In this moment there are many restrictions, however there are also many people in need, who can be encouraged and inspired by a simple altruistic action. Discover what you can do. Online volunteering is very real.

Our proposition

Online volunteering uses technology to help people remotely and do something for the society. You don’t need to be a hero to be an altruistic person: in this difficult time, supporting and connecting with people (via phone or video calls) is important.

Covid-19 emergency

Coronavirus emergency put us in a very difficult situation. However, helping others is not useful only for people who get helped, but also for the helpers. Many scientific studies show how behaving altruistically makes people happy and is useful to relieve stress.
