Microvolunteering Day-15th April 2015

Microvolunteering can be described as easy, no commitment, on-demand actions that typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. It can be participated in either online or offline, and by its very nature will fit in even into the busiest of lifestyles.

The UK based Institute of Volunteering Research’s latest study into microvolunteering, dated November 2013, concluded that the demand for microvolunteering actions from individuals is increasing. In response to this, Help From Home, one of the world’s leading microvolunteering platforms,  is organising a Microvolunteering Day on 15th April to promote awareness of the concept and how it can benefit worthy causes and individuals in their efforts to better the world via bite-sized actions, sometimes in as little as 10 minutes.

Whilst the concept of microvolunteering has been around for ages, it was only in 2008 when it began to feature on the voluntary sector’s radar. Nowadays there are just under 30 dedicated microvolunteering platforms dotted around the world, all encouraging individuals to make the spare moments in their life more impactful.

The aim of Microvolunteering Day is to engage individuals in micro-actions, to inspire nonprofits to embrace the idea, and to stimulate discussion on the concept. It provides various campaigns to achieve this, targeted at Volunteers, Organisations and Employees.

Mike Bright, Founder of Help From Home, said, ‘Microvolunteering Day is about bringing people together in a synchronised effort to participate in bite-sized altruistic actions. It’s one day, with 24 hours, where people are encouraged to find just 10 minutes to do-good’.
