SocialEffort was founded in 2013 and based in New York City. Our work enables volunteering within charities, non-profits, and philanthropic organizations - and helps seamlessly integrate these activities into people’s lifestyles. Our goal is to connect caring individuals with opportunities they care about. We believe that one good deed should be rewarded with another. Whether it’s raising support for a cause, giving support, or just doing good deeds, SocialEffort enables people to promote their causes, gain support, and get things done - in real time.

- Search for specific opportunities or filter through New, Current, and Popular
- Favorite an opportunity

Once you've selected a specific opportunity, navigate and touch to:
- View location, map, summaries, and your opp's "Geo-Fence" radius
- Check out more details
- Take a photo of the opp - or take a selfie (Smile!).
- **Many opportunities require you to register ahead of time. Don't forget to call or email them first!

When you're volunteering, let everyone know! Share (everyone's doing it)!
- Share your work - you can keep your friends posted across a range of social networks. Do good - and let it show.
- View directions to your opportunity and even invite friends (contact your administrator before bringing anybody).
- Auto-check in works so you don't forget to log your time - focus on doing good!


Finally, check your impact:
- The SocialEffort app collects the time you've spent volunteering, and displays it to you visually. Now, you can better see where your efforts are being focused and plan accordingly.
