Reasons to Organise
Recently there have been more and more ground up movements or informal groups who have come together to do good! Let us share with you our motivation to organise!
TAKE OWNERSHIP of A CAUSE THAT WE CARE ABOUT
Whilst the charities address to most social needs, there can still be gaps in the services provided. As active citizens, we decided to do take ownership of a cause that we passionately care about and create a ground up movement! Hopefully we will be able to make a difference in the community that we live in!
If we were to volunteer and not organise, we would create 24 hours of service hours to our community per event (4 hours X 6 of us). However, if we were to organise, we would be able to create a greater impact on the community ~ 160 hours per event (4 hours X 40 volunteers)!
SHARE OUR SKILLS
Quite a few of our friends have told us that they want to volunteer, but don't know what they can do or where they should go. Also, we realised that not everyone enjoys being an organiser so we decided to share our knowledge, skills, experiences and resources to create bite-sized yet purposeful volunteering opportunities to promote greater volunteerism!
