As a Fiverr freelancer, It is a joy to be your own boss all year and manage your own clients and finances, but around the holidays you may envy your fellow friends and family in office settings.
While they attend holiday parties & host charity toy drives you are alone with your home set-up.
This year you can get into the holiday spirit all on your own and offer your freelance services to do good.
Why You Should Give Back
It is important for you as a freelancer to connect with your community and reach out to help others. Here are just a few reasons, other than for pure intrinsic goodness, why you should donate your time:
Firstly, it’s important to give back because freelance work can isolate you from human connection and make you forget why your work is meaningful.
Your flexible schedule allows you time to do more—possibly one of the reasons you chose this workflow. Second, it is a great way to network and positively impact the validity of your business.
As a freelancer you understand, first-hand, the lonely journey to fend for yourself and create your business. You may have experienced help from others along the way and this is a great reason to pay it forward.
Who You Can Collaborate With
You can find various non-profit organizations around your community to help out, but there is one company that can find them for you—Do For Good.
Do For Good is a non-profit charity whose mission is to connect talented freelancers to non-profits in order to create a global impact. Whether you are a graphic designer, writer, photographer, VO artist, or social media guru there is a non-profit in search of your services.

‘Tis The Season For Gifts That Matter
As a Fiverr freelancer you may feel powerless to help those across the world, but Do For Good empowers you to be proactive.
Dismiss the big red bows, hemp tweed, and meaningless consumerist gifts for those who have it all. This season you can make a difference to a group of people who could benefit from fresh drinkable water wells by proofreading their written proposals. The holidays can be dreadful for those who have to work and spend time alone or be away from their families, but you can celebrate as a freelancer by offering your services & hard work.
Don’t let the holiday blues get you down, instead lift yourself up and offer your services to carefully vetted non-profit organizations to make a lasting world change.
