World Games Virtual Volunteers

Become a Virtual Volunteer!

If you want to volunteer at the largest sports event in history exclusively for dwarf athletes, but you're in some other part of the world August 3-10, 2013, be a World Games Virtual Volunteer.


Actual volunteers get specific work assignments for six-hour shifts. They have to wear special shirts to be easily recognized. And you can't expect them to work that long in mid-August heat without giving them something to eat and drink. Add it up, and each 'free volunteer' costs about $20*.


So for $20, sponsor a volunteer at the Games! You take credit for their good works, deduct it from your taxes**, and don't even break a sweat! Virtual volunteers play an important role in making these Games a success. Donate on-line right now and enter "Virtual Volunteer" on the designation line. We'll add you to the Virtual Volunteer Registry in the next column.


Or send a check payable to the Dwarf Athletic Association of America, Inc. Make sure to enter "Virtual Volunteer" on the check's note line! Mail to:


Dwarf Athletic Association of America
708 Gravenstein Hwy, North, #118
Sebastapol, CA 95472


And at only $20 a pop, you can sponsor as many volunteers as you want. Sponsor five or more and we'll make you a Virtual Volunteer Team Leader! Just add your team name on the designation or note line.


On behalf of dwarf athletes around the world, Thank You!


* Volunteer Costs: $10 for a guest meal at Athlete Village and $8 for a decent volunteer T-shirt leaves about $2 for water, juice, and volunteer tracking! 


** The Dwarf Athletic Association of America, Inc., official host of the 2013 World Dwarf Games, is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing athletic opportunities to athletes of all ages with dwarfism.
