After years of continually being asked by their friends the question, “How Can I get involved?” This group of lovely people decided what better way to answer the question then by showing their friends and thus was birthed the Do Good Bus which they explain best in their own words:
“The Do Good Bus is an opportunity to get involved and help your community. Just get on the bus and we do the rest. Each trip is different and the locations are a secret. You never know where you’ll end up and what you might end up doing. You will be wined and dined while on the bus and learn about causes in your neighborhood. If you have always wanted to get involved, volunteer or help others but didn’t know how, hop on the Do Good Bus! ”
The bus runs in LA and surrounding areas so unless you live there it might be hard to catch a ride but you can still help them out HERE
