An Introduction to Micro-Volunteering: Part 1

December 8, 2010

We here at ChangeMachine gladly give credit where credit is due. We know that many people don’t even know about what Micro-Volunteering actually is, and if they have heard of it it’s just another gag worthy buzz word. But, being the center of our new business, it is important to show people that it isn’t just a fad. Micro-Volunteering is here to stay. In fact I am positive that it will revolutionize the way volunteering is done.

But giving credit where credit is due, ChangeMachine is not the inventor of micro-volunteering, the Extraordinaries are. They created Sparked.com, a network open to the public which is basically just a forum board for people to help out non profits by doing small tasks or just giving some advice. This is obvious inspiration for us, however we are actually quite a bit different. But for a brief introduction to micro-volunteering, I defer to Ben Rigby, co-founder of The Extraordinaries, at TEDxNASA
