Some of the biggest draws of Catchafire was that you can make an impact from home, that there are so many remote opportunities to volunteer, and that there are so many varying project lengths...I really love working with the different nonprofit partners I’ve met through Catchafire. I’ve met some really cool people that I’m now still working with outside of Catchafire.

I can find people who care about the same causes that I care about. We’re miles apart, but we still care about the same things, and it’s easier to connect with them. It’s almost like you’re building this foundation for them, and then the nonprofits get to build whatever they want over it. If I can contribute even a little bit to that effort, ensuring that my support amplifies their work, I will spend an extra hour of my time to help them.
