The DO Foundation is an organization that is dedicated particularly to giving homeless individuals hope by supplying their immediate needs. The workers of the DO Foundation go "to the streets" to communicate directly with homeless individuals to assess, then meet these needs. The founder, Brian O'Neal; Co-founder, Kelly Adolph and a myriad of hardworking volunteers work tirelessly to abolish homelessness in and around the Detroit area. "Team DO" of The DO Foundation also spreads awareness to across the country about the misconceptions that many have regarding homeless individuals. I have become more sensitive to the needs of homeless individuals through the knowledge that I have received from the DO Foundation. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group of individuals who truly care about the people they serve. Even after several hardships befell the organization, the response is always the same, "The Mission must continue". I salute the DO Foundation for their hard work and dedication. They are truly a top rated Non Profit in my eyes. For more information about the DO Foundation or to donate, please go to www.dofoundation.net
I initially started supporting the DO Foundation (DOF), because of its founder Brian O'Neal. He has a passion for helping those in need. It gives me great pleasure to know that there is an organization that is truly interested in helping those in need. The DOF's commitment in helping end homelessness can set a standard that other organizations can follow, by going in the communities where help is needed; be visible and talk to individuals to determine their need and just show people that you genuinely care. Mr. O’Neal not only goes into the areas where the help is needed, but he also informs DOF supporters of the need that is greatly among us. That's why I will continue to support Brian O’Neal and the DOF.
The DO Foundation is doing a tremendous amount of work to help the homeless. Continue to support this outstanding organization!
DO Foundation works directly with those that are living in a state of homelessness. By hitting the streets and providing for the immediate needs. We are working diligently to open our first of many resource centers to aid and assist with the specific needs of the homeless. We have had tremendous success and many success stories.
I live in Nepal which is very far away from USA. But from face book & from some source I come to know that do Foundation working for humanitarian & when I check out yes really Do Foundation doing it. & Brain is real human who is spending his time/ money for shake of basic human need. & aware other too to be good human. There R lot Social Organization opened by people to earn name/fame/money but Do is doing as they talk (really social motive). Keep it up >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
DO Foundation is a wonderful organization simply by the fact that they go out on the streets to help homeless people. The founder is very compassionate and it shows by his actions. I truly believe he wants to make a difference. They go out of their way to help as many people as they can. Less talk and more action is what they believe in. If we had more organizations like DO Foundation I believe we really could eradicate homelessness in our country and possibly around the world.
There are charities, foundations, and groups that talk about how to deal with alcoholism, substance abuse, mental illness, and of course homelessness. There are people who regale you with stories of how much they gave to this disaster, or such and such cause - after all, "every little bit helps" - well, I think that is only the beginning. Sure, money helps, however, in my book, it is WHAT YOU DO that matters...talking is just blah blah, money can sometimes be mis-managed, and checkbook-charity is just that - one facet of giving. The DO Foundation is about ACTION - stopping in the middle of your busy day to help someone in need...giving up a hotel room for an elderly person because you can. Providing "DO Bags", helping with transitional housing, 24-hour access to laundry facilities, treatment program referrals, on-the-spot emergency asistance - this is REAL ACTON. I completely support the DO Foundation for what they DO.
I truly believe in this charity, I love what the Do Foundation stands for. I will do anything I can to help this foundation succeed at its mission. I ve been homeless once and so this cause is very dear to my heart. The founder Brian O Neal is a great person and humanitarian. He actually live as a homeless man himself for two week so that he would personally know what it was like. He gives his celebrity status and his time to make this cause a great one. He is honest and dedicated to what he believes in...... I do too..!
i read the posts brian displays on facebook. this guy is passionate, compassionate and so caring about his DO foundation project. he has a gentle, natural way of drawing you in and helping you to remember lifes priorities. i know he spends time on the streets directly helping homeless people and then more time raising awareness, raising funds and raising his family. a true inspiration. a pleasure to know there are men like him around.
I have watched Brian Oneal from a distance exhibit his passion for wanting to extend love and what he has been blessed with with those less fortunate. How better to fulfill this passion than to have an organization such as (DO). This Foundation is giving back to those who have in many cases "given much" themselves, and now because of circumstances find themselves in a position where they have hit their "bottom." This Foundation and those like it need everyone's support because truly, a little bit goes a very long way. Continued success to this organization and what and who it represents.
