Here's another way to use the concept behind Uber for something completely different... and useful.
Yesterday I talked about the idea of using the same technology as Uber for connecting a labor force of people willing to work with people who need work done. It was called Uber For Jobs. Today, I'm suggesting nearly the same thing, connecting people who need work with people with the time, skills and resources to do the job... as an unpaid volunteer.
This is a perfect adaptation of the core principles behind Uber. Anyone with spare time could use the App to let people know they are available for volunteer work, and anyone looking for volunteers could use the App to find people who are available right now to help out.
