Rachael Chong had a vision: to connect every business professional with the opportunity to volunteer for nonprofit organizations that matched their skills and interests. So Rachael started Catchafire, an organization that accomplishes just that. But Catchafire doesn’t just place people where help is needed, they ensure the charity you’re after is the perfect fit.
Besides the amazing opportunity Catchafire provides for nonprofits in need of helping hands, it also affords busy professionals the opportunity to keep their 9-to-5s (er, 9s?) but still do something for the greater good. Every match made is specifically designed to fit each person and organization’s needs, in the sense of work and time. There is an opportunity for every interest, from the technology-obsessed computer geek to the shopaholic fashionista.
Catchafire is consistently updating their project options. Since its inception, Catchafire has donated thousands of hours of volunteer time and even more money in services via the professionals they match. There’s no better time to start helping than the holiday season, so warm someone’s heart with Catchafire now.
