fundraisers volunteer in-the-field ways to help from home

How you can help from home

The majority of us unfortunately don’t have the freedom to gallivant around the world, but no worries!  There is still plenty that can be done from the comfort of your own home.  We’re going to give you a couple of options to get the creative juices flowing, but we’re always open to new ideas.  If you come up with an idea about how you can help one or many of our projects let us know!

Get Started

1. Promote a Project

Feature your favorite GlobalGiving project(s) by just clicking "Spread the Word" in the "Share and Save" section of any project page. This will allow you to post a widget on your blog, Facebook, or you can send it to a friend through email.

2. Spread the World

Letting people know about a cause you believe in has never been easier.  With social media galore (Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc.) you can tell your social network what causes YOU believe in.  Post links, or widgets, or merely a comment to help spread the word about GlobalGiving.

A Little More Hands On

3. Plan an Event

Have fun while doing good.  Host a party, concert, event, or anything in between in the name of a project (or a few).  You can create a fundraiser so people know where to donate or where you are donating to.

4. Sell Things eBay Through MissionFish

It's eBay, but with a philanthropic twist.  Sell your junk (other's treasure) and have some or all of the proceeds go to GlobalGiving projects.  Check it out.

5. Make A Website

Do you have technical or web design experience? Help with all things web-related, whether it is helping GlobalGiving projects directly or just trying out our new tech stuff and helping us test ideas before they launch.  Shoot us an email if this sounds up your alley.

6. Volunteer your time

It’s sometimes hard to find the time to volunteer in person. But there’s no reason you need to be physically present to carry out effective volunteer work. With GlobalGivingTIME, an online volunteering platform, you can fit your volunteering around your schedule and still make a meaningful impact!
