Brad Jamison has put his Good Samaritan know-how in a one-stop, site: Good-Citizen.org. He launched the website in response to requests for the how’s and why’s of helping others and as a platform to encourage service and philanthropy.
“It combines insights, information, and I hope inspiration into one place that can be a jumping off point for others to get involved,” the Hancock Park resident said.
The lifelong volunteer and a board member of the Hollywood Boys & Girls Club upped his game last year when he completed 30 Days of Service with as many organizations. He planted trees with Tree People, went to Skid Row and played bingo with Big Brothers on his odyssey.
He was honored for his effort last month with a Daily Points of Light Award from the Points of Light Foundation, which recognizes “the power of the individual to spark change and improve the world.
“I am deeply touched and will do my best to continue to live up to what this honor represents, said Jamison.
His new site includes resources and tools he’s learned along the way. He has a blog and gives tips for how to be a successful volunteer; show up and be on time are among suggestions.
The benefits of service are listed as well.
Helping others transforms your life, and the world, says Jamison.
