Give A Day – Get A Disney Day

Give A Day – Get A Disney Day is a new program, spearheaded by the Disney Parks, to celebrate and inspire volunteerism. The program, which starts January 1st, has set a goal of enlisting one million volunteers throughout the nation to help nonprofit organizations in 2010. In return, the volunteer receives a free pass to a Disney park.

It works like this…individuals sign up on the Give A Day – Get A Disney Day Official Website, then search and select from a list of eligible volunteer opportunities with participating organizations. Once the volunteer participation with the selected group is completed, the individual obtains verification from the organization, provides it to Disney, and receives a one day pass for a Walt Disney World® or Disneyland® theme park, absolutely FREE!

Disney Parks is operating the program in cooperation with the HandsOn Network, which has 250 on-the-ground volunteer action centers across the country and connects volunteers to more than 70,000 nonprofit agencies that need their help.

Gay Central Valley has joined the list of nonprofit organizations which will participate in this important program.

Gay Central Valley is looking for volunteers to participate in such areas as…

Graphic design
Our organization is in need of logo redesign and also new logo creation. This volunteer opportunity can be completed from home.

Information distribution
Seeking assistance with distributing business cards and brochures. Items will promote our nonprofit organization. This will mainly occur in the tower district, but also other local book stores, etc. Literature to distribute can be picked up and the time frame is flexible.

Online outreach
Assistance needed with expanding our online outreach via Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, etc.
Our goal is to expend our reach outside of the Fresno/Clovis area to other communities in the central valley. This opportunity would include working in an office environment and mainly contacting existing "friends" on social networks to become involved and to expand the existing network of "friends".

Online research
As a new nonprofit organization, we are seeking assistance in locating donations of items to raffle. This volunteer opportunity would involve working in our office and contacting local and national organizations (mainly online via forms and email) to secure needed items to fundraise.

Sponsorship assistance
Seeking assistance with making telephone calls to potential advertisers. Also making phone calls to build an LGBT friendly community directory.

The program kicks off on January 1st, 2010 and runs until tickets are distributed or December 15, 2010, whichever occurs first.
