After you’ve created a profile, choose from a variety of causes you care about, such as Animal Welfare or Social Service.
And then you’re done!
With this app, you can look through an extensive list of volunteering or donation opportunities offered by hundreds of organisations, based on your customised interests.
Whether you want to volunteer for one-off projects or commit to something more long-term, there will always be something for you - so you don’t have to worry about any commitment issues that you might have.
You can also read about inspiring stories that will make you go awww, such as how this ex-nurse turned prawn mee hawker returned to nursing to help fight COVID-19, complete with an “I want to help!” button that allows you to either donate to the cause or share the story.
Doing your part to give back to society can really be that simple. Now you have no more excuse of not knowing how to start your volunteering journey!
