Microvolunteering Day

Microvolunteering platform Help From Home has organised Microvolunteering Day on Saturday 15 March 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.

Microvolunteering involves 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 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.

Help from Home will provide various campaigns to achieve this, including:

  • Tell Ten To Do Ten - 10 people to be contacted to each perform 10 minutes of microvolunteering;
  • Pyjama Power - micro-actions to be performed in pyjamas, with a selfie posted to Twitter using #MicroDay to record the action;
  • Micro On The Go - microvolunteering to be conducted whilst out and about on the go, either with or without internet access; and
  • 10 minutes of Fame - lists down a huge array of 10 minute actions to achieve 10 minutes of fame.
