Being a Do-Gooder is as easy as being educated about what's going on around you and in other parts of the world. Below is a short list of topical sites to get you started. Once you poke around you may find a topic you connect with. You can also begin your own research by starting at someplace like Wikipedia or creating a Google Alert to stay on top of the latest news and opinions. It's our hope that once you become an expert on a specific topic, you will take action by joining a group of like-minded individuals or maybe start your own. Knowledge isn't power unless you utilize it.
