Doing Good is an innovative, 501c3 non-profit with the goal to increase the number of volunteers & the number of hours per volunteer. The mission is to educate & engage communities by promoting & celebrating “Doing Good” through volunteerism, & the vision is to be the conduit to educate & inspire cultural shifts toward community volunteerism. The values of Doing Good are Inspiration, Authenticity, Integrity, Connectivity, Inclusivity, Quality, Support, & a Personal approach.

Doing Good provides Marketing & Public Relations tools, opportunities, & resources to agencies which celebrate volunteers. The more Doing Good can provide these agencies, the more of their existing time & money they can spend on their own mission. An example of a Doing Good tool provided the agencies is the YouTube Video; two examples of Doing Good opportunities are Nashville's Volunteer of the Month (media visibility) & Hilarity for Charity (a live event); an example of a Doing Good resource is the area's largest list of agencies.

Volunteers provide hope and inspiration. They change the world. Yet, they are too often not recognized for their time, talent or effort.

Today more than ever, people are in need and services need to be provided. The most effective way to achieve this is through volunteerism.

By featuring local volunteers already making a difference in the community, Doing Good inspires and educates people to volunteer – reaching them where they are with the real stories of the real people who make real differences in the community!.

Now is the time to recognize these volunteers. By changing the community, they change the world.
