Welcome to Humanists Doing Good!
We are a nonprofit and nonreligious community of compassionate and rational people doing good for the sake of good. We are people learning, socializing and volunteering together. We are always looking for more people to join our cause and invite you to learn more about our organization and our beliefs. You just may be surprised to learn that great minds such as Albert Einstein have shared our vision.
Humanists Doing Good focuses on improving our lives by improving the lives of others.

We are seeking volunteers to help staff our first booth of the year at Earth Day/Arbor Fest in Lincoln Park. We'll have succulent plants mounted in stone and/or other objects available for donations and we could also use help transporting these to our booth. Volunteers will also interact with the public to help spread awareness of our organization and humanism. Prior experience is not required and we are happy to partner inexperienced volunteers with experienced volunteers to staff the booth. Our volunteers are usually able to go home with some free baby trees that are made available as part of Arbor Fest too.
Please wear your yellow HDG volunteer shirt if you have one available.
We plan to have multiple shifts for volunteers to choose from. The actual event begins at noon and ends at 5:00 pm, but we will need to have volunteers to help set up and take down our booth.
When: Saturday, April 22nd with shifts starting at 9 am and lasting until approximately 5:30 pm
Where: Lincoln Park in Grand Junction
