Goodnet connects people around the world with opportunities for doing good - it’s that simple. Our writers and editors have eyes and ears across the world of good doing - from volunteering, charity work, microfunding and creativity to green tech, water conservation, collaborative consumption and mindful living. It’s a network that empowers users to independently take positive action and amplify their goodness - anytime, anywhere and in the field of interest closest to their hearts.
WHAT IS GOODNET
Doing good is a state of mind that can accompany every action and shine through every thought. Doing good starts from within, so even the smallest smile can change something in your life and make a difference in the reality of the people around you. Ultimately, we believe that a critical mass of people who want good, think good, speak good and do good can generate positive transformation in the world. Sounds good, right?
