We always love seeing what the cool dads of the world are up to, because not only are they pretty awesome at this whole child-rearing thing, they’ve got some great ideas about how to make the world a better place. In fact, that’s the goal behind the new initiative Dads 4 Change and we’re already fans.

Created by dads, popular bloggers, and friends of CMT Carter Gaddis and Whit Honea, Dads 4 Change is a place to find and share cool causes that can spark interest and spur action by more dads. While volunteering may have traditionally been seen as a mom’s activity, fathers also care about the world in which their kids are growing up. Dads 4 Change offers them some smart resources for getting involved, no matter where their passions may lie.

I especially like the section on the site featuring causes that kids can join. Such a cool opportunity for dad-kid bonding. (And you know, mom-dad-kid bonding too, if you’d like.) Right now the site has got info on orgs we love like 1Voice Foundation, Cure JM, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and coming soon, two favorites of ours, ONE.org and Shot@Life. There will be new blog entries each week featuring more terrific opportunities.

Dads 4 Change has so many inspiring ideas for volunteering and getting involved in great causes, that we could spend all of our free time doing just that. Which is actually a pretty good thought.
