This National Volunteer week Catchafire would like to celebrate all of the professionals who serve their communities pro bono. For many of them, volunteering time, skills, passion, and talent is more than a choice. It’s a lifestyle.
Join us in celebration and tell the Catchafire community who inspires you through their pro bono service.
On our homepage at Catchafire.org, our team will share a few words and an image recognizing a professional who inspires us with their pro bono service. These are individuals who rock their skills and talents to boost the capacity of communities in need.
Here’s 2 Ways You Can Get Involved:
1. Take a minute to give a shout-out to a friend, lover, family member, neighbor, colleague or peer who dedicates time to give back pro bono:
Step 1: Submit your nominee at www.catchafire.org/nominate.
Step 2: Share a photo (instead of a thousand words!)
Photos should capture a cause, celebrate a community commitment, recognize a person’s fun spirit, or all of the above. Your submission and photo will be included on the Catchafire pro bono Wall of Fame so your personal inspiration can bask in the glory of their fellow rock star pro bono professional peers.
- If you use Instagram, tag #catchafire to a photo that represents your nominee and write their name next to it.
- If you do not use Instagram, send a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
