National Volunteer Week Ideas: A Book Is A Great Way to Say Thanks

Volunteers should be recognized and celebrated, and with National Volunteer Week right around the corner, the gift of a customized book is the perfect way to show appreciation.

The Book Company has put together a cool package for nonprofits that want to communicate in a meaningful way — with a personal messages on the inside page of inspirational books.

The promotional technique, which is called a Promo-Page Insert, allows you to select books (prices range from $5 -$15 each) that are actually likely to be read, shared, displayed and treasured for years to come.

You send the message. The company handles all the printing. You can see examples of this here.

Examples of book titles that would work well for National Volunteer Week include:

  • Heart of a Volunteer
  • Chicken Soup for the Volunteer’s Soul
  • 1: How many people does it take to make a difference?
  • Because of You
