Give Something Back This Christmas And Volunteer With The Buengo App
As Christmas trees go up and our minds become preoccupied with festive worries (like where on earth you’re going to find that lego set that has already sold out absolutely everywhere), it’s hard to think about much else.
But Christmas is all about giving, and the festive period can be the busiest time of the year for many London charities. They rely heavily on volunteers, who ensure that they provide for the people they support and essential funds get raised. Whether it’s a few hours making up Christmas hampers or an afternoon collecting donations in a tube station, London is alive with goodwill.
So this festive period, why not set aside a little time and sign up for a volunteering opportunity near you – and share some of that Christmas cheer with someone less fortunate?
New app Buengo works with charities to post volunteering opportunities on their marketplace, so that people can easily find someone to help in their area. And, if you can’t find anything that suits you locally, there are even some opportunities that can be done from home, such as becoming a virtual befriender.
The app is super easy to use – just head to the marketplace and you’ll see all of the volunteering opportunities on offer (as well as all of the other things available on the Buengo marketplace, such as second-hand goodies and virtual items). You can find out more about the opportunity and the cause it supports by tapping on it, and even message the organiser directly if you have any questions. And, if you can’t find anything that suits you, you can post your volunteering services on the app explaining the kind of activity you’d be able to help with, and wait for a cause to contact you!
So, ready to spread that Christmas cheer? Download Buengo now to find out about all the volunteering opportunities near you and #DoSomethingGoodToday.
