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...

Theotokos Greek Orthodox Girl's Orphanage in Bakeswar, a village located outside of Calcutta, was started in 1999 by the current Bishop of Madagascar, Ignatios and Sister Nectaria Paradisi, the orphanage's current director.The orphanage provides food, shelter, love and education for over 100 Indian girls. In the past year, it has adopted twenty-eight girls,sent four to college and opened a boy's orphanage.

In addition to building a water well for the orphanage, the campaign's purpose is to garner widespread support to fundraise for the orphanage in small, affordable amounts towards a tangible cause. The Lucky Girls production team will utilize social networking by tweets and facebook posts sharing information on all the individuals and communities involved. The goal is to create an online platform for a community dedicated to social change. The campaign gives families who participate  an opportunity to educate their children on poverty, as it exists today in developing countries and respond in ways that can alleviate these challenging conditions.  The campaign also seeks to gain involvement of young adults by providing them with innovative programs that can be easily shared through their social networking tools. Such a program will allow youths the opportunity to raise funds in honor of their birthday by asking friends and family to donate to the orphanage in lieu of a birthday gift. Additionally, the campaign hopes to include business communities by offering restaurants and businesses an option to market a product or service by giving a percentage of their sales to the orphanage.  Another option to help raise awareness and funds for the "4,000 Raindrops" campaign is to host a benefit screening of Lucky Girls Movie in your home, church, university or school!
