The Feathers Project has opened the door to a variety of volunteer positions that tie into the skills of employees. The Feathers Project has becoms a vehicle for interested employees to add more meaning to their usual work. Conferencing, webinar, marketing research services and tech support employees facilitate the web meetings that occur between donors and their beneficiary families.
Transcriptionists, editors, Please.Do activity stewards, and account managers also join in with these groups to attend donor and beneficiary family introductions, help act as interpreters, and purchase supplies for family donations.
Volunteers also help run holiday events for the beneficiary families, organize financial stewardship sessions, gather gifts for kids, and generally do whatever they can to help donors get their beneficiary families back on their feet. When asked, almost 100% of the volunteers have said they will volunteer again.
