– The Empowerment Zone

The team from The Empowerment Zone ( did such a great job telling our story.  The Podcast is about 14 minutes long, but worth a listen if you want to fully understand the Do Good Bus experience. (Click on the image below to listen)


The Do Good bus is a Los Angeles-based 501(3)(c) non-profit that takes groups to different places to volunteer. The twist is that the group of volunteers doesn’t know where they will be taken for their service trip!

The idea for the Do Good Bus was born from a party bus that founder Rebecca Reeder’s friends rented for her birthday. She saw that friends from different parts of her life connect through being crammed on the bus together. The idea that strangers could connect for the common purpose of volunteering to do good drove Rebecca to pursue the idea of bringing people together to volunteer — and eventually buy a bus.
