Multiple Births Canada (MBC) recognizes National Volunteer Week April 18-24, 2021

Updated: Jun 27

We would like to take the time to thank all of our volunteers who continue to contribute and support our organization. Volunteer Canada in collaboration with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has declared The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021 to be "The Value of One, The Power of Many". This theme and strong statement truly reflect how volunteerism works! It takes many to achieve various initiatives and run a successful charity organization like MBC.

Over the past 43 years of the existence of MBC, we have counted on many volunteers to help create a community across Canada that supports families of multiple births from the aspects of providing support, education, research, and advocacy both nationally and internationally.

All volunteers help us improve the quality of life for multiple birth individuals and their families in Canada.

We thank you for all that you do, whether it is supporting a network, organizing an event, leading a fundraiser, volunteer for a local chapter, holding a board position, contributing to discussions online, providing virtual support. We recognize you!

We value you and you all make the power of many! Happy National Volunteer Week.

We would also like to remind you about the Making A Difference Awards (MADA), should you know someone who should be recognized, this is a great opportunity and method to say thank you to a model volunteer. The deadline to submit a nomination is September 15, 2021.

The Making a Difference Awards (MADAs) were established in 1999 by Bonnie and Jim Schultz to honour MBC founder, Sheryl McInnes. They are awarded annually to recognize the contributions and achievements of dedicated volunteers, chapters, corporations, media, healthcare professionals and others.
