A new type of volunteering is starting to attract media attention: micro-volunteering. It has gained momentum as a creative way to use mobile phones, but in reality it is much more than that. Mike Bright, the founder of Help from Home, a UK Web site focused entirely on micro-volunteering, shares his knowledge and unique perspective on this trend in this e-Volunteerism feature. Bright examines the quick nature of micro-volunteering actions, explores the quandaries surrounding the concept of micro-volunteering, and poses questions that need to be debated about the micro-volunteering arena.
