We know you have a lot going on … and that’s why you have not gotten around to volunteering at the local homeless shelter, or even cleaning out your closet to drop off the clothes you were planning to donate, even though it was on your list of New Year’s resolutions.
Despite spending over 700 billion minutes a month on Facebook and watching more than 3 billion YouTube videos a day, if it can’t be done while procrastinating in front of a computer, we all seem to fall back on the excuse that there are just too few hours in a day.
What if you could take a few minutes waiting at the doctors office, 10 minutes after work or a half hour before bed and volunteer online or through your phone? Today we’re featuring a website that can help you volunteer without leaving your computer.
Sparked is the world’s first micro-volunteering network that makes it convenient for busy professionals to use their skills to help nonprofits. The website matches individuals based on their interests with organizations in need. Nonprofits will post “challenges” to the network like, “Can you help us design a new logo for our organization?” and micro-volunteers can respond.
