Giving back and building community

Doing good is something most people think about.  We want to help each other, it’s a key part of the human experience.  But while we       see TV commercials about hunger and water conservation halfway across the world, we often struggle to connect to and help the people right around us.

In many cases it’s useful and important for non-profits and other charitable organizations to be a clearing house for good works.  But what if the 78 year old woman a couple of blocks over just needs help clearing trees after a storm?  Wouldn’t neighbors be the best people to help and get the most out of connecting to and developing a friendship with her and with each other?  /doing-good is a way to change that and to build community with those people right around us.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
