“Join Me”

Are you a Volunteer Manager wanting to encourage others to collectively microvolunteer?

Want a way to invite your friends & family to microvolunteer alongside you?

Are you an Activities Organiser wanting to inspire others to ‘do good’?

Feel passionate about a cause and want others to join you?

We work in tandem with PledgeBank, who’s tagline of ‘I will, if you will’ fits in snugly with our “Join Me” campaign.  PledgeBank have created a method to enable people to take part in an action, but only if a target number of pledges have been reached who have pledged into participating in that action. ‘Join Me’ is suitable for both individuals and organisations to encourage others to collectively microvolunteer and change the world for good!

How To Join Our ‘Join Me’ Campaign!

Pledgebank will automatically create a free webpage for you, entirely dedicated to your action. Promote it like crazy eg Twitter, Facebook.  You want people to join you, so make it happen!
