What we're about

Never Not Doing Things (NNDT) is a free-to-play Denver CO based non-profit organization, whose mission is to build an appreciation for global and local conservation, community and arts by providing like-minded individuals the opportunity to LEARN.

LIVE – First and foremost, we all need the capacity to appreciate the World. The ONLY way that this is possible is if we uppercase-LIVE in it, not just lowercase-live in it. Get out and LIVE.

Our goal is to help you live your best life by facilitating many free/discounted experiences (from hiking and skiing to art shows and live music) organized and filled with others who share your passions.

EDUCATE – We believe that there is “no evolution without education”. How do I get into beekeeping? What do I need to know about winter camping? How can I become a recycling superstar? These are all questions that align with our Purpose (and coincidentally, all classes that we shared). Never Not Doing Things has a network of in-house and partner classes and educational experiences (many for free/donation) to help you figure out (or refresh) YOUR purpose.

ACT – Take a cue from Shia and “Just DO It” The thing is, he is 100% correct…“Yesterday you said tomorrow”. We make it easy for you to do it…whatever it is. We set up the experience and location. We work with our partners for discounts and group benefits. We use current online and social networking platforms to mitigate any complications for you so you can just get involved. That being said, we allow for multiple levels of involvement, so there is always plenty for anyone who wants to go the extra mile through further volunteering, organizing, hosting or just being an ambassador for our various causes.

RESOURCE – We offer many opportunities to provide support for our mission. We value and treasure anything you can offer, whether it be donations of time, money or just expertise. That’s right…if you fancy yourself an expert whatever-er, talk to one of our Leadership Team about opportunities to share your expertise and passion with our members and friends. In addition to the fell-goddedness of putting people on to what you love, becoming a NNDT expert has the potential for group fringe benefits including (but not limited to); cool schwag, discounted memberships, free admissions and sometimes cold hard cash. We are also looking for experts to write articles for our in-development blog that is good exposure for anyone looking to expand his/her/their portfolio.

But, also…we really need money. I know, sore topic. But the lights need to be kept on somehow. While we try to keep your cost at the bare minimums, we do appreciate any donation that you think we deserve.

NETWORK – The key element of NNDT. Build on the network. This works in a couple of ways. First, our Leadership Team networks with local organizations to build partnerships that are mutually beneficial, and provide NNDT members (you) with the best, mission friendly experiences and little to no cost. Secondly, our members (you) spread the word (through social media, word of mouth, and just regular attendance) to build on our free-to-play membership. Basically, the more people we have participating in some form or fashion, the more incentive bigger organizations have to partner with us to provide you with the goods.

What do we mean by free-to-play? It will always be 100% free to be a part of Never Not Doing Things. While we may provide premium memberships and merchandise/experiences may have a cost (though we will also always provide a ton of free stuff), you will never be forced to pay us for our basic services.

Reverend Horton Heat @ Gothic (BYO Ticket)

Gothic Theater

General admission @ $35 incl fees. Doors open @ 8 but we can meet up beforehand close by for any interested. I’ll poll @ a week prior. Visit https://www.gothictheatre.com/events/detail/359897 Bio Seeing Reverend Horton Heat live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950’s rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin’ Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass like Jerry Lee Lewis on steroids. And then there are the “Heatettes”. Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots dreamily dancing the night away. It’s like being magically transported into a Teen Exploitation picture from the 1950’s that’s currently taking place in the future.

Denver Rescue Mission Lawrence Street Lunch Service

Denver Rescue Mission

**Thanks all for the great interest in this volunteer project! With the quick fill up I’ve just taken 2 more spots so we will be a total of 10. I will keep a wait list and as a respect to others as soon as you know if you can’t go pls change your rsvp to no so someone else can fill your spot. Denver Rescue Mission is a great and well run organization and DRM staff are very appreciative of their volunteers and friendly. DRM serves nearly 300+meals each breakfast, lunch and dinner service per day for the homeless and underserved. I’ve been volunteering since Jan 2018 a couple times a month alternating between the Lawrence Street location and The Crossings that is their location for transitional housing. The volunteer shift is 10:30 am-1:30 pm. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old and anyone under 18 needs an adult chaperone. Assist with serving lunch at our Lawrence Street Community Center, an emergency facility for the homeless (includes prep work, serving food, or clean up). Duties include pre lunch prep, plating meals, clean up in the cafeteria, checking badges for homeless going through the line etc. You must have a positive attitude, be willing and eager to do any task that is asked of you and should be comfortable working with a team and in a kitchen environment as we are there to help the DRM and fulfill their mission. After lunch service we can grab something to eat close by. I’ve just limited this to 8 for the meet up so we don’t take all of the spots for the other volunteers they have who sign up as singles like I usually do:). There is a small parking lot on property and volunteer office is adjacent.
