As a ShelterBox Canada Advocate you support ShelterBox by sharing our recent news and updates from the field. Advocates are very important for getting our message across multiple platforms so that we can reach the most people from coast-to-coast. We are looking for people who have an enthusiasm for spreading the word about ShelterBox and can create their own content to engage with their networks.





Volunteering with ShelterBox is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, as it makes me feels like I am a part of something larger. I think it is very energizing and emotionally rewarding.’
