Count Me In | Volunteering during Christmas

You get so much back when you give yourself and your time to other people.

Taking care of our community this Christmas!

While busy with your daily life, you can start to lose a sense of connection to the larger community.

Join the network that’s making a difference in Amsterdam. Our community of like-minded volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and share a common interest in making meaningful connections with the people of Amsterdam.

As a volunteer, you get to step outside yourself, expand your horizons while connecting with those in need all around our city. We make it easy for our volunteers to take small steps that actually create a world of difference for vulnerable people. Helping out doesn’t take a long time or a big commitment. And anyone can do it! 

With Count Me in For X-mas, we have a lot of ways for you to do something nice for others this Christmas. We are looking for 500 Christmas parcels for families living in poverty, and you can help by donating one! We also have projects such as, making Christmas decorations, having Christmas dinners, doing Christmas baking, and much more. Because we want to give everybody a loving Christmas feeling this year!

We believe in creating a more connected community for all the people in our city, and it starts with us

Do you want to join us this Christmas?
