Want to volunteer? Don’t know how or where?
As we grow and service more and more of the community we have found ourselves with more who want to help others or find a way to make a difference. As such, we are going to be launching a page for people to sign up to volunteer through by the end of the year. We will have a list of items that we currently provide and opportunities for you to add ideas of what we could add to the team with your help.
For example, you can volunteer your time writing articles, researching new treatments. If you are comfortable with writing you can help with sharing the anonymous “RSD Angel” posts for the community to answer. Or if you enjoy creating artworks, you can volunteer your time doing that. And if there is something you think you bring to the table that we are lacking, you can suggest it to us, and help us with that instead.
So if you are interested in helping RCDOM, please start thinking about what you would like to do and how much you’d like to be involved (how many hours a week you’d like to donate). Even one hour a week by 40 people can make a world of difference for other patients who fight this same battle.
There will be rules and guidelines we all must follow, but with any group that stands the test of time you will find these. So with that in mind, know you are always welcome to bring discussions and ideas to the table, but ultimately, we work as a team for one goal: To help the fellow global pain community have a chance for answers, inspiration, and hope.
You can help us grow and make us better, all you have to do is put in a little bit of your time. We don’t ask for a lot, just a bit of dedication. (Please know other obligations such as other support groups run by you or with your assistance should never go without you. This is meant to be a community effort with many roots to help hold up the tree.)
