Help From Home (Change the World in Just Your Pyjamas) is an initiative that promotes and encourages people to perform micro-volunteering actions. It does this by providing information on easy, no commitment micro-volunteering opportunities where the majority, if not all of the action can be performed from the comfort of a person's home. Almost all of the 500 plus actions/initiatives listed so far on the site will cost nothing or very little to complete and take no more than 30 minutes to accomplish. Some can even be performed in under 10 seconds without getting out of your favourite chair or pyjamas!
