Do you like meeting people, high-fiving and volunteering? You can do all three on the Do Good Bus.

If the name doesn’t tip you off, the bus takes riders to a volunteering activity, but the activity and destination remain a mystery until you arrive.

Scared off by the secrecy? Don’t be.

“We make it fun and social on the way,” says co-founder Rebecca Pontius, “so it’s kind of like a party bus, but we do good.”

The group’s mantra is summed up mathematically as: strangers + bus + do good = fun. The rush of not knowing what’s in store (C’mon, who doesn’t enjoy a little mystery?) is precisely what attracted volunteer Brittany Rubinger to try it out.
