Volunteering is offering freely to do something. It can be a valuable and rewarding experience for both the volunteer and the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED). Volunteering enables you to play an active role in the Foundation and contribute to positive change!
Are you tired of people not knowing about ectodermal dysplasias? Volunteering can be a way to raise awareness for the conditions and develop understanding.
Have you wished you could talk with other families affected by ectodermal dysplasias?
Volunteering can give you opportunities to meet new people. In the process, you can learn new skills, discover new interests, gain confidence, and even boost your employment or scholarship prospects.
Have you benefited from being a part of the NFED and wondered at times about how you could give back? We can provide you with ways to make life less challenging, frustrating and overwhelming for others. You can help assure them that they are not alone.
While you are making a positive difference in the lives of others, your own life will also be enhanced. Helping others makes us all feel good!
If you have never volunteered for the Foundation, I invite you to step outside the box and sign up. You will grow as a person.
