  • Public Health Statistics Volunteer, Forest Fire Prevention Derivatives, CrowdDoing

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Public health forest fire statistics volunteer. Prevention derivatives are a framework to address what would otherwise become Tragedies of the Commons.***. Risks of calamity are spread across many stakeholders, from companies to insurers to governments and individuals. Prevention Derivatives are a strategy for each stakeholder to take their fair share of responsibility for the prevention of these risks. Risks are preventable through combinations of social innovations that range from new to long-standing, proven approaches. Prevention Derivatives are designed for each stakeholder [contingent payers] to pay, if they so choose, only for the risk prevention savings that materialize for them. For example, If stakeholders who face forest fire risks can collaborate to finance the prevention of these risks through social innovation, all stakeholders can be better protected. Similarly, stakeholders who face flooding risks due to the degradation of coral reef health collaborate to finance the prevention of these risks through social innovation, all stakeholders can be better protected.

What if every person could get help when they experienced a microaggression or feared being fired or had exciting job offers to choose from but couldn't make a decision? How would that change someone's economic opportunity? Empower Work is the first anonymous, immediate, third-party support that puts the employee first. We envision a world where every person can have an accessible advocate to support their professional journey and equip them with the skills to successfully handle complex work challenges.

  • Community Wellness Checks - Online Computer Texting

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Community Wellness Checks through Computer Texts We are seeking volunteers to help in an arc of grassroots organizing that begins with relational outreach through wellness checks. In the first iteration, we will reach out to 70K people across Idaho. Texts are auto formatted, but we are also engaging in real conversations with people. You can spend as little or as much time volunteering as you like from 9am to 8pm in the comfort of your own home. Protecting and advocating for each other is at the heart of what we do. We are grateful to be in community with you ALL ! We will navigate this difficult time together, and if we do it well, we will become stronger because of it. More than ever before people are craving connection and community. We may never know another moment that holds such possibility for making meaning and shifting worldview, but we must act quickly and at scale to step into this space that is quickly being filled by extremist ideology, conspiracy theories and focused anti-government rhetoric that threatens the future of our democracy and the lives and wellbeing of this and future generations. We have design a texting program that can be used from your computer. This outreach is part of an arc of organizing that necessarily starts with one-on-one relationship building to meet the scope and scale of the work ahead of us. In this first phase, we are not asking anyone to do anything, simply giving them access to resources and opportunities they need. Each contact will be given a link to our website and critical links to direct services and emergent need at the state level and national resource links on COVID19, and links to TAKE ACTION on our shared campaigns as People's Action. We updating our content regularly to reflect the events taking place virtually through our national partners. By building relationships we can bring people into virtual community spaces, and engage in authentic conversations about the policies that have led us to this moment and exacerbated the pain that is impacting people differently. The response has been overwhelming and people are genuinely grateful to know that we are checking in and working hard for them and their families. A great many have taken it upon themselves to deepen their engagement by interacting with our website and reaching out. Volunteers have said this has been healing for them too.

  • Coordinator/ Arts/Crafts/Activities for homeless children.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Mon, May 18, 2020 - Fri, July 10, 2020

    Project Hawai’i, Inc. is a nonprofit organization run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations. Our mission is to help homeless children succeed and escape their cycle of poverty. We run a free summer educational program here on the islands of Hawai'i. With Covid we are not sure we will be able to run this as planned. Our plan is to provide our homeless keiki with fun activities that keep their minds active over the summer break. (if we can provide camp, we will still use your donation, so no worries!!) With this in mind, we are seeking those who would like to put together packets. (great project for youth groups to do as well, or clubs, etc.) These can be of your choice. (but we do ask not to be religious based, we have many different cultures on our island). Because we won't be able to really assist the children with their activities, we need them to be simple assembly and individually separated for their use. Fun easy paper crafts, mixed mediums, even recycled material projects are perfect. Without photos this is going to be a bit more complicated to explain. So, please feel free to connect with me for photos of some samples. Our children are young and some have emotional and behind socially. Crafts should be geared towards K-2nd grade. 4-7 years old REQUIREMENTS: 1. Will need to provide a total set of 24 projects if not gender specific. If geared towards male or female, then we need 12 of each. 2. Each craft/project will need to have all the supplies needed to complete. In most cases this will be glue, colors, etc. You need to include this in you packet. These children are homeless and most will not have access to such items on hand. So, if crayons are needed, you can put a few different colors in each bag, not the whole box per child. Glue sticks work perfect as well. **** As well, you will need to prep the materials. For example, say you are making a paper collage fish, please cut out the fish, pre cut the fun paper shapes that they are using to glue on, and include the glue stick and a googly eye. (a perfect example of these style crafts is the way Oriental Trading presents their crafts) 3. Each project needs to have all the pieces in the package with a photo copy of what the completed project is to look like. Imagine if you are the child and have limited access to even parental support, and have this package in front of you to create a fun project. This is how it needs to be presented. 4. Please connect with us of what your project is, so we can be expecting it. 5. Please mail your packets to Project Hawai’i, Inc. P.O. Box 1844, Kea'au, HI 96749-1844 before July 10th Mahalo for your consideration to help our homeless children learn and grow over this long summer break they are experiencing.

