Brittany Shambo

Director of Communications & PR at Celebrating One

I chose to volunteer for Celebrating One because I am passionate about mental health and this non-profit aims to help improve the community by bettering the mental and emotional health of individuals in several innovative ways!

Robin Plate

Volunteer coordinator at Celebrating One

My friend and former employer, Sam Baddoo, told me about Celebrating One. He spoke so highly of Jurgita and the mission of the organization—recognize the importance of the individual and celebrate each person’s milestone—no matter how small they may appear to others.  He knew my love of designing and distributing handmade cards to others in all facets of my life—friends, family, students, colleagues, and those that I assist on their job search and career development—and encouragement me to participate. He also nominated me to be a recipient of the cards.  I believe in recognizing not only milestones, but moments of sadness, loneliness, and struggle. Each person must overcome so many personal challenges and every step deserves applause and recognition. We need love. We deserve praise. We depend on the care from others. Celebrating One gives all of this to others and it brings me joy to be one of the people who reaches out. Job coaching and helping people reach their full potential in their lives is my passion and it directly aligns with the volunteer coordinator position.

Volunteer Positions and Interns

Celebrating One is an entire, 100% volunteer-run. We are making a lot of impact in our community – but we need your help! (It’s super fun, we promise. There may or may not be snacks…).

These positions make sure our donations go directly towards the folks we serve. Most of these positions are 75% remote and require 2-3 hours a week (that's like only 3 episodes of Gilmour Girls).
