Doing Good Is Simple

We all want to do good, but often, we can be overwhelmed by our busy schedules, family commitments, and the feeling that we might not be making much of an impact anyway.

In Doing Good Is Simple, Chris Marlow gently challenges us with grace and humor to realize that we are both called and equipped to make a difference in the world and reminds us that doing good can be simple!

Make A Difference Right Where You Are
We all have the capacity to Do Good for the world, but sometimes, we don’t know how. We’re afraid that our efforts might be too little, or worse – that we’ll have to make a radical shift in our lives, career, or even our location. If that’s you, I have good news for you. You can make a difference right where you are!

Do GOOD Well

Innovate, and Help (don’t Hurt!)
We live busy lives, so it’s important that the time we take to Do Good is meaningful. That’s why we all need guides to help us find the best way to use our personal human capital most effectively. My organization, Help One Now, continues to innovate in the non-profit space by seeking the absolute best paths to inspire change in communities, empower our local leaders, and see the lives of children around the world improve.

Do GOOD Together

It’s All About The Tribe
The bottom line is this: no one person can truly change the world as effectively as we can if we all Do Good Together. Everyone, from lawyers, dentists, and teachers to cooks, stay-at-home parents, and entrepreneurs, has unique gifts and skills that could help solve the problems that plague struggling communities around the world. We need you!

Do GOOD. Do GOOD Well. Do GOOD Together.

Through simple acts of kindness such as child sponsorship, throwing garage sale parties, or even just donating $10 every month, the Help One Now tribe has:

Chris Marlow

Chris Marlow founded Help One Now after meeting a starving young orphan at an abandoned gas station in Zimbabwe. That encounter compelled him to dedicate his life to seeking justice by empowering high-capacity local leaders to care for orphans, vulnerable children, and see their communities transform. His passion is organizing tribes of everyday people to partner with global movements that do good.

Chris is a sought-after speaker on topics of justice, mission, leadership, and organizational development, and he is also available to coach leaders who are looking to launch, grow, and sustain their organization well.

Chris lives in downtown Raleigh, NC, with his wife, two daughters, and a German Shepherd pup named Skye.

"Chris speaks from a place of humility and brokenness that will leave you hanging on his every word. His talks will leave you unsettled yet stimulated to launch a movement of your own to make a difference in the world." ~Jennie Allen
