Global Community Engagement Day- 28 January
Community involvement is a process of collaboration within community groups to address issues that affect the well-being of these groups. Although the term seems vague, community involvement is a concept that is a part of every person's life.
Any action you take that helps people in your community, whether it's a local community like the neighborhood or city where you live, or the country where you live, any such thing is community involvement. Community Involvement Day is designed to express appreciation to people who contribute to their community through various activities. Even if you contribute in your actions to something global, outside the boundaries of where you live, you are considered community involved because you are part of a large community of Earth inhabitants and you deserve appreciation.
Community involvement can be manifested in many activities for the community such as: helping the elderly, assisting the disabled, working with autistics, providing free private lessons for needy children, raising and distributing food packages to the needy, medical assistance to animals or providing assistance in animal shelters, animal adoption As a foster family until they find a permanent home, volunteering for the Civil Guard or rescue organizations and more.
Global Community Involvement Day started as an idea of the Engage 2 Act, an organization that aims to promote community involvement by bringing people together to talk about important issues in their community. Engage 2 Act started as a small group in South Australia that wanted to reach out to people all over the world and talk about what they are doing for community involvement. Because they wanted to put the holiday on the world map, they started with a survey, and asked their followers on social media, who is the person most active in community involvement. Whoever received the most number of votes, his birthday will be their official holiday date.
The results of the surveys showed that the most prominent person in his community involvement is the writer Dr. Wendy Sarkissian and that is why they chose her birthday today as the world community involvement.
How to celebrate Community Involvement Day?
One way to celebrate this special day is to meet with your colleagues who are involved in the community and do for it and celebrate with a good meal. You can also talk to other people about it, organize lectures and post on social media your activities and those of other people in your community. Today almost every locality in the country has a Facebook page and it is today to post on this page the special holiday and encourage people to take part in the community and donate their time and skills to it. Everyone has something to contribute and it is always exciting to see people helping each other.
