Our mission is for every person who uses social media- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and more- to use their social networks for good by posting at least one post a week that focuses on bettering the world. Post the information of a special nonprofit, a link to informative websites, persuasive posts rallying friends and family to donate or volunteer, and include it in the #TodayImAwareProject !

The Easiest Network To Connect With Local Volunteer/Philanthropist Groups

Another resource that may be too far off of your daily radar- if you haven’t yet, you have to now- visit Meetup.com. No, its not a dating site!  As the picture above shows, it is the easiest way I have ever seen to connect with people and groups that have similar interests to your own. Depending on what city you’re in, there can literally be hundreds of groups and thousands of individuals near you using this resource- chances are you’ll find an interest group you’ll fall in love with. Another point, as the website is quick to point out- “Sometimes the best Meetup group is the one YOU start”!

If you don’t know where to start, if you’re an established philanthropist/activist with experience to share, or if you just want to find people who share your interests and are doing something about it, check Meetup.com. I suggest searching for “Volunteer” and watching the list of local groups grow. Do you have a good experience with this site? Any advice to give or stories to share?

A Force of Its Own

Of all the Buyongiveone products you can find on our topic lists, and all the donations you can contribute to these life changing organizations, there is nothing quite like getting your hands around a tangible project of your own. Have you had a chance to clean a park? Ease the pains of hunger of someone working to get their lives back on track? Have you watched the spark of your own passions light in the eyes of child needing a hero and mentor?

If you have not been sifting through the piles of enticing positions on VolunteerMatch.org you are missing out. With clear categories of causes to browse, its too easy to find the position you have a heart for. However, one of the best features I’ve found is the unique option to either find volunteer options locally or to browse tons of virtual opportunities. Yes- that does mean there are literally thousands of ways you can make a difference in the world while never leaving your own physical comfort zone.

So take a minute today to consider some of these opportunities, type VolunteerMatch.org rather than Facebook into your browser, and share with me, with friends, with anyone what you find!
