The Greatest Gift of All: Your Time and Talent

November 28, 2016

With the holiday season upon us and so many challenges facing the world, it’s never been more important for us to come together to make a difference in our communities.

At LinkedIn for Good, we are committed to connecting underserved communities to economic opportunity. One way we strive to do this is by galvanizing you, our members, to give your time and talent. And we know that many of you are open and ready to support your communities. In fact, more than 9 million members around the world have indicated on their LinkedIn profile that they want to volunteer. 

In that spirit, we are proud to announce our support of #GivingTuesday, a global movement that brings together people from around the world to celebrate and encourage giving back.  

We invite you to join us by giving your time and talent to help someone else. Visit LinkedIn’s Volunteer Marketplace to find a nonprofit board or skilled volunteer opportunity that fits your interests and expertise. Some of these opportunities are targeted based on where you live and others you can do virtually.

Here are just a few of the opportunities you can find on LinkedIn’s Volunteer Marketplace:

  • Become a virtual classroom speaker and teach entrepreneurial students about business plans with Nepris

  • Support patients going through their cancer journey as a Patient Access Volunteer with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

  • Help mentor a college student pursuing science, technology, engineering or mathematics with Great Minds in STEM

Imagine what we could accomplish if each of us volunteered just an hour of our time this holiday season. That would be over 5,700 years worth of volunteer time!

Sign up for an opportunity today to celebrate #GivingTuesday and if inspired, please donate to a cause you care about.
