Good People Doing Good is a nonprofit organization with the simple goal of helping our neighbors with unexpected acts of kindness. People write to us about someone they know currently going through a struggle, whether it be a financial or an emotional struggle. We try to bring a smile to their face by unexpectedly sending them a gift, which could be grocery gift cards, subscription to a food of the month club, or even putting heating oil in a neighbor's tank.
We try not to make it about ourselves. We swoop in, do good, swoop out, and leave our recipients stunned and extremely happy. Most of the people that receive gifts from Good People Doing Good had never even heard of us before.
During our organization’s infancy in 2018, we raised and donated over $6,000 in goods and services. We are now on track to triple, if not more, in 2019! Starting as a very small grassroots nonprofit organization, as of March, 2019, we are bringing in over $1,000 a month from our monthly patrons all over the world.
Some of the unexpected good deeds that we have done have been:
• giving away hundreds of toys to children in a low-income neighborhood
• buying a student a bus pass for the winter months
• buying a brand new pair of glasses for a college acceptant still wearing his first glasses
• covering travel expenses for a mother to fly to her eldest son’s graduation
• delivering over 600 great books to a low-income school
• assisting families dealing with natural disasters/job loss/diagnosis/etc.
• simply buying a fireman's coffee
• and so much more!
We just want to help and make people feel loved and restore some faith in humanity.
