Life is a precious gift. Time is the most valuable thing you have;-more valuable than all the wealth and riches you can acquire. Time is the only true asset we have in this lifetime. How are you spending that asset?
Our dreams have one thing in common; “freedom to enjoy the most precious resource we have in life; our time on this earth”
No matter where a person chooses to donate his or her time, a volunteering experience can be fulfilling in a great many ways. Even if the volunteer can spare only a couple of hours a week, the organization or the party in need will appreciate the help.
There’s just something about giving back to the community that will just keep you going no matter what obstacles or challenges you face in your life. The very same principle applies even in the world of business and making money. All you have to do is ask yourself, HOW CAN I GIVE MORE VALUE? Even when you feel bored, ask yourself, what can I do that is fun and adds value to other people’s lives? That is one of the reasons we have introduced our app; Hobbytwin, to answer this and many other questions.
HobbyTwin instantly matches you with users with the same hobby skills and technical skills you love from 100mtrs where you go around the globe. Is it car restorations, playing a game of chess or a musical instrument, gardening, painting, swimming, golfing, hacking new languages, volunteering, baking, tapestry making, windsurfing, or even skydiving? We believe that the best teachers are the people we are living with right now and so are the best students. We believe that if we matched people by skills and allowed them to explore and exchange all the skills known to mankind, we could give the world free education, help people make real friends, and even contribute to each other’s growth and development as people accumulate all type of skills around them, making them elite problem solvers whenever faced by any type of challenges.
We are all experts in our niches, and everyone you meet can teach you something you do not know
At Hobbytwin, we believe in the slogan “To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die”. They may not even be your nuclear or extended family, but when you add value to their lives by teaching them something new they are interested in, they already become a part of your hobbytwin family. You also become a part of who they are and they will always remember you in their hearts and won’t forget you no matter how much they tried. For instance, if you ask someone where they first learned how to ride a bike, especially if they did not learn it in their childhood with the other kids, they always remember who taught them.
Everyone remembers the first time they did a fun activity like swimming, painting, skating, or going for a ride and who taught them how to, especially if the activity was free or impromptu with a friend. Even today to be realistic, friends who become family or a big part of our lives and still linger for long into our memories even after the hustles of this life send us to different corners of the world. These are the friends who taught us something fun that we did not know or encouraged us to pursue activities that shape who we become.
Times is the greatest gift we have in this world; hence, by default, it becomes the greatest form of charity you can ever accord anyone in this lifetime. Giving monetary resources is great because there are a lot of people who need all the help they can get, but time is the greatest you can ever accord anyone coz it is all that we have. Other than time, everything else is man-made; hence, it is the only thing that your conscience will demand that you account for on your deathbed.
Religion aside, after all is said and done, did you make a difference? And if the answer is ‘no’, did you at least try to the best of your capabilities to improve the lives of the people around you? At Hobbytwin we believe that when you spend a little chunk of your time teaching someone something they would like to learn, you are already giving to charity coz you are giving a piece of your greatest possession you have in the world; your time.
There is nothing more fulfilling than giving to a stranger or teaching them something they are passionate about and getting to watch them execute that thing/activity a few moments later with sheer perfection. Imagine teaching a street kid something you are already passionate about so you will also be having fun e.g. painting or drawing, and they end up becoming the best painters of their lifetime, making a living from that skill.
You will have given the best charity of your lifetime on this earth because you will not have given to this one painter, you will have also given charity to his future wife and kids if he uses that skill to put food on the table and also inspired a whole new generation of painters. That is why we are still inspired by the works of legends such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo Galilei.

Note: “You cannot teach everyone, but everyone can teach someone something” & “We are all experts in our niches, and everyone can teach you something you do not know”
Whether formal or informal, Hobbytwin believes in using one’s free time or mastering one’s interests towards making a difference in our communities no matter where one travels in the world. Think of it as Hobby-volunteerism.
Hobby-volunteerism can be defined as using volunteering as an outlet for your talents, which for many people is also an artistic expression. What better way to enjoy giving back than to turn your artistic gifts into a volunteer role?! No matter what artistic medium you use—whether it’s dance, writing code, bicycling, woodcarving, gardening, mind-teasing board games, music, fine arts, or knitting— you can turn your hobby into an opportunity to give back to your neighborhood and those around you no matter where you are located in this world, and this is now possible through the Hobbytwin app!
Hobby-volunteerism can also be a rewarding way to enhance your portfolio as you perfect your own crafts/interests. This article is dedicated to all you creators looking to use your passion for art to make the world a better place. Here are a few ideas and if you are the only person you know that’s on the Hobbytwin app right now, encourage your neighbors to join as well.
Let us try making the world a better place together by sharing our skills with those around us during our free time. The advantages are limitless, with the greatest being free education, making real friends, giving to charity, and meeting and associating with your neighbors over a common fun activity among many others.
Our message is very simple; take on an apprentice who would like to learn an activity that you are already good at. In exchange you get companionship, pass on your skill, perfect your skill as you instruct, and your apprentice might just learn something new from you. You just might start a lucrative neighborhood tradition.
There are many reasons why people volunteer and Hobbytwin comes into the picture to make hobby-volunteerism even easier. Some people volunteer to escape their lives or to relax from a highly demanding job, to participate in a fun activity, or to just feel useful around their community.
Others do it as a means of maintaining links with their native neighborhoods or a place they visited when growing up or just to make connections with other people who like taking part in a worthwhile course. Some people may perceive hobby-volunteerism as a peculiar thing, but sharing interests and hobbies brings a great sense of community, a communal feeling, and sheer fulfillment.
