2. Flexible time, can fit in during lunch hour, evenings, whenever. matches my long term career goals to work fully online.
4. This takes less time and I do not physically have to go to downtown Milwaukee to sign up to volunteer. Also, I am able to look for volunteer assignments in the area I feel comfortable travelling and volunteering in.
5. I guess the fact that i can work on my own time, any time i wish. But i don't complain about having to work with people face to face

13. I don't make any qualitative distinction between f2f and remote volunteering experiences. The only difference that I recognize would be the time commitment - remote allows my discretion in time allotment, versus the time allocation requirement of f2f.
15. It would have been less time consuming than calling organizations or reading the paper.
16. Easier to see the range of opportunities, more exposure
17. Immediate notice of openings!
19. I found the opportunity on the net, but my volunteer work is face-to-face
20. Ease of signup and contact.
21. N/A Do not mind either method.
22. More flexibility in my time schedule.
26. I could work at home

28. The idea would not have entered my mind had I not taken a look at your site. I don't know what I did it.
30. Can't compare since I never had the opportunity
32. It was something I could do at work when I didn't have anything to do. I've never encountered any other form of volunteering that you can do this way. (I cleared it with my office ahead of time to be sure they had no objection; presumably there could by types of on-line volunteering to which an employer could object such as Corporate Watch work.)
33. Using the Internet has a certain efficiency about it but it comes at a cost, as I mentioned above.
