Helping the Helper

There are often people that we can identify as being stand-out “Helpers” in each of our communities. We often admire the work that they are doing but don’t know that we ourselves could take on such a role. But, maybe what we do have the capacity to do is to help these Helpers to be able to spread their efforts further. Here are 4 ways that you can “Help the Helpers” in your communities.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller

  1. Be encouraging- Show recognition to those you see making an impact big or small. This encouragement may be what that person needs to keep showing up! 
  2. Ask where they could use support- this may give you a smaller role in serving that you have the capacity to help with. 
  3. Support financially- If you don’t have the time but do have the financial resources these “Helpers” will have great insights into where in the community a financial donation would go the furthest. 
  4. A small gesture- Bring over a meal, offer to watch kids, help fold a load of laundry, a simple gesture to show support that may allow the “Helper” a break to recharge or more time to give back.

Helper Helper is a platform designed to support the Helper of Helpers. By providing a simple techonoogy that allows for an easy way to coordinate and manage volunteering we hope more efforts can be focused on communites than the cumbersome task of mangaging volunteers.
