Digital Deeds

It is hard to find time during the work week to volunteer, so I knew it would be important to identify ways to perform random acts of kindness online.

UN Volunteers

Finding volunteer opportunities that fully utilize your skill set can be difficult. This website matches organizations and volunteers based skill and interest. Once you create a profile you can apply for opportunities. The application process seems overly involved, but I’m sure it helps the organizations select the right people.

Catchafire

Similar to the UN website, Catchafire utilizes the volunteer’s unique skill set. They seem to have a different scope for their opportunities, and it could be a great way to build your resume since it has more of a business focus. I haven’t found an opportunity I want to apply for yet, but I am keeping a close eye on the site.

unite4:good

I have been posting my random acts of kindness on Twitter, and unite4:good tweeted at me about likes4:good. It’s a great source of inspiration. I cannot wait to post about some of my good deeds, and support worthy needs.

This list is a great starting point as I build this philanthropy habit. It will be fun getting involved in these online communities.

If you have some spare time tonight, check out my all time favorite feel good website, Free Rice!
