Celebrating Good?

We are collecting stories that we believe are the embodiment of “doing something good.” These are stories about men and women or organizations that are active in their community or making an impact in foreign countries.

Share Your Support

We are looking for a few good men. Or women. Or even children. Is there someone in your world that is “making a difference” for others? It can be an individual or an organization; the impact can be local or global. We want to share the story in hopes of inspiring others to make time in their life to “do good” too. Tell us about him or her.


We will be happy to  respond as fast as we can.


Our Mission

Civic Duty was created by brothers Julian Omidi and Michael Omidi, MD to promote and celebrate people focused on affecting positive change in this world. This practice is commonly referred to as “making a difference” and readers of Yahoo defined this self-less lifestyle as:

  • Doing something to better another person’s life.
  • Affecting someone or something in a way they would not have been otherwise.
  • Helping another even in a small way. Knowing I made his/her life easier.
  • Changing something bad into something good.
