G4G logoWith the start of a new year, many make resolutions to “give-back” or to volunteer in the community so I wanted to nudge any of you who may have contemplated this but have yet to find the right opportunity by talking about Gay for Good (G4G).

G4G originally started in Los Angeles in 2008 and now there are chapters in Boston, Chicago, Orange County, Pittsburgh, San Diego and San Francisco.  Check out one of these local chapters and get involved.  You’ll not only help make your community a better place, but you’ll be able to meet like minded individuals in an organized social setting.G4G12
