Okay, so it’s clear from the recent New York Times’ article “The Busy Trap”, there are just not enough hours in the day and critical choices have to made in how we balance our time spent versus…say the money we need to earn to stay alive. One area I know I’ve completely neglected recently is volunteering in my community. Each weekend, I think this is it. I’ll go down to the children’s library or deliver meals to the elderly, yet something always comes up and leave me too busy. Thankfully, a site like Sparked.com exists. The site is pretty genius since it markets itself as a microvolunteering network.
Essentially, online volunteering may be the best option for us busy bees. You sign up and check off your areas of expertise, such as social media or web design in order to answer the numerous questions posted by various nonprofits. It’s a two for one really. You may not have the time to commit to volunteering on site in your neighborhood and most of today’s nonprofits just don’t have the spare funds to hire on extra support staff.
