Volunteer from Home

21 May

I love the new micro trends– micro-fiction, micro-payments, micro-lending and micro-volunteering. Micro-volunteering used to be running SETI@Home, or similar programs that used your computers power while you weren’t. I signed up for it early on and still love the concept.

Now, though, micro-volunteering has taken the next step with Sparked.com. At Sparked, you sign up indicating your interests and skills, then you look for challenges posted by charities- places where they need your help. A challenge takes a couple hours max.

No matter how busy you are, how hard is it to volunteer from the comfort of your computer chair?

    Orange mobile also have an app for micro-volunteering app called “Do Some Good”. There’s a preview at http://bit.ly/DoSomeGood (not spam honest) if you’re interested.
