“The Extraordinaries” – Volunteering In An Instant!
Monday, 11th May 2009 at 5:06 pm

In an age of instant everything here’s a new take on volunteering – via the mobile phone.

A group in the US calling itself "The Extraordinaries" has developed what they describe as a new approach to volunteering.

Their mission is to convert spare time into social good via a mobile phone application (which is still being fine tuned).

The Co-Founders of The Extraordinaries are Jacob Colker and Ben Rigby who say they have developed micro volunteering opportunities via an i-phone that can be done in just 20 minutes.

The App is set to deliver short, simple, and on-demand volunteer opportunities. According to their website these opportunities can involve volunteering to help Not for Profits translate information from English to helping NASA map craters on the surface of Mars!!!!

And while the Application is not yet available the developers have posted a ‘how it will work’ on Youtube. Check it out at youtube.com/theextraordinaries
