‘12 Days 4 Good’

Inspired by Christmas Hampers and Turkey Trucks volunteers, House of Friendship (HOF) invites everyone in our community to get involved in 12 Days 4 Good during the Holiday season and to do more good deeds. Sign up and pledge to do 12 consecutive days of good deeds for the good of people and causes in our community. We will get you started with a daily theme, examples, and stories of 12 official Do-Gooders, who will be blogging, tweeting and posting about their good deeds. We will also give you the tools to join in the conversation and share your good deeds. Together, we can inspire others to get into the true spirit of the season, and make a BIG difference in our community.
