Orange Volunteering App

You can get applications to do pretty much everything nowadays, most of them are focused on the individual though and on what your phone can do for you.

This is why it is so refreshing to see the new application from mobile network Orange that helps you do something for other people by volunteering. The “do some good” application allows you to easily give time to charitable causes from your mobile. It gives you the opportunity to do good deeds such as filling in a survey for the Samaritans or help kids in the Cybermentors chatrooms.

The full list of charities that you are able to work for on “do some good” are: Samaritans, Groundwork UK, CyberMentors, SCAN, Future Morph, photofoundation, World Clean Air Forest Initiative (WCAFI), Young Foundation, Sustrans, Play England & The Geography Collective, Sustainable Restaurant Association and Practical Action. So it gives you a large choice over just what you can do and considering that research shows that plenty on this people would love the opportunity to volunteer if only their timetable would allow it, this app makes it a lot easier for people to do just this.

The application has even received praise from the highest level, with Prime Minister David Cameron hailing the app and seeing it as the perfect vehicle for the coalitions government’s “big society” initiative. The PM said “Millions of people who don’t currently volunteer would like to do so if they had the time and information to make it as easy as possible. ‘Do Some Good’ is a great way of tapping into this huge pool of untapped volunteering energy.”

So it seems that the new app, available on iPhone and coming out across other platforms later in the year, is set to be a big winner for both Orange and society. Also, if you complete over 4 hours of volunteering through the app you get to join the Orange RockCorps Collective and are eligible for rewards like gig tickets. You can’t say fairer than that can you!

    I don’t actually treatment how or after i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box an individual day. A nice, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up for your individuals who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious nature of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival with the letter and the words on the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like most effective about The Rumpus is that I never understand what I’ll examine that day. Or if there isn’t really one that day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t obtain anything to say or there was far too much going on.
