Or maybe, in times of disaster you’re left wondering how to help. The new disaster portal on All for Good allows you to sign up anytime to offer your skills and expertise. When a disaster strikes, Points of Light and its partners will be able to search the registry and reach out to you.

It’s quick and easy to run a search. A look at what’s available in the Washington, D.C., area today, for example, shows a clean-up project at the historic C&O Canal, an opportunity to become a volunteer gardener at the U.S. National Arboretum, a classroom restoration event and more.

All for Good is one of the world’s largest free, online marketplaces matching volunteers with opportunities to serve. Users of All for Good generated nearly 50 million project searches in the past year. Tens of thousands of organizations – including United Way, AARP, Idealist.org, the White House (Serve.gov), the Corporation for National and Community Service and many of the nation’s leading volunteer action centers – use All for Good to recruit volunteers.

At any given time, there are enough regularly updated opportunities available in All for Good for more than 1 million volunteers in nearly every zip code in the continental United States to find a way to make a difference. Click here for more information.

Try out AllforGood.org today and get out there! And please share with us your experiences using the site at listen@pointsoflight.org.