A blessing Being Able to Help Others. Do foundation Was Just What Was Needed for the big push, I am very proud to be part of this organization. Do Something is the Beginning of a Stage Without End. Thank you all for making it possible a coat, a hand, love.
I was recently helped by the Do Foundation after a month unsuccessfully trying to get help from over 20 organizations in the state of Florida. Everyone I spoke to at the foundation were extremely kind, and showed great concern for my daughters and my well being. While we waited for transportation back home to Canada, (which they arranged) they made sure we had a comfortable place to stay and food. I am forever grateful to everyone in the organization for their genuine concern and kindness they showed to my family.
I give to several organizations via my workplace but I never really know if my contributions are helpful. I was amazed by Brian's talent as an artist. However, as I got to know more about the DO Foundation's role and the work that Brian and his amazing team are performing to abolish homelessness, I am truly in awe. I rallied additional pennies in my budget to aid the DO Foundation in its endeavors. I've never personally been homeless but I watched my mother struggle for years trying to prevent us from being homeless and hungry. If we were growing up now I'm not sure if she would have been as successful. God has given us a simple but powerful message. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!!! The DO Foundation is doing this for us.
I follow this organization because I know the organizers really care. As someone who is among the less fortunate, I give back where I live through time and deeds because as a graduate student…I do not have a lot of money. This organization continuously inspires me to do what I can where I am… When I graduate, outside of science education, my research focus will be on studying and mapping (via GIS) issues (policy, perceptions, community networks) related to poverty and social justice. This is a great organization.
I have watched Brian from another city & state; I wish we had a Brian O'Neal where I live. I have donated to his cause & I recommend everyone do their part in their cities!!!
DO Fondation is a great organization seeking to help the homeless. It offers help to the homeless, which is much needed! Its people like Brian O'Neal that reach out and inspire other to reach out.
The DO Foundation is a grassroots organization that gets to the heart of the plight of homelessness. It's founder not only talks the talk, but walks the walk in order to best serve his constituents. By living the life, he can better assess the needs of the population being served. Kudos to the DO Foundation for working so tirelessly with the homeless population.
As the name says, this organization is not about talking about things, but DOING something to better the issue of homelessness. As the global and Stateside economy suffer from a decline too complex to go into details about, the DO Foundation is right where help is needed: In the streets, shelters, WITH the people in need. If there was proof for "Walk the talk", the DO Foundation is it. The hosts of the American Smooth Jazz Awards must have felt the same way, when giving their founder Brian O'Neal the Humanitarian Award of the Year.
I HAVE DONE LOTS OF VOLENTEER WORK MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE DO FOUNDATION. SPEAKING WITH THE FOUNDER HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HELP OTHERS, LEARNING AN READING TALKING WITH THE PEOPLE THAT'S ALSO AFFLIATED WITH DO HELP CHANGE MY WAY OF THINKING EVERY HELPING HAND HELPS .

GOING OUT TO THE PUBLIC MAKING SURE PEOPLE KNOW THAT THEY ARE THERE FOR THEM SOME EVEN BRING MAIL THEY DONT UNDERSTAND "THEY EVEN GO THE EXTRA MILE TO READ MAIL THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND! GOD BLESS DO KEEP THE BLESSED WORK YOU DELIVER TO GODS PEOPLE!
The work the DO Foundation takes on is very challenging, but they are NOT afraid! Brian O'Neal and his staff of volunteers have a solid, selfless mission to work with the homeless and they are champions beyond measure. They are to be highly commended for going directly to those on the streets to find out what is needed most. They're goal of having a "one stop shop" to provide resources for those in need is very innovative. I have spoken personally to Brian and know that his passion is genuine and far-reaching.
I ADMIRE ANYBODY THAT'S TRYING TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE ..THE 'DO FOUNDATION",INC IS A BRILLANT ORGANIZATION & WITH GOOD PEOPLE BEHIND THE REASON FOR WITH IT STANDS FOR I LOVE THEM....& SUPPORT THEM.
