Interested in helping to shape the future of microvolunteering? We’re looking for people who can donate a bit of their time virtually, at their own convenience and in bite sized chunks – our very own microvolunteering opportunities (well, some of them are)!
What Roles Are Available?
1) Pyjama Power!
We want to show the world who is microvolunteering and therefore who is changing the world. Help us with our ‘Pyjama Power’ campaign by taking some pics of yourself or your friends in your pjs holding up a sign stating, ‘I change the world in just my pyjamas!’
Encourage others to check out the microvolunteering concept by using one of our standard Tweets below. Tweet to your hearts content!

3) Microvolunteer Action Database Article
Write up a microvolunteer action (max 150-ish words) for entry into our database. We’ve found the actions, we just need someone to compose a description about each one.
Help us spread the word about microvolunteering via our phenomenal powerfully persuading Pinterest pics (yeah we know that’s a bit OTT, but we’re biased)! Share our pics to your hearts content – please.
5) Share your Opinions
We’d like to know what you think about the concept of microvolunteering. You might help us shape our future direction!
6) Researching Senior Citizen Related Websites
We run a scheme called Help From Seniors which encourages senior citizens to consider microvolunteering as part of a meaningful activities session. Can you help us promote it?
7) Researching Education Related Websites
We run a scheme called Help From School which encourages educators to consider including microvolunteering within a citizenship course. Can you help us promote it?
8) Researching Microvolunteering in Hospitals
We believe that microvolunteering can be participated in from a hospital bed and we’re looking for someone to conduct some research into this idea. This may lead on to a more expanded role in the future. Would ideally suit a medical student.
9) Make a Short Video
We’re after people who can make a short (max 5 minute) video, expressing your views on what it’s like to microvolunteer, and what impact you’re making. We use these videos to spread awareness of the microvolunteering concept. Just let us know about your vid, and we’ll upload it to our YouTube Channel.

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.
