95% of non-profits need more skilled labor. Managing volunteers is a lot of work. Companies use micro-volunteering to deepen employees engagement. I love this idea because micro-volunteering is virtual, engages people based on their skills and/ or interests, can be completed in a short time, maximizes the impact of a volunteer's participation at no cost to non-profits and it's easy to sign up online.

Check out the Groupon Earth Day Challenge and support your favorite green charity on CrowdRise. The campaign that raises the most money through May 15th will get an extra $25,000 from Groupon. Second place gets $15,000 and third place gets $10,000.
Here’s how this works
- Donate to any green charity and then join their team and help em’ fundraise.
- Or, start a fundraiser for your own favorite green cause.
Facts tell, stories that touch people's hearts sell. As a non-profit that tries to engage its audience, it's easy to quote facts and figures. Reason appeals to 45% of people, but emotion appeals to the rest. Creating a "must-read" blog, email or story is not something that most people are good at. If you're stuck on what to write, don't despair. Check out Katya's Non-Profit Marketing Blog. http://www.nonprofitmarketingblog.com
