Community service especially online is in a broad range and can be done in various forms. For example helping people in their challenging and difficult time as a volunteer listener through a beneficial and genuine website is also one of the way of community service . Besides that, spreading awareness through social media on behalf of causes that matters such as health care cost, the quality of education or low income group concerns in the community, helps to create an awareness in the social media. Getting involved in a website that helps people with anxiety and depression by helping the in any possible way as a volunteer also helps to create a positive impact in the community service.

You may do so by helping others such as going to www.7Cupsoftea.com or any other related sites like this, this is a great way to help people emotionally, and this is a form of community service online.

If you're talking about court-ordered community service, I'm not sure that online is an option. If it's court-ordered, usually the court will have a list of approved placements and paperwork you'll need. Volunteering online is much easier. There are websites like volunteermatch.com that can help you locate volunteer opportunities both online and in your local area. One of the best ways is to make a list of the skills you have and then try to locate volunteer opportunities based on those skills you possess. For example, website creation and management, fund raising, or recruiting.

You can help by going on Twitter and randomly complimenting people; it's making their day. Or you can do a bit more and start an account directly for that, and helping people or just being there for them. Little things make a huge difference.

Even simple listening, and being there will count as community service. You just have to be patient and then want to sincerely help others in need, not to judge, and be unhelpful to others. :D

Online classes could be an option. I've also heard of this website called Chloe & Isabel. It's a website where you can become a merchandiser and sell jewelry from their collections.

Become a part of one of the many webgroups that offer community service. Such as becoming a listener on 7cups and being part of the team!

Simply by sharing a message on Facebook or a tweet on twitter about a charity can raise awareness. Donate money to charities or support a welfare :)

I feel like community service online is even better than a physical community because of the fact that the online community is so huge with many options! If you would like to do community service, I would say first find a way to give to a community. 7Cups is amazing because you can give yourself to guests/members and help them figure themselves and their situations out. If you want another type of community service, I would look for a website with a big community of people that you relate to/ care about, and start a service project of some sort. You might want to ask them and talk to the community and start off by asking what they would like help with. Hope that helps! "\ml/"

I don't know what your version of community service is. But if you want to help others you can always take a test to be a listener on 7 cups of tea. You can also go to a website called freerice.com for every question that is answered correctly they donate 10 grains of rice. It adds up pretty quickly.

It's great that you want to contribute to community services online! Perhaps the best place to start is do some research on services or programs out there available, that fits your specific skill sets. 7 cups is definitely a great place to start; you make immediate impact by being a listener, and you're basically contributing to a global community that collaboratively want to make this world a better place.

Well, it is a little known fact that one can do community service online. In small but important ways, anyone can help the causes they care about with just a computer and the right intention. Here are some ideas for getting involved today. Advocate via Social Media Whether it is health care costs, the quality of education or low-income groups of concern in the community, advocate on behalf of causes that matter. A simple tweet or Facebook post raises awareness and makes a difference. If everyone worked to spread the word about the United Way's goals via social media, imagine the impact it would make. Contact Congress about Important Issues The United States Congress needs to hear more about the issues affecting communities around the country, such as the health risks faced by American youth. Emailing a member of Congress is one way to champion this important cause. Give to a worthy cause No one is too busy to help make the community, the country and the world a better place. Anyone can find a few minutes to do some community service online. Of course, there is always more to do, but something is better than nothing. So think about getting involved today.

I am glad that you wish to do community service online. Fortunately, there are a lot of ways the Internet has made this simple. Micro-volunteering is a concept where you can spend 30, 10 or even just 2 minutes to help someone, by either voicing your opinion or running an errand for a non-profit or business. If you are interested, some sites I personally use are SkillsForChange.com and HelpFromHome.org, both sites where various non-profits and organisations pitch in their need for volunteers to run mini errands. Even 7 Cups here is probably community service! Nothing more nobler that lending a compassionate shoulder for the depressed.

Believe it or not, you are servicing the community when you're in search of answers. Personally, no matter how low I'm feeling at any moment and an opportunity comes for me to help someone, it always makes me feel better. I forget about my issues, for the moment, and focus on helping and that, makes me better in many ways. Balance is the key to achieving peace. Life is about inputs and outputs, zeros and ones, ups and downs, etc...without one, there is no other. One day you might feel like an input or an output, a zero or a one or you might feel up or down but know, you are always servicing the community when you take action in helping yourself or others.

The definition of community service is "voluntary work intended to help people." I see 7 cups of tea as a great way to do that. Voluntarily help people by hoping to make their lives better, hoping to have their lips defy gravity and smile. This is how I can do community service online. What do you think?
