Linda Llewellyn, Founder
Hi! I’m Linda Llewellyn, the founder of Celebrate Volunteers. I was inspired to create Celebrate Volunteers after working with thousands of volunteers over twenty plus years. They bring their talents, experience, and unique qualities to volunteering along with an undeniable spirit of wanting to help others. I was blessed with the opportunity to know so many great volunteers. What I valued so much was each person and the unique way they accomplished a meaningful impact in the life of another. Celebrate Volunteers is a way to honor and share the story of volunteers, who accomplish anything and everything, while inspiring others. Thank you to all the outstanding volunteers for your service and to all those who work with volunteers for sharing their story and appreciating their efforts.
I am so grateful for the love, support, and collaboration received from family and friends. Special thanks, appreciation and hugs to:
I was also blessed with the talented work of outstanding professionals.:

It has been a busy, educational and inspiring summer with the Points of Light Service Unites Conference in Seattle in June and the MAVA National Summit on Volunteer Engagement in St. Paul in July. Both conferences brought together volunteer managers with great speakers. The energy at both was positive and powerful as volunteer managers absorbed new information, inspired by success stories, and shared and collaborated with their unique tribe.View Post
In our childhood, we learn that summer is a time for play and fun. We looked forward to summer vacation. It was a time to take a break from our studies and from learning. It was a time of joy.View Post
For the past two weeks, I have been watching a bird in my back yard while I drink my morning coffee. At first, I thought it was just one of the pesky birds waiting for me to go inside so it could enjoy the cat food in the automatic feeder set out for the feral kitties who live in our back yard. Over a couple of days, I noticed a pattern to this bird’s activities that didn’t have anything to do with cat food. This bird was building a nest in the Ficus tree.View Post
