Amplifying Kindness. Making a Difference.
Welcome to Positive Charge! PDX
Kindness has generative power. When you go out of your way to lighten the load or carry the burden of another, you get a positive charge...and that's where we come in!
We are Positive Charge! PDX, a 501(c)(3) non-profit group open to everyone. We create easy, meaningful ways for people to help their community here in Portland, across the state and sometimes across borders. When that happens, kindness isn’t just expressed.
Through the years, we've become so much to so many people. Our events touch lives, not only of those whom we serve, but of those who give so generously of their time and energy.
Our core mission is built
around three core principles
Do Good Deeds
We give time, we facilitate collections, we create art for causes and we respond to immediate humanitarian needs through Emergency Kindness Events.
Through our Facebook page, we share good news happening in our city, as well as throughout the world, wherever it occurs.
Through solo programming and amplifying the efforts of other community organizations, we create relationships between individuals and groups.
Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Hear them tell you what Positive Charge! PDX brings to their lives as they fill the needs of friends and neighbors in our community.
The mission of Positive Charge! PDX is to make a positive impact in our community. For years, we've fulfilled that mission in three ways: Bringing help, hope and joy to people across Oregon, and sometimes across borders.
Collections for causes. Emergency wildfire relief. Gleaning surplus fruit. Building tiny homes. Each year, we put on dozens of feel-good, diverse events to help others.
Our activities bring people of all ages and backgrounds together to lend a hand in the community . . . and make wonderful friends along the way!
A Gateway to
Our goal is to be a gateway to service and connect people with the causes that they love. Some volunteer once, others come back time and time again. Some find one volunteer activity and stick with it, others come to a wide range of volunteer events. Whatever way you amplify kindness, we welcome it all!
Our “just add you” event structure is designed to encourage others to create an “amplify kindness” event of their own or start a group like Positive Charge! PDX in their area. It’s all part of the mission to amplify kindness all around the world.