    Not-for-profit and government partner organizations are in need of homemade fabric (a/k/a crisis) masks to prevent the spread of COVID among vulnerable populations such as the elderly and disabled. While these are NOT medical-grade masks, they offer more protection than having nothing at all. The video link below also gives ideas for alternate supplies, for example, if you don’t have the ¼" elastic. OnPoint-TV You Tube: Making a Face Mask (Healthcare workers have requested the pleated mask with opening) https://youtu.be/M3Dm1NKoqfA If you are already making masks and have a preferred pattern, feel free to use it. LIST OF SUPPLIES & LINK TO YOUTUBE VIDEO FOR MAKING MASK: 100% cotton fabric 9"x15" End Casing (2) 2 ½"x5" Metal nose piece- twist tie or pipe cleaner: about 2" (optional) Elastic - ¼"x9" (or smaller width elastic) AGE REQUIREMENTS: Ages 14 - adult, beginner or advanced sewing skills. Students may get service hours for school. It is always wise to confirm in advance with your school that they will accept this as a project. IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ: Tracking and reporting the time you spend on this project, is almost as Important the masks themselves. Because your service for this project is in response to the COVID-19 crisis, your service hours on this project will also be reported by us to FEMA. Disaster/Crisis volunteer head count and hours served are calculated by us into a dollar value for the County’s disaster reimbursement request to FEMA. This is important to you as a tax payer, because the County is able to be a good steward of tax dollars and leverage or match your crisis engagement, as a means of diminishing the overall COVID cost burden on tax funds. (Optional for adults - Required for Students) - Take or have someone take pictures of you as you work on different stages of this project. You can email them in to us with your time sheet. We love to see what you have been making and schools like the pictures as support that you worked on the project! WHAT TO DO WITH COMPLETED MASKS? Email me your time sheet, be sure to have your physical address on it. For those Mask Makers living local, we will have an agency representative get with you and coordinate collection. For those Mask Makers living out of the commuting area of Polk County, FL - when you register to help with this assignment, we will give you an address for mailing them to us.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Thu, April 23, 2020 - Tue, June 30, 2020

    The COVID-19 virus has created a huge deficit between the supply and demand of many critical products. Due to lack of essential resources, such as diapers, many families are left unable to provide for their children. Our community partners are struggling to meet the growing requests for diapers during this difficult time. In response, Jersey Cares has established the Diaper Drive Program to provide diapers to families who do not have access to them. As a collection site, volunteers will have the opportunity to provide diapers to families in need throughout the state. If you are an individual or group looking to donate to the Diaper Drive Program, please express interest below. Once interest has been expressed, Jersey Cares will send volunteers the program guidelines and will be able to match donors to the closest agency recipient. Following CDC regulations, volunteers have the opportunity to give donations directly to participating agencies through a contact-less drop-off. This is an ongoing initiative - a deadline will be communicated if/when this immediate need is met.

Use different colors on the front and the back (inside facing) part of the mask so that the sides can easily be recognized. Step 3: Mail and Ship Sewn Cloth Face Coverings Place your finished face coverings directly in a box or envelope, seal with tape, and once taped shut please do NOT open the box or envelope again. Use the mail service of your choice - USPS, UPS, Fed Ex.

  • Million Mask Mayday - Sewing Volunteer

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Wed, April 1, 2020 - Tue, June 30, 2020

    We are welcoming fabric masks from our community to help medical staff during COVID-19, in response to the mask shortage. Orders for standard/disposable masks are on long back-orders, due to both demand and supply chain issues. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Sewing experience is not necessary, but making the masks with a sewing machine is required, so that they can be washed and withstand the need to reuse, if necessary. If you can help, please respond to this need. Once you register below, we will send you a Million Mask Mayday toolkit that includes: face mask patterns, a list of acceptable materials, and where materials can be purchased online. PLEASE NOTE: Jersey Cares is working in collaboration with Million Masks Mayday to provide these homemade masks to healthcare professionals to be used as a last resort, or in lower risk situations, due to the extreme shortage of N95 respirators and surgical masks needed in response to COVID-19. Please see below for specific guidelines from the CDC's Crisis Strategy section: "When No Facemasks Are Available, Options Include: Healthcare personnel (HCP) use of homemade masks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face." The health and safety of volunteers and our community is our top priority. If you feel vulnerable to exposure or do not feel comfortable volunteering at this time, please refrain from doing so. To help us care for one another, we recommend volunteers follow these guidelines: Please do not register as a Sewer for the Million Mask Mayday project if you are sick or someone in your household is sick. Please wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. For additional resources and recommendations please visit: https://covid19.nj.gov/
