“I Know that you can’t take anything, but will refuse books. Besides, she signed,” shares in social networks photo, a volunteer.

“And I with the products issued the letter of thanks. Not resin not to take the”, – another volunteer puts a photo of the sheet of paper on which neat handwriting displayed: “Dear boys and girls and all who organize the work of volunteers! We, the older generation, Express our gratitude for the kindness, courtesy and diligence. Thank you very much and kowtow for their invaluable assistance in this difficult time.”

“thank you again! She would not have bought themselves better is a screenshot of the message sent by the pensioner to the volunteer. – God bless you and your family. There are more good people than bad, no matter what”.

And another: “Thank you! When there are such people, it is worth to stay on earth. Good luck!”.

In the center of the city volunteers and the hotline is constantly receiving calls with words of gratitude, – says the coordinator of the Milan Chanysheva. – Write letters, shoot a friendly video message. All this, of course, very nice to everyone of us. And especially nice to give a personal thanks. Some applicants are very attached to their volunteers and I can not wait, when it will be able to sit with their heroes over a Cup of tea. I think many people after this project will be friends, more than one year.

Many retirees call the hotline and ask where and how they can fix their gratitude to the volunteers who helped them within two months. They can’t check out the award because they work for free? What a pity. Well, maybe at least a book of reviews? No? How can that be?..

the Petersburg volunteers figured out how to give people the opportunity to Express their appreciation. Now they sbiralsya photos and short videos with kind words and even written poems retired to mount them from the movie “Thank you volunteers”. After all, voluntary to literally work for free.

Volunteers are people just like everyone else. And of course, appreciation always warms the soul. A kind word, a phone call… and sometimes just a look. Sometimes, I put the package of food and look in the eyes of the grandfather or grandmother – and you can not say anything. Well, that masks don’t turn a blind eye. Sometimes they like a mirror reflects the whole depth of human souls, – the volunteer speaks Alexander Skvortsov. – Of course, we are not here for thanks. But to hear a kind word – always humanly nice. One grandma was asked to write my name. Thought for the staff to check or something like that… And she folded in half and whispered: “I am for you, my son, pray I will!” What else is there to add…
