We want to show the world who is microvolunteering and therefore who is changing the world. Help us with our ‘Pyjama Power’ campaign by taking some pics of yourself or your friends in your pjs holding up a sign stating, ‘I change the world in just my pyjamas!’ For more information, click here

6) Translators
We run a free microvolunteering consultancy service that uses various themed Guides to introduce the project. We’d like to expand our service to non-english speakers. So, we’re after native French, Spanish or Arabic speakers who would be willing to translate our Guides for us. Please Contact Us for more information.

7) Media Interviewees
Claim your 15 minutes of fame! We’re building up a database of people who have microvolunteered using the actions featured on our website and who don’t mind being interviewed (email or phone) by the media about their experiences, as and when they contact us for an article. Please Contact Us for more information.

8) Promoting Microvolunteering to Senior Citizens
We run a scheme called Help From Seniors which encourages senior citizens to consider microvolunteering as part of a meaningful activities session. Can you help us promote it? For more information, click here

We run a scheme called Help From School which encourages educators to consider including microvolunteering within a citizenship course. Can you help us promote it in your country? For more information, click here.

10) Promoting Microvolunteering Parties
We run a project called Microvolunteering Parties that encourages people to collectively microvolunteer in a party setting. It’s aimed at youth and we’re after someone to spread awareness of it.  For more information, click here.

11) Promoting Microvolunteering to Hospitals
We believe that microvolunteering can be participated in from a hospital bed and we’re looking for someone to conduct some research into this idea. This may lead on to a more expanded role in the future. For more information, click here.

12) Creative Promotion Ideas
Got an idea that will enhance or compliment the service we provide? Want to develop it with our help? Let us know about it and if we like it, well, welcome aboard! For more information, click here.

Testimonials

I stumbled across the Help From Home site when searching for volunteer opportunities and it has to be one of the best finds I have made. The service from the staff is second to none – so friendly and incredibly helpful and appreciative of any contribution made, no matter how big or small. The tasks themselves are varying; thus far I have been writing short microvolunteer articles which I have found to be a great way of making a contribution in my spare time. It has also made me feel I am doing something worthwhile and helping with whatever the cause may be in my own little way. In the course of researching the projects to complete, I have been able to contribute to a whole range of causes that I have felt passionate about. HFH is a truly laudable and invaluable site.
