Volunteering app ManyHands to enable 970M volunteers to tackle coronavirus crisis, launches in under 3 weeks

Volunteering app ManyHands to enable 970M volunteers to tackle coronavirus crisis, launches in under 3 weeks
Founder Ash: “90% of adults say they want to volunteer, 25% actually do. The core reasons are fear for long term commitment, inflexibility of volunteering roles, and difficulty to find the best fit cause. I myself proudly volunteer as a befriender for the elderly. Under the current coronavirus crisis, I wanted to help beyond just volunteering and so my cofounder built an app to help Age UK volunteers find ad hoc tasks they can complete with isolated members of the community (elderly, physically disabled etc). As of Monday, we will have gone from idea to live paid pilot in just under 3 weeks and are now looking for funding to scale this quickly and
enable 970M volunteers globally totackle the global pandemic.”
