At Global Gifts, volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. We rely on your generous contributions of time and talent to keep our costs low so that artisans in developing nations can receive the maximum benefit from our fair trade mission. Your efforts make a tremendous impact.

As a "thank you" to our volunteers, we have created our Lead Volunteer program--a program that rewards you for your volunteer service. The Lead Volunteer program allows you to earn points that can be redeemed for pre-selected Global Gifts products or gift cards. You can earn points in the following ways:

  Complete two shifts in one month1 point
  Complete more than two shifts in
  one month
1 point for each additional shift
  Sub for another volunteer1 point
  Sub for another volunteer with less than 24
  hours notice
2 points
  Refer a new volunteer who completes
  four months of service
4 points


For every 10 points, you will receive your choice of:

  • a $15.00 Global Gifts gift card
  • a special edition Global Gifts tote bag.

Upon completion of your first 10 points, you will receive a Certificate of Appreciation acknowledging that you have reached "Lead Volunteer" status. 

If this seems like a lot to keep track of, no worries! Your volunteer coordinator will keep track of your points for you and let you know when you've reached 10 points. Please email to let your volunteer coordinator know when you are subbing for another volunteer. 

Again, thank you for all you do and the support you give to Global Gifts.  Your contributions translate into real support going to families that rely on our purchases.
