Volunteers are vital for a healthy, happy society. One in five Australians over 15 years of age volunteers across many areas of interest, not for pay but for other rewards. These stories will let you know who these people are and why they volunteer - their personalities and achievements and some surprising behind-the-scenes information.
"It is easy to be intimidated by what seem to be insurmountable odds, but when you believe in what you do and have people around you who share the passion and the vision, you have almost unbeatable power." - Dr Aila Keto, Queensland of the Year 2000.
"This book is a wonderful contribution to the International Year of Volunteers. It conveys the diversity of volunteers and the range of activities in which they are involved.

"Volunteering Australia is delighted to support a book that lets volunteers speak for themselves." - Sha Cordingley, Volunteering Australia.
"This is inspiring and joyful reading about how Australia's volunteers of all ages and backgrounds give to the community in an infinite variety of ways. Instead of grumbling about problems they help provide solutions." - Anne Deveson.
