The days of volunteering simply for that “warm and fuzzy” feeling are over! With the start of the New Year came the launch of Do Good, Get Rewards, the nation’s first volunteer rewards program, created to encourage social activism. Based in Atlanta, the Do Good Get Rewards program and social networking site provides a simple system for non-profit organizations to post volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers and track volunteer hours. The program provides non-profit organizations with a simple, free way to show appreciation to their volunteers and provide incentives to grow their volunteer base. At Do Good Get Rewards, non-profit organizations validate volunteer hours through a quick and easy process. Volunteers then earn reward points for the hours they work and redeem them for featured rewards such as vacations, gift cards, and hotel and restaurant certificates. There is no cost to join the network.
According to Volunteering in America 2009: State and City Trends and Rankings, a report released by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a total of 61.8 million Americans volunteered through an organization in 2008, up one million from the previous year. The goal of the Do Good Get Rewards program is to express appreciation to those millions of Americans who make a difference everyday and encourage even greater numbers to donate their time and talents. Nonprofits that have already taken advantage of this rewards system include Girl Scouts of Atlanta, Zoo Atlanta, Dress for Success and Volunteer Match, among dozens of others.
