There are many people in Miami that want to give back, become a part of the community, and generally pay it forward. It is a new year and time to refresh your goals for 2012. Hopefully, one thing on your list is to find a way to volunteer or donate. There are many places in Miami and around the world that deserve a helping hand. We are grateful to have worked on this website to now be at the point where it can be a source of information to others.
Our desire is to present some opportunities that you might not have thought about or known. I was reading Marie Claire magazine when it occurred to me that I can include their list on goLIVEmiami. If it were not for the subscription I received as a gift, I would not have discovered some of the organizations I read about while reading the article.
This list will be evolving. go LIVE miami welcomes you to submit a place, link, suggestion in the comments section below or through our contact page. Your submission will be added to the list.
