7 Reasons Why You Should Do A Virtual Service Activity
Are you looking for a way to give back to the community but have a busy schedule? Virtual Service Activities are a great and flexible way to make a difference and safely volunteer from anywhere. Together We Rise created a variety of Virtual Service Projects to help enrich all aspects of a child’s life. Here are 7 reasons why doing a Virtual Service Activity is a great option for you.
1. Flexible Volunteering That Fits Your Schedule
Do you feel like your life is too busy to volunteer? When you’re feeling overwhelmed with the demands of life, Virtual Service Activities offer an easy way to give back and can fit into any busy schedule. Our kits only require 1 – 3 hours of your time to help provide support and enrichment to a child in foster care! You can work on the kit in between daily activities or multitask while watching your favorite weekly show. With a few hours, you can make an impact in your community.
2. Safely Volunteer From Your Home
From the safety and comfort of your home, you can make a difference in someone’s life. Curl up on the couch and decorate a Birthday Kit to help make a child’s birthday extra special. Or enjoy the ease of staying at home with your family and decorating a Virtual Service Activity with your children. Volunteering to help your community has never been easier.
3. Good For Your Mind and Body
Volunteering can help you reduce stress, which if left unchecked could negatively affect your mental and physical health overtime. Doing a positive activity and focusing on helping others can help clear your mind and recenter yourself. So instead of worrying about work deadlines, make some “you time” to decorate a Virtual STEM kit and help enrich the education of a child in foster care.
4. Brings A Sense Of Fulfillment To Your Life
Are you looking for a sense of purpose in your life? Doing a Virtual Service Activity can boost your self-confidence and give you a sense of accomplishment. Whether it’s just one small act of kindness or many more, your actions can make a positive impact in the world!
5. Have Some Fun While Making An Impact
Why not get your friends and family together for an evening of fun? Invite your group over for a Sweet Case kit party and catch up over drinks and decorating with colorful fabric pastels! When you order a Virtual Service Activity from Together We Rise, you will receive a hands-on activity to decorate and personalize for a child in foster care. Imagine their smile when they see your colorful creation!
6. Builds a Sense Of Community
Volunteering and working together towards a common goal can help people better connect with each other. Talk to your company about doing a Team Build event with a Virtual Service Activity. This can be a great way to build friendships with your fellow coworkers and create a positive work environment.
7. Inspires Giving
Teaching your children to help others through acts of kindness can be rewarding in itself and helps build towards a better future. Try decorating a Superhero Kit with your family to open up the discussion of helping others and doing the right thing.
As you can see, taking the time to spare an hour or two to sponsor a Virtual Service Activity is a great option to make a positive impact in your community and has many personal benefits of reducing stress and giving your life a sense of fulfillment.
Please consider sponsoring one of our Virtual Service Projects and getting your friends, family and community involved in volunteering. And if you can’t participate in a Virtual Service Activity yourself, please donate to Together We Rise, so we can continue enriching the lives of children in foster care. Thank you for your support!
