THE ‘GOOD TO BE GOOD’ MOVEMENT
Living in the Western world, we have become so busy in life with acquiring things for the benefit of ourselves and seeking things we need, from good food to a decent jacket. Ergo, it is easy to forget about the more important things in life such as selfless giving, kindness, creative altruism and of course, love. These are things that ultimately shape the context of our human being experience and what bring us closer together. Universally, these are investments that never fail and we make a life by what we give not by what we get.
When we do good, we feel good. Good in, good out.
How do we exercise our ‘good‘ muscles and work jointly for a greater impact in driving change in the world we inhabit? One act of kindness at a time. When we cultivate sincere generosity and kindness without expectation of reward or reciprocity, we inadvertently discover the great paradox that underlies fuller human flourishing – in the giving of self lies the surprising discovery of a happier and healthier life. So by doing ‘unto others’ we not only help those in need, we help ourselves. Above and beyond, we are all connected and no life is separate from another. No matter how big or small the act is, everything we do as an individual affects the whole.
We all want the same things – peace, justice, love. A life of significance and hope. All of us would like to believe that if we were in an unfortunate situation, someone would help us. And if we have the opportunity to be there for someone, we should have the initiative and courage to take it. With our mutual efforts and message, we fulfill our responsibility of cherishing every human life. Charity begins at home but it doesn’t stop there. We hope you continue to do small things with great love and continue using this life for doing good for the world! We can create a better humanity with one act of kindness at a time. A better world begins and thrives with each and every one of us.
Good To Be Good Foundation was established in September 2016. We are a grassroots, non-profit, community-wide organization with a comprehensive initiative of advocating for humanity, gender equality, and the power of the giving spirit.
We aim to strengthen the movement of lasting change through humanitarian aid, community-oriented collaboration, awareness campaigns, and the power of transformational services.
Our efforts have a commitment to ignite social change and raise donations which support the long term vitality of our partnered shelters, programs, and charities.* As a volunteer-powered initiative, we are able to serve the immediate and long-term needs of communities – centring those most impacted by social disparities and inequalities.
Our annual community-focused events raise critical funds to support services, programs, and investment where the need is greatest. Our primary focus addresses issues impacting women and girls, total equity, and social justice.
