We may be moving into Level 2, but as workplaces adapt to new social distancing measures and flexible work arrangements, many of us are continuing to work from the comfort of our homes.
There are so many benefits to working from home. The Good team have been baking bread on our lunch breaks, making the most of our coffee machines, and dressing in in loungewear as the weather turns for the worse. Not only that, we’ve saved plenty of moolah by avoiding our usual morning commutes, which include taking the bus, jumping on e-scooters, and driving.
This is where #DonateMyCommute comes in, a new campaign where people working from home can support their favourite charity by donating the usual cost of their work commute. By enabling donors to give their usual bus fare, train ticket, or petrol money, charities are able to get the support they need, when they need it the most.
A spokesperson from #DonateMyCommute says “with restrictions placed on regular outdoor activities, public gatherings, and even visiting friends, many of the community fundraising events were cancelled. But we know that our community just wants to support the causes they love, so we saw #DonateMyCommute as a perfect alternative that would allow people to help from home.”
#DonateMyCommute is run by Everydayhero, an Australasian peer-to-peer fundraising platform. You can visit #DonateMyCommute here, select your favourite New Zealand charity, and go!
