Not really unique I think but I volunteer at a local Urban Native Youth after school program as a homework tutor and all around free pair of hands ( we're on break for the summer). I also help out at Seattles LGBT chamber of commerce (set up their annual fundraiser for undergrad scholarships, manning their Pride booth, etc). I also used to be an English convo partner for international students at Uni of Washington.

I don't know how unique this is. I'm in my third year of doing taxes for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Now that I live in a larger area, I can do it almost year round, instead of just January to April.

I volunteer at a cat shelter! I originally signed up because I needed 40 hours of volunteer time per academic year to keep my scholarship, but I've since exceeded that time and kept volunteering because I enjoyed it so much!!

• I'm a BLS Instructor, so I teach people how to save lives in everyday scenarios!
• I'm a platelet donor, so every two weeks I sit in a chair for three hours while attached to a blood product separation machine.
• I like to clean the beach!  The ocean is not a place for trash, so I try to do my part to minimize litter.
• I also mentor a couple aspiring funeral directors.

I used to volunteer for the Cats Protection. I'd collect money dressed as a cat and bake stuff for their summer fete. I had to give it up due to ill health but my husband stepped in and set up a monthly donation in my name.

I've just signed up for the Find a Grave site, thanks for the suggestion! I live very close to a graveyard and used to work in the funeral/memorial field, so it seemed like the sensible thing to do.
