The Do Good Bus Takes Volunteers to Undisclosed Locations to Help Out

The Do Good Bus is a Los Angeles-based volunteer organization designed to add an air of mystery and fun into volunteer work. The Do Good Bus has a simple premise, taking groups of do-gooders to sites around the city to perform services such as building houses and planting gardens. Where the fun factor comes in is that each day's task and destination are unknown to the bus' volunteers.

The Do Good Bus has a great reason for keeping its activities a secret from volunteers, saying, "We keep our rides a secret to add an element of fun, but also to avoid any preconceived ideas or opinions about the cause our volunteers will be helping. This allows volunteers to show up with an open mind ready to help." "Fun" would probably not be the word most people would use to describe volunteering, but that could change if more organizations adopted the Do Good Bus' mysterious style.
