Microvolunteering means doing short, bite-sized activities that benefit society or the environment.  It's usually things that anyone can do in just a few minutes, perhaps from the comfort of your sofa or whilst waiting for a bus.

A few examples:

  • Knit, draw or make something to send to someone in need
  • Sign a petition 
  • Share a charity's page on Facebook or retweet them on Twitter
  • Send a letter or email to your local MP in support of a charity or local community campaign
  • Tag animals in photographs to help with conservation projects
  • Play games that help with scientific research or generate donations, such as freerice.com - an online quiz that donates rice to help combat hunger and malnutrition  
  • Map points of interest on planets and asteroids

And much more... For ideas and inspiration get in touch with your local Volunteer Centre.
