Is it time for the fun?
I drive the Do Good Bus. The Do Good Bus helps people feel more connected than alone.
Our fun volunteering opportunities connect people, business and community. The connections we make improves peoples mental health and well-being through purpose.
By bringing awareness and support to society’s needs, we create a lifestyle of giving and caring.
The Do Good Bus experience gives individuals an opportunity to “do good” together and learn more about their communities. We bring awareness to local causes in need with rides for people who have like minded values and want to work to make a difference.
We create a community of people including new friends, students and employees by promoting the power of working together through team buildings. “Do Gooders” are encouraged to continue support for the causes we visit.
Seeing people embrace the joy and sense of belonging when they connect with each other.
Swimming in Bali, we were caught in a riptide, there were three of us. With few options and the situation worsening, myself and friend grabbed the weaker swimmer, knowing this may be a fatal for all of us, we swam out of trouble. Still today, I feel there was force beyond us that gave us the strength and endurance we needed.
I rock my Do Good Bus suspenders all the time.
