Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: write a blog post to increase awareness around sustainability issues, bring WiserEarth to a country that will greatly benefit from our mission, promote and enter sustainability events around the world, review our WiserLocal program, carry our message across cultural boundaries by translating a page or two into a new language, enhance our Giving program and bring more financial sustainability to our organization.

Our community’s voice has been heard in Brazil, Mexico, France, India, Liberia, the United Kingdom and beyond. Followers of our social media channels have also expanded: our Facebook fan base has exploded 153%, Twitter followers by 25%, and blog readership has grown by 36% since December 2009. We’ve also implemented a new streamlined homepage!
We’re seeing a higher rate of member signups since the languages launch, and best of all, greater engagement within our community in member groups!
Here is what one of the Wiser community member has to say: Tola Winjobi, a member from Nigeria: "Wiser has given those of us from the global South the rare opportunity of being a part of the big but yet small global village in terms of e-connectivity and especially creating a forum (free web forum) for us to share ideas with our colleagues up North."
