Many things inspire people to volunteer. It may be a newspaper article that pulls your heartstrings, wise words from a mentor, or a gift you are given just when you need it most. It’s More Than an article, More Than a word, or More Than a gift – it’s the catalyst that inspires you to give of your time, energy, or money.
We call this inspiration a More Than moment.
Foster Care to Success has created the More Than a Box campaign to recognize the moments that inspire people to volunteer.
How we create More Than moments
With the help of hundreds of wonderful donors and volunteers, FC2S sent 2,500 foster youth in colleges across the country care packages this February. Each one is much More Than a Box! Our care packages are More Than goodies and fluffy red scarves—they are an opportunity for volunteers to make a difference, and the sense of being cared for and supported that they instill in our students inspires their generosity in turn.
As we tell our stories, we also want to highlight yours!
What’s Your More Than moment?
Do you remember something you did or that was done for you, something you read or heard, or something you received – that was important to you for More Than just the item or experience itself?
We want the world to hear about the More Than experience that is at the heart of your desire to volunteer and how you volunteer.
Add your story to the More Than a Box campaign! Together let’s lift up our voices and show why volunteering counts.
