The rationale for online volunteer registration:
It is vitally important to register your interest as a volunteer on this website. First and foremost it ensures we have adequate t-shirts and supplies. Furthermore it helps our Team Leaders to know how many more volunteers they need to recruit. There are numerous variables in preparing for Mission of Hope. Please register so our volunteer team leaders know what and who to prepare for. While we understand some may be concerned about personal privacy we assure you your contact information will only be used by our Team Leaders in preparing for this exciting day together. If you do not have an email address, simply register with email@example.com
