Designed by Will Davies.
Every year some 3,000,000 Canadians do volunteer work. This represents a gift to society of more than $3,000,000,000. In addition to those who are helped, the volunteers themselves also benefit. They make new friends, learn new skills, explore career choices, gain work experience, have fun, and have the satisfaction of helping others. And of course the community benefits too. Many jobs would not get done and many people would not be given a helping hand without volunteers. Canada will therefore be applauding them during National Volunteer Week, 26 April to 2 May 1987. The Volunteers stamp was designed by Toronto illustrator Will Davies. The design features people from all walks of life and suggests the multiplicity of activities and organizations which involve the participation of volunteers.
