About House of Good Deeds

Location:

1 River Place, Suite 1406, New York, NY 10036, US

Mission Statement

The House of Good Deeds builds community, leads by example, and improves the world through Altruism, one Good Deed at a time: everyone, everywhere, every day. Our vision grows the HoGD into an international organization which organizes charitable events and fosters connections, where Altruists can meet and bond over helping others.

Description

The House of Good Deeds (formerly the Church of Good Deeds) is a belief system with no deity and no dogma other than helping people help people: we believe in Altruism, and the power of each person to make a difference. We see ourselves as optimally positioned to appeal to the millions of people who have turned away from the superstition of traditional religion, but still want to experience and inspire positive change, celebrate without limitation, and connect with others via our culture of volunteerism and communal support.

There’s more to it than that, of course, but we think we’re at the start of something great here and would welcome volunteers who share our vision.

We were founded in January 2017 by Leon Feingold and his wife Yuanyuan Wang; the week after they got engaged they found out she had terminal cancer. This charity was created as a way of paying forward on a grand scale the generosity they’d received after her diagnosis, from friends and strangers alike. Their story is viewable at http://HouseOfGoodDeeds.org/our-story
