Partner Spotlight: Volunteer Odyssey

a recent highlight from our movement

Posted by Audrey Tetzeli on December 6th, 2018

On Wednesday, December 5th, we hosted Volunteer Odyssey at our office for their December Voluncheers event! An amazing group of volunteers helped to write our holiday cards to our supporters in 2018! 

Voluncheers is a “happy hour” event organized by Volunteer Odyssey that gives volunteers an opportunity to connect with a new nonprofit while working on a short term project here in Memphis. Here are a few photos from the night with them:

We’re always looking for ways to connect with our supporters on a more personal level. At the end of the year, we like to bring back the lost art form of the handwritten card and let everyone who was a part of our movement to empower the Sudanese people know that we appreciate them! These 12 amazing volunteers came to lend a hand (and their handwriting) to help us make this happen, and to enjoy food, drinks, and conversation together too.

The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide. Operation Broken Silence is accelerating their ability to generate lasting change by funding storytelling and movement-building, education and emergency response, and grassroots advocacy programs. Here are a few ways you can join us:

1. Join The Renewal. This is our family of monthly givers who never stop pushing the needle forwards. They give automatically each and every month, providing consistent support to our Sudanese partners. Renewal members who give $25+ a month also get free tickets to our two annual events! LEARN MORE »

3. Give The OBS Experience. If you are in the Memphis, TN area with us, we have the perfect Christmas gift you can give to a loved one!
