Volunteering


  • Generous Hearts is a grassroots organization that works from the heart. We are looking for volunteers who are dedicated to creating world peace through acts of kindness and who would like to be a part of a small but dedicated family of volunteers.
  • Because we are small, our organization can offer you an opportunity to get creative and be flexible. We will not require you to give off your time weekly, or to be tied down to formality. Instead we bring out the fun-loving, innovative side in people. Brazil is, after all, known for its joyful heart.

What can you do as a volunteer?

  • We most often need peole to volunteer around our events. This could mean anything from helping to advertise, to preparing pamphlets, flyers or by spreading the word through the contacts you already have. Or it could mean making food for the event, helping to set up, taking money at the door.
  • We also need people to help us with other fundraising ideas: from holding a garage sale, a bingo party or giving a talk at a church. Our organization attracts donors who like to know where their money is being spent, and to feel part of the work we are doing; and so we are always looking for small, intimate event ideas.
  • Last, but not least, we encourage any of our volunteers to come down to Recife and meet the people we are helping in person. This way you will come to feel directly the results of the work you are doing.
If you would be interested in becoming a volunteer please email us at generoushearts@sympatico.ca or click on the "Contact Us" section for our phone numbers and snail mail information.
