Calling All Changemakers
Think you can't make a difference? Think again.
It's all too common a conundrum: a well-meaning person wants to do something to change the world, but has no idea where to start. Life gets in the way, work tugs at our attention, kids need our time and energy, and there often isn't much left for world-shaking. But a clever consortium of talented folks have figured out a way -- using the internet, of course -- to harness your talent and use it to make a difference.
Catchafire gives professionals from all sorts of disciplines a one-stop opportunity to use their talents for good, pairing them with projects that make effective use of their skills and gifts. Whether your field is creative (design, writing, photography, film), fiscally-driven (sales, marketing, finance) or traditionally broad (strategy, entrepreneurship, legal, HR, PR), there's a pro bono project waiting for you to sink your teeth into it. In fact, Catchafire provides a veritable clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities for which you may not even have to leave your home or office. Administrative oversight is handled through the site itself, and its interface is as user-friendly as can be. Projects are searchable by discipline, cause and location.
Bringing cause-driven organizations together with talented folks whose abilities can help make them sing, this clever online hub gets videos produced, events planned, funds raised and all manner of projects completed for groups that are actively changing the world for the better. And just think: you can be a part of it, too, starting with the click of a mouse and a spark of inspiration. Ignite your talent for good by checking out Catchafire's website and matching your skills with a project.
