Refer A Friend

GOOD TIMES WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY MAKE MEMORIES YOU NEVER FORGET!

There are many fascinating facts about volunteering with the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival. One of the most interesting is that 1 in 4 volunteers learn about the opportunity through their friends or family. Imagine the impact each volunteer could have if every volunteer referred just one friend or family member! And what could be better than volunteering with someone you already like spending time with?

 

Asking a friend or family member to join you in volunteering can be as simple as saying: “Would you like to volunteer with me at the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival?” You can also share why you chose to volunteer or use one of the festival’s helpful talking points:

 

  • Because volunteering makes you feel good! And who doesn’t want a little happiness pick me up.

  • It’s a fun way to get your volunteer hours while enjoying the outdoors.

  • Everything is better when I do it with you.

  • We'll create wonderful new memories and maybe a few inside jokes.

  • You'll get a free limited-edition t-shirt and snacks.

 

So you've asked, and your friend or a family member has said yes. That’s great! Now it’s time to decide where to volunteer. The festival has some great options that are perfect for volunteering together. 

 

  • Passionate about the environment? Green Team is the place to be.

  • Outgoing and love meeting new people? Help out at Volunteer Village.

  • Enthusiastic about green transportation? Bike Parking needs you.

  • Want to get up close to the action? Dock attendants are right where the boats and paddlers are.

  • Up for anything? Want to help wherever you’re needed? Alternates go everywhere and do everything.

 

Whether you volunteer alone or with your friends and family, all the festival’s volunteers are valued and play a role in its success. Who would you ask to volunteer with you? Why not ask them to volunteer with you today? The festival’s volunteer coordinators cannot wait to welcome everyone back to Mooney’s Bay this June!
