Build Your Team | 3 Essential Tips for Employee Volunteering (1/3)

Getting employees to volunteer for your CSR events can be extremely challenging, and stressful. 40-50 hours in office a week should never be all about work. We are humans, remember? Sometimes we forget, thanks to technology which is enabling us to do more. Work never stops. We need to stop, to recharge. I’d like to […]

AnomalyCity: Bus Stop Lounge

Another sight to behold on the AnomalyCity series. A bus stop that has additional features. A tea and snacks corner, seating for several, and the most confusing of it all, a barrier. It’s almost as if it’s a mental and physical challenge of sorts. As you wait, keep calm, get comfortable, but when the bus […]

Why create a digital volunteers community for your nonprofit?

Causes are all about People. You may believe in your Cause, but if you don’t believe in the People behind your Cause, how fruitful will it be? Every movement starts with one or two, and builds into a larger one. Creating a digital community, not just for volunteers, but also for your donors and partners […]

AnomalyCity: Ambassador for the dead

Necessity is truly the mother of invention. ‘Jugaad’ in the true sense is made possible when one really needs to get something done, no matter what! There is always something interesting around us, if we care to look. I noticed this ambassador turned hearse-wagon parked on the road, and managed to take a picture in […]

Why go video?

Considering you do not have time, as a nonprofit leader or communicator, making quick video posts can help you greatly in the long run.  Ideas do not make appointments. They happen on the go. Your mobile device helps you capture videos quickly, either of yourself sharing a key thought concerning your industry or cause or […]

Photography: You are being watched

Person of Interest on Prime Video has an 8.4 rating. All about a super intelligent AI that’s taking over the world. It’s closer to the truth, that’s why it’s fiction. I don’t believe AI can ever take over the world without a human person controlling it. Nevertheless, we are all being watched. Maybe not as […]

How to map the volunteers journey?

Have you heard of the funnel system used in marketing? Attention, Interest, Desire and Action. This system presents the buyers journey from getting to know about a product to eventual purchase. Think about it for your Cause from a volunteers journey POV. Attention: the volunteer is aware of the opportunity. Interest: the volunteer expresses interest […]

Photography: Avian Bullying

Bullying, a habitual nature to harm or intimidate someone vulnerable. I was taking a photo of the mynah, adjusting the zoom, and then fixing the focus manually. It stood tall, scanning the horizon. Looking for its next flight stop I presume. Suddenly a black drongo appeared and perched itself beside the mynah. The mynah immediately […]

Cause-ing Creativity: Say No to Alcoholism

If you are a nonprofit, there is a simple way to UP your social media awareness efforts. It isn’t easy to break through the clutter, but getting creative has the potential to make the required difference for your presence online. Non-designer tools like Canva and Spark Post, among a host of others, provides the creative […]

Photography: Butterfly

Metamorphosis. Everyone needs change. Every new day is an opportunity to be a better version. Faith to faith. Strength to strength. The Butterfly is a fine representation of transformation. Man tries to create a universal standard, only to eventually fall into the cracks that can be repaired only by God.

How are nonprofits failing themselves on Social Media?

Not using Social Media wholeheartedly! What is the one thing no one has to waste? Time. Why would you open an account and not get serious on the platform? Many nonprofits still have a very negative view of social media platforms. Mostly because they are fearful. The fear of the unknown can turn into a […]
