We connect good people with community and purpose. During each event, we have three goals:
AWARENESS - There are hundreds of causes that help our city, our neighbors, and our friends; our mission is to bring visibility and accessibility to these causes.
COMMUNITY - We aim to prove the power of working together with a shared purpose of making a difference.
SOCIAL IMPACT - We hope the Do Good Bus experience will inspire passengers to keep doing good – at work, at home, and in their community.
We’ve got you.
You’re amazing, but you’re not an event planner. We do all the planning to make it turn-key for you.
We have a great network of social good volunteer opportunities to experience the powerful impact of giving back.
Not your typical corporate team-building event.
There is natural team-building in working together on the projects at the causes we visit. Working side-by-side, your team will forge lasting, authentic connections. Getting on the Do Good Bus is a great way for your team to work together, do good together, and learn about their community.
A little mystery... a little fun.
We believe surprises are fun, but the mystery is also the first step in creating bonds and good communication... and if you want to have a say in things — we are happy to share the destination with you or work together to pick a cause that best suits your organization.
