I stumbled across the Help From Home site when searching for volunteer opportunities and it has to be one of the best finds I have made. The service from the staff is second to none – so friendly and incredibly helpful and appreciative of any contribution made, no matter how big or small. The tasks themselves are varying; thus far I have been writing short microvolunteer articles which I have found to be a great way of making a contribution in my spare time. It has also made me feel I am doing something worthwhile and helping with whatever the cause may be in my own little way. In the course of researching the projects to complete, I have been able to contribute to a whole range of causes that I have felt passionate about. HFH is a truly laudable and invaluable site.
