As a freelancer, I am able to divide my time between projects that I choose, and I would love to spend some of that time contributing to the causes I care about. But where do I start?
That's where Wethos comes in. Wethos is a network that connects freelancers to non-profit gigs and the causes they care most about.
Founded in 2016 by Rachel Renock, Claire Humphreys and Kristen Ablamsky, Wethos was built on the understanding that many nonprofit employees are overworked while the younger generation of freelancers are looking for ways to use their skills to make a positive impact.
"Wethos nonprofits range from small budget grassroots community causes to some of the largest and well-known organizations in the country," the Wethos website reads. "We turn applicants around in 24-48 hours with the promise that each freelancer is hand-picked based on talent and reliability for your cause."
If you're a freelancer, signing up is pretty straightforward. Click on the "Sign Up" button on the top righthand corner of the screen to get started. Unfortunately (for me), Wethos is currently only operating in the US.
