs, grow our impact, and inspire volunteerism.
 
The reason we provide our Giving Tuesday supporters the chance to wear this symbolic "hat" each year is because through "wearing the volunteer hat" and their generous support -- our team is able to help thousands of people find their own "volunteer hat" (or their "volunteer opportunity" or "role in their community") that fits them and how they want to give back. In the end "wearing the hat" is a reminder that generosity is one of the most powerful tools we have to bring about more generosity and positive change.
 
While each year the design of the Giving Tuesday "hat" has changed, what it represents, the impact it makes, and the way it brings our community closer together has not.
