The Dou Good Foundation

fp_0004_41193The Dou Good Foundation

was established in June of 2009 with the goal of helping different causes around the world. This "charity for charities" does not focus its resources in any one area. Instead, the Dou Good Foundation makes a donation to a different person or cause every month, with the goal of making the world a better place by touching as many lives as possible.

FoodWhat we do

We always wanted to start a foundation.  A large one... but until then we might as well start with a small one!  We want to help the world with one good deed a month.  We are starting with our own money, small money!  But we are looking into the future with big aspirations...
