You may sign up as a listener here on 7 Cups of Tea and actively help people get through their situations by listening to them.

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. Anyone can find the time to send an email from work, home or during that long bus ride home after school. Give to a worthy cause Passionate about health, income and education issues facing the community? Support United Way today. Even small donations make a difference in the lives of others. 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.

There are many different ways to volunteer using the internet as your platform. The more common ones include tutoring, counselling/advising, and donating. If you use social media and have a decent sized following, you can use that platform as a means to broadcast and bring attention to issues being faced and organizations which are working to fix them. If none of the above is really your thing, which is completely fine, I would suggest contacting organizations and seeing if they need any help or looking up the UN's online volunteering service page; they have several options listed there as well.

I'm not quite sure if you want it for some sort of a school or a college or not, but if you do not then I believe this website itself represents somehow a community service. You may also help Orphan Houses' websites somehow if you're good at coding or by adding/editing contents for it...etc

You can help other people out of bullying or moderate online chats such as stuff like 7 Cups, but otherwise they'll be in a giant group.

Depends on what type of community service you are looking to do. Github is perfect if you want to contribute to open source projects and be part of the team.

You can start by becoming a listener on this website. That way you could help the people who come here for help.

Lots of local shelters are always in need of volunteers and help. You can use social media to share their needs or their events they may have coming up.

7 Cups is a great place to get started, if that's what you're interested in! Of course, there are other online volunteer organizations you can look into, as well as some others that function via telephone. Run a quick Google search, and see what you find! (:

You can sign up on 7 cups to be a listener for starters. There are also many blogs you can post on to help people who need answers to their issues they are dealing with.

I recommend that you just go and actually do something for your community. There's no easy way out. Voleenteer at a homeless or animal shelter.

Most of us are do-gooders at heart. We want to run charities get involved in a project that helps the community deal with a range of issues. Until now the people who wanted to get involved in feel-good activities did not not either have the time or money to chase their philanthropic dream. Now we can do online community service without worrying about expenses. All one has to do is browse the internet for finding a cause in which one would like to play an active role.

Doing community service online is great, but there's always a good sense of belonging when you really get out there and help other people. 7 Cups is always a GREAT place to start. By working with others and sharing your experiences, 7 Cups can launch you into a lifetime of service and kindness. Go 7 Cups! Good luck!

Just be a listener and let the person speak their hearts out with no fear of judgement and let them speak out what they never could !
