Are you a professional eager to help?

On March 18th 2016, a group of volunteers is organising an evening of overtime work for professionals of various trades (marketing, communications, finance, HR, etc.). Join them for a rewarding night: meet new people, join in delivering valuable projects for 10 local NGOs and charities, and see just how much you can create in only 8 hours!

Donate 8 hours of your time to do what you do best and contribute your most valuable asset: your professional experience. To join now, click here.

We believe one can never be too generous. But this time, instead of asking you to donate money, we’re asking you to contribute, for one night only, bringing your professional expertise and enthusiasm to life. Together with a team of other volunteers, you will deliver a a practical solution for one of the local NGOs that need help with carrying their organisation forward and meeting their goals to help our local community. Yes, all in 8 hours!

This is your chance to contribute in a meaningful way to the development of our community. Gather a team of 4-5 professionals and sign up for the event before 23:59 on March 12th, by filling out this form. You can also sign up on your own!

Taking part in 8 Hours Overtime for a Good Cause in Edinburgh you will get to meet and network with talented professionals in an informal and friendly environment. It will also be a wonderful occasion for you to learn more about the community you live in – the challenges and opportunities set forth by charities and non-profit organisations in and around Edinburgh.

So, are you in?
