Learn more about the day in which good actions change the lives of many people.

This is a solidarity and citizenship initiative that encourages voluntary work among several people from companies, institutes and civil society organizations, in favor of community development.

In 2016, the Day of Doing Good will be something even bigger:

A continuous wave that will spread good throughout the year, putting into practice good volunteering initiatives. Do your part and join this chain of solidarity.

Join this big voluntary mobilization and help changing the lives of more and more people.

 

Our objectives:

To contribute to a good relationship between participants and the community.

To promote the articulation of the public and private sectors and civil society.

To support the development of skills among participants.

To celebrate the execution of big voluntary actions.

To drive engagement for ongoing voluntary work.

A big chain formed by those who believe in the strength of good actions. See the actions below!

Step by step.

Being a volunteer is not about executing a task and that’s it.
Until the day of the big action, you need to conclude very important steps for the actions to be successfully executed.

Check out a summary of the 12 steps to do good here.

1- FORM YOUR VOLUNTEER GROUP

Create a group and invite your colleagues. An ideal group should have 5-10 people as organizers and many others as volunteers.

2 - IDEAL VOLUNTEER WEBSITE

Register or update your group’s page at the Ideal Volunteer website. Invite all members to do the same!

Access the website to check the deadlines!

3- DEFINE THE ACTION

Think about the action and assess the main needs. All actions have their value, but it’s important to identify the needs of the community and people involved.

4- PLAN THE ACTION

Think about all activities necessary for the action to happen. Visit the location and engage the community and volunteers in defining the activities.

5- HEALTH, SAFETY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Count on the support from a qualified professional to guide the activities planned for your voluntary action. Prevention is key!

6- WORK ON A TIMETABLE

It will help you fulfill the necessary steps. Write down the main activities and define the deadlines for them to happen.

7- FIND PARTNERSHIPS

Seek support from public and private sectors and civil society (such as NGOs). If the action is in a public space, contact the relevant public agency for authorization.

8- PARTICIPATION OF SUPPLIERS AND CLIENTS

If suppliers and clients join the action, inform that there will be no commercial benefits. They can offer financial support and collaborators.

9- REGISTER THE ACTION ON THE WEBSITE

Access the website and create your action providing the requested information. Actions executed outside Brazil must also be registered.

10- SPREAD THE ACTION AND MOBILIZE PARTNERSHIPS

Advertise the action internally and externally: at the bottom of the website there’s a press kit with pieces to help you in this effort!

11- TIME TO ACT

Bring to life everything that was planned. Organize groups by activities, and invite a volunteer to be the leader of each group.

12- AFTER THE DAY OF DOING GOOD

Update the results on the Ideal Volunteer website. Also ask the benefitted organization to register the results. And take a lot of pictures!
