“In this time of economic distress, we need service and volunteering more than ever to build a new foundation for growth,” states First Lady Michelle Obama. Non-profits rely heavily on volunteers, but more than one-third of those who volunteer one year do not donate their time the next year. That adds up to an estimated $38 billion in lost labor according to the 2009 Stanford Social Innovation review.
The nation’s first online volunteer rewards program, DoGoodGetRewards.com, wants to be part of the solution. The program was designed to give non-profit organizations a simple, free way to demonstrate appreciation to their volunteers and provide incentives to grow their volunteer base. At Do Good Get Rewards, non-profit organizations validate volunteer hours as quickly as accepting friends on Facebook. Volunteers earn reward points for the hours they work and redeem them for featured rewards such as vacations, gift cards, and hotel and restaurant certificates.
“We want to support the efforts of the incredibly hardworking organizations that make a difference in our communities in every way we can”, states Founder Tammy Allen”. The volunteer rewards program and social networking site provides a simple system for non-profit organizations to post volunteer opportunities, track volunteers and their hours. There is no cost for Non Profits or volunteers to become members of the Do Good Get Rewards program.
The goal of Do Good Get Rewards program is to express appreciation to those millions of Americans who make a difference everyday and encourage even greater numbers to donate their time and talents.
