My mistake: there weren't 8,000 volunteers.
There were 9,640. Along with all the artillery, aircraft and AA-guns Sweden could spare. (which is, all of it, really)
"Finland's cause is ours!", indeed.

I guess you are not right. During the Spanish civil war, the socialists organized more than 40.000 volunteers from many countries. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Brigades
