Volunteers are an integral part of our organisation.
In the beginning, Make-A-Wish® Luxembourg's heart and soul was the organisation’s President, Marcel Hagendoorn. In order to recognise his commitment and the hours he put in to the organisation the other volunteers at the time created the “Volunteer of the Year” Award to be able to honour him. Together with the board of directors they presented him with this award at Make-A-Wish Luxembourg’s first birthday party held in November 2013.
Continuing in this spirit, in appreciation of their hard work, once a year, the Luxembourg office will nominate one volunteer for the “Volunteer of the Year” Award.
These individuals have displayed extraordinary motivation; determination and dedication in helping the Luxembourg office make magical wishes come true.
