Be a Part of the Virtual Change Movement

Philanthropic and non-profit volunteer work have always played a big role in my life. Well, I won’t lie, at one point, while attending a Catholic all-girls school it was a mandatory part of our curriculum to volunteer about eight hours per week to a local non-profit or philanthropy. I chose to become a candy-striper at a hospital walking distance from my house. My experience volunteering at the hospital was a lot more depressing than philanthropic, however, at the end of the day, the daily stories I read to the elderly, the special apple sauce runs I would make for the sick, or the comfort and attention I would provide the premature babies were all special moments and experiences for me that would change my life forever.

Since my candy-striper days, I’ve volunteered for organizations such as Future Leaders of America, The Woodland Mentorship Program, Enterprise for High school Students (EHSS), Habitat for Humanity, Miami Children’s Hospital, The Red Cross, Green Peace, and the Mexico City earthquake disaster relief program. Each providing a deep, humbling and educational experience, I feel that volunteering for non-profits fulfills and enriches my soul and day-to-day life. It has become an important part of my daily schedule, even a priority, to give back to under-developed communities, the environment, to those less fortunate than I, and helping provide immediate assistance to victims devastated by a natural disaster.

Below are a few virtual philanthropies that I suggest you check out. They are creating massive, global change by bridging the gap between technology and non-profit efforts. These organizations are making it seamless to provide awareness, assistance, and fund raising on an accessible, scalable and social level. Become a part of the Virtual Change Movement!
