Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Don't Give Up ~ 46664~Mr Mandela gave his prison number to the organisation as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices he was prepared to make for a humanitarian and social justice cause he passionately believed in.

Click on the link above to see the 46664 main page!

46664 (four, double six, six four) takes its name from the prison number (prisoner number 466 of 1964) given to Mr Mandela when he was incarcerated for life on Robben Island, off Cape Town, South Africa.  Mr Mandela gave his prison number to the organization as a permanent reminder of the sacrifices he was prepared to make for a humanitarian and social justice cause he passionately believed in.

In creating 46664 initially as a global HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention campaign, Mr Mandela realised that to reach the youth all over the world specifically, he needed to engage the support of the people who most appeal to them. This has been seen most visibly through the high-profile 46664 concerts of the past few years and the appointment of 46664 ambassadors.
Although these activities remain an important part of its approach, 46664 has revisited its social mobilisation model in recent years. There is now a strong emphasis on the role individuals can play in taking forward Mr Mandela’s humanitarian legacy through activities and projects like Nelson Mandela Day which encourages individuals worldwide to make good on Mr Mandela’s challenge at the 46664 London concert in 2008 for his work to continue and that “new hands be found to lift the burden”. 
In addition, 46664 has expanded its focus from being a global HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention campaign into encompassing all areas of Mr Mandela’s humanitarian legacy as well as confronting issues of social injustice.
In moving ahead with this expanded focus, 46664 has partnered with carefully selected commercial and social profit entities to ensure the organization doesn’t only depend on philanthropy alone but becomes a sustainable fundraising vehicle too. Among the projects that contribute to this are the Official 46664 Bangle, the 46664 Vodacom Starter Pack and now 46664 Apparel.
46664 was established in 2002 as an independent, not-for-profit organization. 

adidas and 46664 celebrate diversity and unity in South Africa

Today adidas brand icon Haile Gebrselassie handed over the official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ final match ball to 46664 to symbolise the value of adidas’ fundraising efforts that will contribute to a lasting legacy of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa. In 2010, adidas embarked on a campaign entitled Unite Mzansi Unite (UMU) aimed at uniting the people of South Africa in celebration and pride behind the first African World Cup. The adidas UMU campaign was created to inspire the world to celebrate diversity in unity while raising funds for the 46664 campaign and contribute to long-term projects that will leave a lasting legacy long after the implementation of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

In recent years, 46664 has transformed its social mobilisation model and expanded its focus to ensure wider participation and a broader beneficiary base.
In keeping with this expansion trend, the organisation has announcend the establishment of  partnerships with a number of commercial and social profit entities. Through these partnerships, 46664 aims to become a sustainable fundraising vehicle that does not depend solely on philanthropy. Click here to read more about 46664.

“Mr Mandela has taken a number that holds great personal heartache, and the memory of a tragic time in his country’s history, and has turned it into a beacon of hope for the entire world. I am proud to be an ambassador and eager to help him realise his vision of a world without HIV/AIDS.”