I donated to the "Do Foundation" because I believe whole heartedly in their mission to irradicate homelessness in our country. Dr Cornel West once said, "In order to lead the people, you have to serve the people." The Do Foundation is committed to leading people out of their state of homelessness by helping to serve their needs. What a GREAT humanitiarian organization. Too often we get caught up in our own lives, desires and wants that we often give no consideration to those less forturnate. What a sad sate of mind to live in. I tip my hat to Brian ONeal and the Do Foundaton for taking a stand and not just "talking the talk" but "walking the walk."
I have personally witnessed the Do Foundation exercise charity, and assistance to the homeless & less fortunate, not just in Michigan, but many other states as well! The Do Foundation's desire and willingness to serve & provide for the homeless knows no limits, and its members really "DO" care! I support the efforts of the Do Foundation 100%!
I met Brian at a prevent homeless fund raising event. When I heard him speak and came to understand his mission I knew he was someone who truly has a heart for caring about our fellow man. When we care of the least of our community, our society is better.
Brian O'Neal's compassion toward our fellowmen is exemplary. I have watched him grow from his experience with this foundation. DO Foundation creates the avenue to help serve others. I fully support this work.
We support the DO Foundation. I have worked with non-profits for the past 15 years and the DO Foundation is awesome at getting the direct needs met of their consumers. The founder has literally walked in the shoes of his consumers to find out what needs can be met immediately. His continued efforts will be an ongoing asset to our community
THIS BROTHER IS AN AWESOME HUMAN BEING. WHAT DO FOUNDATION DOES FOR MY HOME TOWN OF DETROIT,MI IS OVER THE TOP. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT DO FOUNDATION IS THIS: WHAT THEY COLLECT THEY DISTRIBUTE "IMMEDIATELY" NO RED TAPE, THIS BROTHER NOT ONLY TAKES IT TO THE STREET, HE LIVED ON THE STREETS WITH THE HOMELESS TO UNDERSTAND AND GET TO KNOW WHERE AND WHAT BROUGHT THEY PEOPLE TO THIS PLACE. DO FOUNDATION IS NEEDED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. THANK YOU MOST TALENTED BRIAN ONEAL AND YOUR DO FOUNDATION FAMILY!!1
I support DO Foundation, Inc for the good heart service that is being done to assist our families and friends in their times of need. God gave us material things to not hold on to them but to share and assist others. That's what DO does. Great work and when I make my over flow you will be one of the first I support. Great job Brotha! God bless you and the Do Foundation, Inc. Peace
I support the DO Foundation, because the founder is a man who REALLY cares about homelessness and the homeless. He and his organization go above and beyond what most people do for the homeless.
The DO Foundation is the only charitable organization that I have ever been associated with that take the donations directly to the streets, directly to the people who need them most, the homeless. And the DO Foundation does this on a regular basis, not just once in awhile. They make a REAL difference.
I support this organization because the Founder believes enough in what he is doing that he put himself in situations to experience homelessness first hand. How amazing is it that a man in his position would do that and more than once. I believe that one should try to help those less fortunate than themselves. This organization is the result of someone who saw a need and was willing to put forth the initiative to try do that.
The DO Foundation is great, because the response is immediate. You don't have to submit essays, stand in line, be question or drilled. The DO Foundation is about helping where they are when they needed. ZERO Red Tape.
I love the DO Foundation and what they do to combat and end homelessness! They inspire me so. They don't just talk the talk. They walk the walk and DO for others in need. Brian O'Neal the founder along with Kellly Adolph, co-founder go out of their way to help others. Behind the scene are other strong warriors too contributing with paperwork, phone calls and long hours! All playing a KEY PART!! Brian also donates his shows to help others and made a song "Dreams In Color" which is AWESOME!! I believe we are here on earth to help one another especially those in need. The DO Foundation prepares DO Bags, through donated funds, with essential items for those in need to survive with for the day! They go out in full force with helping others. Sending out awareness to all who will listen in hopes that they will feel the need to help others. The Documentaries and videos are straight and to the point! The Cause is GREAT and many are joining it. Its All About HUMANS HELPING HUMANS!! Something this great can't go unnoticed! It inspires me to go out and DO! I give to the DO Foundation and to those in my local area! I feel good when I go out and help others! You don't have to be rich to contribute. A smile, a hug or a conversation to those in need goes a long way! Become a team member www.dofoundation.net I love the website! There's Room For Many OR More!!
