Lucas Meijs, professor Strategic Philanthropy and Volunteering at the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam, has been mentioned in an article. The article discusses the clothing brand Patagonia, which is famous for its activism and sustaibability policy. The platform Action Works was established and brings together people that are organising charity events and people that are willing to donate and volunteer. Lucas Meijs thinks that the platform could work, but high quality volunteering will not always contribute something. He states that "One also needs people that clean the mess. Moreover, not every skill is useful for the organisation. The knowledge of a computerbased logistics employee is not very useful for Doctors Without Borders without electricity."
