Technology is advancing rapidly, and some folks enjoy having the latest and greatest version of their favorite tech-toys. There is no reason to let last season's version go un-used or un-loved. Share it with and elderly, disabled, or homeless person in need.
Helpertunity has been busy advocating for more Care Facilities and Supportive Housing Shelters to become WiFi enabled, so that their clients can connect with distant friends and family. However, it has been heartbreaking to see that some residents and clients do not have loved ones or friends, even at a distance, who are able to connect with them online. Volunteers are needed to be "Virtual-Visitors" and "Online Game-Pals" for these disconnected or foster-care elderly and disabled persons.
Great communication, media-literacy, and tools are essential to the growth and success of every person and organization today. It is possible to show elderly, disabled, and homeless persons that you care about their needs by using your talents "behind the scenes" to help an organization that helps them. Helpertunity appreciates the talents of the technology-savvy individuals who have already supported our efforts. Our online-outreach continues to expand, with upcoming training seminars, online-courses, and advanced web-site projects already in development.
Helpertunity is an official 501c3 public charity, and therefor is able to accept and oversee volunteers, and un-paid interns, for community service hours. If you are interested in completing service hours by assisting Helpertunity with events, projects, technology support, media design, or administrative tasks, please contact Eileen Callejas directly at 407-234-4768 / Eileen@Helpertunity.org.
