Why Volunteer with The Ehlers-Danlos Society
There are many reasons an individual might pursue volunteer opportunities. Volunteering is an opportunity to get out in your community—be it your local community, or the EDS and HSD community—and use your talents, passion, and skills, to not only give back and help your community but also connect with more individuals in that community that may someday become good friends.
One of the many benefits of volunteering is that it often challenges you to break out of your comfort zone, which helps you grow as an individual. Volunteering can also give you a sense of reason or purpose. While you are giving back to the community and helping to improve the lives of others, you are improving your life in the process.
Some individuals volunteer because they believe in and want to help further the mission of The Ehlers-Danlos Society, and want to give back to the organization that positively impacted their life. Others choose to volunteer so they can meet people, forge new friendships, and strengthen their support system. Like each zebra’s pattern of stripes is unique, so is every one of our volunteers. Each individual brings their unique skills, talents, and story to tell our community. The more stories we share, the better the picture we can paint of our community, and it strengthens our herd. No matter your reason, we are delighted that you are interested in volunteering with us.
