For press representatives & bloggers

Jayne and Susan are happy to help any media representative, including bloggers, who wishes to write an article or produce a webcast or podcast about virtual volunteering. We can help connect you to organizations who have virtual volunteering projects and to online volunteers themselves.

If you want to write or produce a feature story, blog, webcast or podcast about virtual volunteering - in general, or regarding a particular geographic area (a city, a region, a country), or with regard to a particular angle (environmental groups engaging with online volunteers, organizations focused on helping people in developing countries, etc.), Jayne and Susan, authors of The Last Virtual Volunteering Guidebook, are happy to help connect you to both appropriate organizations and volunteers to fit the angle of your story.

You can also look over this list of organizations cited in the book that involve online volunteers, and look over the members of the Virtual Volunteering LinkedIn group (virtual volunteering LinkedIn), to see what organizations are talking about their engagement with volunteers online.

If you would like to interview us, or to ask for advice or background for your story or blog, send an email to

For a celebrity angle, we recommend contacting Mick Foley, who volunteers online with RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), or the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which involves online volunteers in a variety of roles.

Before writing or producing a story or article about virtual volunteering, we suggest you read these two short pages:
  • Myths about virtual volunteering
  • History of virtual volunteering
