This website was originally built for impact days during which schools, universities, neighborhoods and companies volunteer for the community. But at Give a Day, we feel we live in extraordinary times with regard to the corona COVID-19 crisis and it is important today that we support current social initiatives with the right tools to organize help. So we offer it for free to anyone who needs a platform to match questions for help and volunteers. We help you to help.That is our core mission and the sole reason we started our platform a few years ago.

The platform helps organize COVID-19 neighbor help locally 

Every municipality and organization is currently looking for solutions to properly match requests for help with volunteers. Many people are isolated and need help.

In the context of the Corona crisis, we provide a platform free of charge where municipalities and large organizations can organize, manage and increase social engagement. The platform allows for faster matching between requests for help and volunteers while respecting the privacy of the people involved. 

City of Leuven started on March 15, 2020 as the first city. Below you will find a list of all municipalities with their own local help platform on our website.
