Do Something Good

Let us tell you a little bit

About Us

Do Something Good™ was started by a group of people who have each worked for and with non-profit organizations for over 20 years.

doctor2We understand what charities and non-profits need to do to do their work efficiently while also appreciating how difficult it can be for those of us who wish to help to find the best organizations doing the most good. After all, not everybody has the time to volunteer at our local soup kitchen, let alone go to a place like Haiti or Darfur when we see people suffering and want to help.

But through Do Something Good™, you  can make a real difference around the world or in your local community in seconds. Do Something Good™ categorizes the organizations based on their area of expertise and screens every organization listed to ensure that they are well run and will be conscientious with your hard-earned contributions. Just pick your favorites.

(Every organization listed either has a three star or better rating from Charity Navigator or has passed objective standards based on an amalgamation of guidelines established by a number of watchdog organizations including the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance).

And, while Do Something Good™ has expenses related to operating this phone app, we too are committed to operating responsibly and ensuring that as much of your donation as possible finds its way directly into the important work of the charities you have selected to support, so we’ve limited our fees to just $.99 per transaction.

Now, that is something to feel good about.

Do Something Good™ allows you to turn your emotions into actions! While laying in bed or walking along the street, when you see people suffering, animals being abused, or the environment in trouble now you can do something about it  with just a few taps on your phone.

Sochi Olympics 2014

Russia stirred up controversy a few months ago when President Vladimir Putin signed an anti-gay bill into law that bans the “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors.” The country that will host the Winter Olympics next year in Sochi has now put many LGBT Olympic athletes, administrators, reporters and fans that plan to attend […]

Why We March

Fifty years ago today, the honorable Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. orated his historic “I Have A Dream” speech at the March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom demonstration. This speech was a key component in the Civil Rights Movement because it was broadcasted to every household in the country and made every citizen aware of the goals the Civil […]

Voting Rights: Why They’re Threatened

After reading this Think Progress article the other day, I started thinking about the voting rights issues that have surfaced as a result of SCOTUS’s June decision that struck down Section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Act. When the Voting Rights Act was enacted in 1965, Sections 5 and 4(b) regulate the preclearance of certain state and local government’s voting laws […]

If You Care About Something, Do Something

It seems that the word “philanthropy” has an elite connotation and is associated with multimillionaires attending extravagant black-tie charity benefits. However, when you look at the definition of the word this is not necessarily the case. phi•lan•thro•py /noun/ – the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money […]








Q. What is Do Something Good?

A. Do Something Good is a free mobile phone app offering people the opportunity to turn their compassion and empathy into positive action instantly.  At Do something Good you can elect to support any of the important non-profit and charitable institutions listed safely and securely.  As long as you have your phone with you, through Do Something Good you can provide support whenever events move you to act.  And that is something you can feel good about.


Q.  I don’t see the organization I’d like to support listed?

A.  Go back to the organizational categories and review all of the listings.  If you still don’t see the organization listed, let us know who they are on the form available through the app and we’ll do everything we can to get them listed.


Q. Can I still make a gift through Do Something Good if I don’t have an Amazon or Paypal account?

A. You will need to create an account at Amazon and/or PayPal to contribute through Do Something Good but once you create an account by following the new account instructions at Amazon and/or PayPal, you will not have to do so again no matter how often you elect to contribute.


Q. Can I bypass Do Something Good and just give directly to the charity of my choice?

A. Absolutely.  Do Something Good is designed to make giving to multiple organizations easy, safe and immediate but our primary objective is to help non-profits who are doing good work receive the support they need to positively impact on the world.   So, if you would rather mail a check directly to the charity of your choice or find them on-line and give through their website, please do so!


Q. I made a recurring contribution, which I would now like to cancel. 

A. In order to cancel any automatically recurring contribution you can contact the organization to which you made the gift and ask them to cancel your recurring gift or you may simply go to the App, where you can locate any recurring gifts you have made and select the ones you wish to cancel .  If you have any problems, or if it’s easier you may also send us an e-mail directly by clicking on the ‘support” at the bottom of this website and let us know what exactly you would like us to do.


Q. I tried to download the app, but it’s not working.

A. Most likely your connection to the internet was not strong enough.  Try again from another location or using a Wi-Fi connection.


Q. Why is there a time delay when the app connects to Amazon /Paypal?

A. By partnering with Amazon and Paypal we are able to ensure your transaction is securely processed and your personal information is completely safe and protected.  However, connecting to these established processing companies, can take a minute or two.  Your contribution means a great deal to the organizations you choose to contribute and the security of your personal information means a great deal to us so we hope you will be patient.  Changing the world sometimes takes few seconds.
