International Microvolunteering Day
People all over the world are often inspired to want to do something for a worthy cause, but they simply don’t know where to start. That’s because all of us tend to focus on the big acts of volunteering — the types that make the news. Fortunately, there’s another way that people can take action that’s just as good as the big sweeping acts of charity.
Microvolunteering allows people to take smaller actions, many times from the comfort of their own homes, to support a cause that they believe in. It’s something that allows everyone to take action and that’s why people try their hands at doing it on International Microvolunteering Day. This holiday falls on April 15th every year and allows everyone to support the causes they love.
The History Of Microvolunteering Day
In 2008, an organization called Help From Home was created. This organization promoted the concept of people taking small, manageable actions to help support their favorite cause.
To spread the news of this concept that they called micro-volunteering, they decided to create Microvolunteering Day in 2014. This holiday attracted thousands of people from all over the world. This holiday has been celebrated ever since.
Observing Microvolunteering Day
The purpose of this holiday is for people to take manageable actions toward helping out their favorite charity or cause. People can write articles for websites, spread the news of a particular cause through social media, or even volunteer at their local retirement home, or homeless shelter.
People can spread the news of this holiday through social media and encourage other people to also support their favorite causes by taking the time to spread the news of this cause using the hashtag #MicrovolunteeringDay on social media.
This is a great way to help encourage change and to get all of us on the same page. So, let’s go out there and support the organizations that we support.
