How to make a world of difference

The Vodafone Foundation have been trying to do volunteering a bit differently recently. They've been running a scheme called World of Difference where you can apply to volunteer with a UK charity for two months and Vodafone will pay you to do it. It's an interesting way of incentivising volunteering and could create a shift in how people view giving their time.

The idea is to make volunteering attractive to people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to help a UK charity full time. I think it's an innovative way to get people engaged with charities at home. Do you think that this is really volunteering?

You have to apply and be selected, so if you're interested, the deadline is 3 November.
