Feature Articles for the Media
Are you involved in the newspaper / magazine industry? If so, we’d like to introduce ourselves to you concerning a regular article about microvolunteering that you could include in your publication. The articles would feature a brief resumé of a particular microvolunteer action that your readers could participate in.
What is Microvolunteering?
These are ‘actions that benefit a worthy cause, where the main bulk of the task can be completed on demand in one or more sessions of upto 30 minutes, either from a person’s home or on the go’.
The common reaction upon learning about such actions is of intrigue, surprise and ‘I didn’t know you could do that’. There is an inherent goodness in most people and if they knew they could do something meaningful without impacting into their time or finances, then most people would at least give it a go. You would be providing a very valuable public service that has the potential to benefit so many worthy causes and would be eagerly read by your readership.
Help From Home has prepared over 50 short articles that are very suitable for inclusion in a newspaper / magazine as a regular feature spot, possibly entitled ‘Change The World In Just Your Pyjamas’.
