I work for a fledgling non-profit. We have 1000 volunteers spread throughout the state but most people are in the capital. We hold a barbecue once a year and inevitably, it's here in the city. Most of our social events, meetings etc are here in the city. Now we're coming up to the end of the year, I really want t thank everyone for their hard work. The thing we're doing is socially, historically and politically significant. It's an uphill battle for many because we're breaking long and tightly held tradition and often its the people outside of the big city who deal with the most resistance (therefore, do the hardest work and with least support). 1. What are some good things you've done or seen to thank volunteers in general? 2. What can I do to include those who are out of the city? I have $3000 to spend.
