This is my second week of working in a charity shop. So far, I’ve helped to keep the shop in order and steamed items of clothing in the stockroom before putting them on the rails. (Not sure if they get washed beforehand though… Hmmm, I may have to ask.)
I only volunteer once a week on Wednesdays for a few hours.
I will tick this goal off as ‘completed’ at the end of this month, but I will continue to work in the shop. 1 week ago
My first day volunteering in a charity shop was spent working on the shop front. I had to organize and rearrange the clothes on the racks, basically keeping everything in order. 2 weeks ago
I had to read all the Health and Safety (etc.) booklets before I got started.
Will start volunteering next week. 3 weeks ago
Have tried getting in touch with a few organizations over the past 6 months but most things don’t seem to be a good fit. Will keep searching volunteer sites for something. 3 weeks ago
How I did it: It was an experience where I could combine my passion and profession. It was totally worth it.
I did it to connect with the local community.
At the moment, I'm not volunteering, but I definitely will again. Right now I'm keeping my eyes open to find the right organization for me. Read how I did it… 4 weeks ago
I increased my volunteering from 4 hours per week to 8 hours per week. 1 month ago

Well volunteering is not always ideal for everyone, as we all have bills to pay and mouths to feed. For those that do want to volunteer, it is quite easy to get started. This is how I accomplished my goal.
1) Researched various volunteer opportunities in my neighbourhood
2) Got accepted and went to an orientation
3) My references didn’t get back on time
4) Started from scratch with my search
5) My sisters former co-worker presented her with an amazing opportunity, and she reffered me
6) I got accepted and got started! :)
Just apply to places you would like to volunteer at, and keep in mind the more you apply to the better! Volunteer opportunities take time to finally go through, and the process might be lengthy at some places. BE PATIENT! Good Luck! :) 1 month ago
