7 Virtual Ways Students in Ohio Can Give Back This Holiday Season

Everyone knows winter can be a hectic time of year. From finals to holiday shopping to parties, it sometimes feels like there is no time to do anything else! Thankfully, if you’re looking to give back this holiday season, but are crunched for time and resources, there are many ways to do so online.

Volunteer Virtually

VolunteerMatch, Catch Fire, and many similar sites have a ton of great listings for virtual volunteering opportunities that you can do from your kitchen table. Here are a few that might interest you.

1. Online Tutoring

Put your hard work from this past semester to great use by helping out younger students! Online tutoring covers many topics, so you can choose whichever one you excel at the most.

2. Translating

Are you fluent in other languages? Then this is a terrific way to volunteer! Many sources often need help interpreting documents, emails, videos, and anything else businesses may encounter.

3. Working as an Artist, Cartoonist, or Graphic Designer

Art lovers rejoice! A great way to get your designs out there, and to help companies in need along the way, is to offer up your art skills to help design logos, sketch cartoons, or whatever else your skills may include.

4. Sewing and Crafting

Have you recently nailed your cross-stich, or do you enjoy getting your hands a little messy from crafting? Then there are great online volunteering opportunities that allow you to help places, such as senior living communities.

5. Crisis Hotline Operating

A truly impactful way to give back this holiday season is to virtually volunteer for a crisis hotline. All you need to be able to do is be a good listener, and be able to provide emotional support for those who call.

6. Video Design and Editing

Is videography a hobby or passion of yours? Then your amazing skills can be put to great use when you volunteer your tech skills for companies that need a little help creating and editing video content!

7. Donating to Good Causes and More

We understand that finding time to help others can be hard when you have a busy schedule to tend to. Thankfully, there are many organizations that make it easy to donate online (securely). Here are a few websites that host information on plenty of different organizations, families, and individuals that need your help:
