The International Friend Connection was born out of an organization David Good originally started in 2014, West Michigan Geeks. During the COVID lockdown, David Good saw that people would need to see people face to face to survive the loneliness of lockdown. He founded the International Friend Connection in 2020 and worked every day during the COVID lockdown to connect people worldwide and improve people’s quality of life and chances for survival. It evolved into an all-volunteer organization that has impacted tens of thousands of lives and has groups in many cities across continents and countries worldwide. Our goal is to help one million people by the year 2030 and help wipe out the scourge of social isolation and loneliness that is affecting the world. We exist to promote peace and understanding between all different types of people around the world.
The International Friend Connection has done almost 5,000 in-person and online events since 2014 consisting of almost 10,000 hours of FREE events.
Everything is better when we all work together.
