We make good things happen!
If you're an individual, list things you can do to add good to the world. Survey your talents and interests, your dreams, your passions, etc.
Get started right away—with small things like "Say a kind word to everyone I encounter" or "Be more patient with those who annoy me"...
and take that first step toward bigger things, like volunteering, sharing an expertise, or starting something new.
If you're a group (friends, a scout troop, a youth group, a retirement village, etc.) you can follow our format or create your own.
Gather together those with a heart to help. Pool your talents and interests to create projects that enrich each other and benefit others.
Search our newsletters for examples, that can be adapted to your unique needs and location.
Let us know how you're doing so we can enlarge our storehouse of good ideas!
