I don’t know many people that would work an hr for 15% off of a pie so the people complaining about this scheme are idiots. Just hope it registers with more unemployed to get more charity work done. It will also help give people a purpose to get up in the morning. Nothing wrong in showing people they’re appreciated and needed.

For those who volunteer who often get taken for granted, why not reward them a little? An hours work is only 1 ‘hullcoin’ so hardly going to break the bank! It’ll also encourage people to do more

National Champions Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide shirt I wanted to get something like this started in my community to encourage more people to volunteer. Nice to see someone actually made it work! Mine was easier you earned a card from the nonprofit after a certain number of hours or days of volunteering. These cards could be used at shops in the valley and would offer discounts of up to 50% (with certain restrictions). Simple but really the same idea. I think this is wonderful! As an employee of a non-profit, we are always looking for ways to say thank you to our volunteers- but we don’t have the funds to do much. For local businesses to get involved, that makes it even better. I donate blood and I sometimes get a free shirt or tickets to something. It’s just an incentive to do more good than you’re already doing.

Love this idea. Especially when charities have to list the number of volunteer hours when applying for subsidies. They are taken into account by agencies has “money value”. For the actual people, nothing is accounted for their time spent helping and giving a hand in the community. 10% off days for seniors why not volunteers? I don’t know about the UK but at least in Germany, it is not uncommon to get a small amount of money for the volunteer work you do. Not a lot, usually, it’s more like some extra pocket money that helps you compensate possible expenditures you have from doing the volunteer work and makes you feel like your work is appreciated. And I don’t think it makes people suddenly less motivated or less willing to do volunteer work. Because in the end, you don’t do it for the money. If you are after the money, even the simplest, underpaid job would still get you more money.
