Every day, thousands of people do Gigs across the country. They range from taking photos of store displays to interviewing people about fruit juice, handing out fliers, and beta testing mobile apps.
About a year ago, we posted a Gig that didn’t pay, but was for what some people will remember as Street Cred. It was to pick up trash in your neighborhood parks.
We referred to it as Gigwalk for Good and people had a blast helping improve their neighborhoods and building their Gigwalk reputation in the process!
While we don’t have street cred anymore, the Gigs they did and the positive reviews they got help them get selected for Gigs. That’s why we’re bringing back Gigwalk for Good. This time, with even more kinds of Gigs. You’ll see Gigwalk for Good pop up every once in a while with Gigs like:
- Handing out water bottles to people who need it during heat waves
- Compliment 5 people and ask them to pass the compliment forward
- Volunteer at a local food bank or soup kitchen
Just remember: The purpose of Gigs posted for Gigwalk for Good is to give back. Because of this, they won’t pay unless it’s to reimburse you for something you may need to buy. However, these Gigs do count towards the total number of Gigs completed. Good reviews still help you build your reputation, and bad reviews will hurt it.
