Microvolunteering Day – 15th March

What is micro volunteering?

Micro volunteering is a chance for a volunteer to donate small chunks of time to a charitable project, often through a web-enabled device. As Ivo explains, “A quick scout around the web reveals many definitions, but one that seems most apt would be ‘small, quick, low commitment actions that benefit a worthy cause’.” Sparked, a volunteer matching website has a tag line that reads, “It’s online volunteering, for busy people (like you).”

This means it can be done on the bus, whilst on a lunch break or even in your pyjamas!
