International Microvolunteering Day is celebrated on April 15 of every year. International Microvolunteering Day creates awareness about the micro-volunteering concept and how simple bite-sized actions of individuals can make the world a better place. On Microvolunteering Day, volunteers take easy, suitable, and bite-sized actions often from home, in support of a worthy cause. The main aim of Microvolunteering Day is to raise awareness about these kinds of easy, short, and simple actions and to encourage people to get involved in these bite-sized actions.
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” – Elizabeth Andrew
History of International Microvolunteering Day
International Microvolunteering Day is a great opportunity for enthusiastic micro-volunteering platforms; the volunteer implicated organisations and individuals to unite together in a coordinated effort to indicate the empowering capacity of the micro-volunteering idea. Microvolunteering is a simple concept, It gives volunteers some simple tasks that can be done anywhere, anytime, and at your convenience. Microvolunteering can include anything from signing a petition or tagging photos on the internet to help the visually disabled or retweeting news to participate in a flashmob etc. The volunteers don’t want to go through any application or go for a training process, the micro-volunteering tasks will take only a few minutes to complete, and it doesn’t need any continuing commitment.
