The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
We are an innovative nonprofit creating exciting new projects to help people. Our primary focus is on creating websites that help other nonprofits and their supporters raise money for and raise awareness of the projects they're doing. All nonprofits are able to use the tools we create for generating donations and raising awareness.
Some of the websites are focused on helping nonprofits in specific areas such as fighting modern day slavery. For example, we are creating this project to free slaves: http://www.virtualrailroad.org
We also create websites which provide resources and information related to psychology and spirituality. At present, we're creating two new websites related to spirituality, and we need one or two volunteers to help us search the Internet for information and compile the information for use on the websites.
Telecommuting virtually from anywhere in the world is possible. The times of day you do the work are totally flexible.
The information will be done on Google Docs (aka Google Apps), so you must either know how to use Google Docs spreadsheets or Excel (because it's very similar to Google Docs). Or you must be fairly quick at learning new apps. You don't need to know how to do any spreadsheet formulas, as we'll only be using it for compiling data, and not for any math. You only need to know basics such as how to move around a spreadsheet and enter information into cells.
One of the websites relates to general spirituality (experiencing the divine) and another relates to Christian spirituality. If you're interested, please let us know if you're interested in one or both. Please also tell us if you know the basics of Google spreadsheets, Excel or are good at learning new apps.
