ConvenientIt's volunteerism that fits into your schedule when you have time - typically (but not necessarily) via an internet connected device such as a personal computer or mobile phone. In practice, to achieve this level of convenience, there is often no training or vetting necessary by the nonprofit.Bite-sizedVolunteer tasks are broken into small(-ish) pieces, so that you can complete a task in the time you have available (whatever that time may be).CrowdsourcedThe nonprofit that needs help asks a large(-ish) group for assistance. Micro-volunteers who have the time, interest, and skills (ideally), and who may be previously unknown to the nonprofit, do the work.Network-managedThe time demands of the manager (e.g. a nonprofit staffer) are reduced by distributing as much of the project management and quality review as possible to the network of micro-volunteers. This work management method differs from a top-down model of project management.
Micro-actions can be conducted anywhere, at any time and so therefore people can control the environment in which they volunteer their time, thereby making it potentially safer than traditional volunteer opportunitiesMost micro-actions are non-committal, which means that one of the barriers that inhibits people to perform traditional volunteering, has now been stripped away. You can dip in and dip out whenever you wantPeople who are shy and uncomfortable with a group of strangers might feel more at home with micro volunteering as they can now volunteer in their own companyYou get more bang for your buck time wise. People who perform traditional philanthropy and who want to do more, now have the option to achieve more in between their traditional philanthropic commitmentsIt empowers people to realise they can make a difference, as they can now do something that benefits a worthy cause on their own terms, which gives them greater control over the difference they can makeYou can do it while watching telly, on the bus or in your pyjamas. You're not restricted to being at a certain place at a certain time anymore. Volunteering can go wherever you go.
