The Internet affects our lives every day. Hardly any can spend a day without checking their mails or favourite social websites. One can find e-shopping, e-dating and e-books already. E-volunteering guarantees the future of the voluntary sector, which is why it is worth taking to it today.
“Yeah but I still don’t get the idea of this e-volunteering.” Everyone new to the e-volunteering feels the same about the project of virtual volunteering since we had started working on it. Remembering that, we made a great effort to create as clear definition of it as possible:
E-volunteering – voluntary tasks or work carried out either as a whole or partially via Internet on a computer accessible at home or elsewhere one has access to the Web. Although the work is done in the virtual reality, its results are notable to the real world.
Employee volunteering encompasses unpaid activities undertaken voluntarily by employees willing to help people in need (e.g. NGOs, various institutions and informal groups), commitment to which is supported by their employers (e.g. with financial or material support; a given company can also help its employees by means of giving them a day off, so that they can realize any undertaken voluntary activities).
Did you know that you can do some good for others during the lunch break or on your way home?
