For Star Wars fans, right across the globe, May 4 is classified as Star Wars Day, a day to celebrate the phenomenon of the hit movie franchise. With a take on ‘May the force’ be with you, May 4 is a significant diary date for millions of people all around the world.

With the help of a local volunteer group, Southern Dewback Garrison - 501st Legion – ‘Darth Vader’ is joining the journey to thank over one million volunteers in South Australia and the Northern Territory - by launching National Volunteer Week.

‘Colour Your Community Red’ is an online social media campaign to thank and celebrate the almost one million South Australian volunteers. It replaces the annual launch of National Volunteer Week’s parade and BBQ in Adelaide and the Darwin thank you event, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

‘Colour Your Community Red’ will give everyone in the community a chance to thank volunteers and for volunteers to stand up and be proud to be a volunteer in their State or Territory. We want everyone, right down the middle of Australia – from North to South to be involved in this year’s campaign to acknowledge, thank and celebrate over one million volunteers.

‘Colour Your Community Red’ will highlight the amazing work of volunteers and with the unprecedented bushfires in Australia and now COVID-19, these tough times have really bonded communities.
We are asking organisations and businesses to light up or decorate their buildings to ‘spread the red’ from 18-24 May 2020. So far we are very pleased to confirm the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Cara Inc, and we are still in negotiations on CBD buildings.

If you are a volunteer involving organisation, a volunteer or anyone that supports volunteering, you can participate by tying something red out the front of your home. Tie a ribbon, scarf, table cloth or even a tea towel around your letterbox, fence or tree – take a picture or a video, post it on socials to show how great it is to be or know a volunteer.

Tag @Volunteering SA&NT or Volunteering NT and use the campaign hashtags including one with your postcode so we can see how far the celebrations go into our communities. Eg. #5000

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual event which acknowledges and celebrates the generous contribution of our nation's volunteers. At this uncertain time it is more important than ever to recognise and acknowledge Australia's volunteers. Instead of in person events, online activities and campaigns will take their place to recognise and thank our volunteers. 

The theme changes each year, and this year, it is Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
