Volunteering Event: Global Microvolunteering Day @ Worldwide
Apr 15 all-day

MICRO VOLUNTEERING DAY

Micro Volunteering DayMicrovolunteering Day is a unique opportunity for microvolunteering platforms, volunteer involved organisations & individuals to join together in a synchronised effort to demonstrate the empowering potential of the microvolunteering concept. It is primarily aimed at:

  • engaging individuals in microvoluntering tasks
  • inspiring organisations to embrace the idea
  • stimulating discussion on the concept
  • sharing photos + stories via #Microday!

Microvolunteering Day is recognised every year on April 15th and promotes awareness of the microvolunteering concept and how it can enable worthy causes and individuals to better the world via bite-sized actions.

It is a unique opportunity for dedicated microvolunteering platforms, volunteer-involving organisations and individuals to join together in a synchronised effort to promote their contributions and demonstrate the power and potential of the microvolunteering concept.

So what is microvolunteering? There’s a few definitions out there, but the most generic one is:

“bite-sized, on-demand, no commitment actions that benefit a worthy cause”

 

The term ‘microvolunteering’ was popularised in 2008 by The Extraordinaries (now Skills For Change), where the concept has since grown in stature and momentum to become a global force for matching up people who want to put the spare moments in their lives to more impactful use, with worthy causes who need a small volunteering task completed.
