How often do you do a good deed? How would the world change if we all made an effort to do a good deed each day? Sounds like a world I would like to live in. The 100 Good Deeds Movement is giving me the kick in the pants I need to inspire me to do more for those in my community.
My goal for 2015 is to do a good deed as often as possible. I’ll use my 100 Good Deeds bracelet to track my good deeds. Each bracelet has 100 beads to signify 100 anonymous good deeds – each day you do a good deed, you move the rubber ring over the next bead. My daughter is getting in the act too. She’s coming up with a list of good deeds she wants to help with. Here is what she’s come up with so far:
- Pay for the person behind us at the donut shop
- Bake muffins for my teacher
- Walk the dogs at the animal shelter
- Make a card for someone at the hospital
Not a bad list for a nine-year-old, huh?
Designed by author, artist, and AIDS/HIV activist Mary Fisher, the 100 Good Deeds bracelet is a fashion statement and a cause. Each time you do a good deed, just move the little band over one bead. I have done 3 since New Year’s Day.
The #1GD bracelets are made by women around the world (Uganda, India, Indonesia, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda, and Haiti) who live in vulnerable circumstances. This project gives a women a way to support their families through earnings, while empowering them to also contribute to good deeds around the world. You’ll be in the company of some pretty famous women supporting this campaign too.

Awww, what a great attitude and way to approach the New Year. I would love to be a part of this!
Sounds like a wonderful way to turn our world into a brighter place. If everyone committed to doing something small for another person I’m sure we would all Pay It Forward more and teach our kids a valuable life skill.
Now THIS is something I can totally get behind! I absolutely love this! This bracelet is a wonderful reminder of how far one has come in their quest to do good! Also – they look fab! Have to get me one! Thank you for posting this. This is the type of post that makes blogging so worth it.
These are pretty bracelets and a great way to support a good cause. I always try to pay it forward whenever I see an opportunity!
I love the design and concept of this bracelet. It is a beautiful reminder to help each other everyday, and I think it’s an amazing thing to teach our children as well.
Sounds like a fantastic way to approach your days. When I lived in New Jersey I would always pay an extra toll for the next person in line. There are no tolls in Montana
