Volunteerism Meme

I as tagged by Maddie Grant for the Volunteerism Meme to answer the following question that was originally posed by Peggy Hoffman:

"...how can we create volunteer jobs that don’t require being on a committee, a long-term commitment or gobs of time? So, share five short-term, ad-hoc volunteer jobs you’d love to have and then tag five more bloggers".

Here goes nuthin':

1. Create content for an association's blog for a month
2. Facilitate a discussion at an event
3. Provide feedback on an organization's web site and publications
4. Collect tangible donations for a local non-profit
5. Coach a youth basketball team (a little longer term than the rest, but I think it'd be fun!)

I am someone who likes serving on committees with lots of structure, so this was a little hard for me! However, I think the five things above are all ways to volunteer that I would enjoy, and are things that could be useful to organizations/associations who need the help!

I am tagging the following:

Jeff De Cagna
Patti Digh
Mickie Rops
Julie Hewitt

#3 is great idea and recently I was looking for a member in my own org to do just that ... I think if I add your great summation "I think the five things above are all ways to volunteer that I would enjoy, and are things that could be useful to organizations/associations who need the help!" in the ask, I'll get the help.
