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.
Humanists Doing Good will be meeting Sunday at 10:00 am to noon at the Mesa Mall Community Meeting Room. We will be having bagels and coffee and watching a movie called The Nature of Existence. If you would like to bring anything else to eat or drink, please feel free to do so. The movie does contain some adult content and language that we can discuss in advance with anyone who might be concerned. Before we begin the movie we plan to discuss the previous good deeds and to do some discussion about our next good deed event.
Film overview: Filmmaker Roger Nygard roams the globe to the source of each of the world's philosophies, religions, and belief systems. He interviews spiritual leaders, scholars, scientists, artists, pizza chefs, and others who have influenced, inspired, or freaked out humanity.

Our leaf raking volunteers went down Rood Avenue in Grand Junction and offered to rake lawns free of charge and with no strings attached for as many people as we could during two hours. We ended up helping a variety of people who proved grateful for the assistance. We were even delivered a batch of cookies by one household we helped. It was especially rewarding for our volunteers when we were able to assist some individuals who were unable to rake their own lawns for medical reasons. This proved to be a fun way to get out and do a random good deed that people were absolutely not expecting.
After the leaf raking, we delivered carloads of coats and winter items to Caitlyn's Warm Hearts Project. We had the pleasure of speaking with Caitlyn's mother and we estimate that will have delivered around 100 coats, several stacks of blankets and some other useful items by the time everything is compiled and delivered.
On October 30th from 10:00 am to noon we will be carrying out a leaf raking good deed event. We are currently looking for a few homes with people who are unable to rake their own leaves or would have great difficulty in doing so to assist with no strings attached. If you know of anyone who could greatly benefit from our assistance, please let us know. We ask that volunteers bring any raking tools, gloves and leaf bags that they may have available to assist in completing this good deed. Also remember to wear your volunteer shirts if you have received one, but please don't let not having a shirt stop you from participating. This is an excellent opportunity for people who have not yet volunteered to get involved in doing a good deed for the sake of doing good. We will likely meet at 10:00 am to coordinate and distribute tools to accomplish the task.
