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.
