We at Expatgiving, admire the commitment and passion our volunteers contribute to different non-profit organisations they are involved with. One of the volunteers we have recently been in touch with was Freddie of Cycling Without Age.
Originally from London, Freddie moved to Singapore in August 2015. Despite having a busy schedule with his full time job, Freddie decided to start working again with charities and nonprofits. He used to volunteer with Alcohol Awareness Committee and WWF when he was attending university back in the UK.
Many, if not most, expats find it hard to find ways to volunteer and work for a cause. Freddie was able to find a volunteer position that matches his background in information technology through Expatgiving. He now volunteers for Cycling Without Age as their Webmaster and has since helped in designing and updating their Singapore website.
Volunteering for non-profit organisations may sound like a daunting task. But there are a number of positions you can sign up for even if you have a full time job. At the end of the day, it’s not about how much you can give; what is important, is the willingness to reach out and give back - one good deed at a time.
