Put a Smile on an Older Adult by making a Video Message!

2-40 hours / weekly
Flexible
Are you a compassionate person?

Are you looking for a fun and easy way to help others during COVID?

GenHelp has been putting smiles on older adults' faces since the start of this pandemic. We have sent over 1300+ cards + artwork to seniors in nursing homes and even organized musical concerts.

We have just started a new initiative, where we are sending 30-second video messages to seniors! These uplifting video messages can be about:

1) Wishing them happy holidays!

2) Maybe reciting a poem, sharing a funny joke or story

3) Playing a musical instrument or singing a song

4) Showing off your talent or fancy skills!

You can go solo or do it with your family/friends or workmates! As long as the video is uplifting and full of compassion that's all that matters. It doesn't have to be only 30 seconds, you can increase it to 1-2minutes if you want to.

This year the holidays won't be the same. Many people won't be able to meet with their loved ones. 

We are looking for compassionate volunteers to help us make these videos just in time for the holidays and bring moments of joy for older adults!

Is this lot of work?

Not at all... We send you the name of the older adult who you are creating the video for, you create a 30 second to 2-minute long video on your own and then send to us via email. Then we send it to the long term care facility. We can provide suggestions but no need to stress. What matters is you have fun and show your love for this older adult.
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
1) Volunteer safely during COVID
2) Flex your creative muscles
3) Develop skills in creating video content
