Purpose

When asked why, we emphatically say why not? The world can always use a little more good and we want to do our part. 5 Days for the Good is an initiative designed to provide a spark, a method, and a community hub for contributing to a net positive in the world. Participants often do many good things throughout the year and in most everything they do but 5DFTG is an opportunity to focus that energy into a substantial effort across a 5 day campaign of giving. #5DaysForTheGood on social to plug in to all of the good being done.

How to Participate

5 Days for the Good is generally spread through a process of nomination wherein businesses who participate will nominate other businesses that they know will happily join the initiative. These organizations will schedule 5 benevolent acts over the course of a 5 day week (presumably Monday through to Friday). On your first day of participation you will send out your nomination. This way the next organization to pick up the baton will have a week head’s up to plan their week of activities.
