The AllPeopleBeHappy Volunteer Service Award enables volunteers to do service projects in the developing world. These Volunteer Service Awards enable impassioned young people to give of their time and talents while expanding their understanding of people and communities living in poverty. This program was launched in early 2010, and there were 5 award winners. Fundraising enabled us to increase the number of award recipients to 9 in 2011, to 11 in 2012, and then to 17 in 2013. To read about the efforts of these volunteers, click on the "2010 Award Recipients", or the "2011 Award Recipients", or the "2012 Award Recipients", or the "2013 Award Recipients".
