Volunteer in your pyjamas!

How ‘virtual volunteers’ are changing the face of volunteering

Think of volunteering and you picture people delivering Meals on Wheels or helping out in a charity op shop. But in today's busy world, you'll also see volunteers in their pyjamas! 

More and more people are starting to volunteer their time online or on the phone. It’s called ‘virtual volunteering’ and you can participate any time, day or night. It’s been popular for some time in other parts of the world, but is only now starting to take off in Australia.

With today’s International Volunteer Day (Dec 5th), the charity DoSomething are calling on busy Australians to think about becoming a virtual volunteer. Their DoSomethingNearYou.com.au website is now listing virtual volunteering opportunties. View the media release to see what you can do or visit: http://dsny.com.au/vol_day.
