I’ve always found the philosophy of do unto others, as you would have them do unto you a righteous one. I embrace the idea of random acts of kindness and karma, the idea of putting into the world what you would like to see. This is a good way to be and something that I feel very strongly about passing on to my daughters. I want this to be part of my legacy.
This year, I’m setting a new kind of resolution and it’s all about doing good deeds. I’m going to be the change that I want to see in the world. I’ve joined the #DeedADay movement and my goal is to wear my bracelet and do 1 good deed a day. I’d like to encourage my readers to join with me. Imagine if we all did a good deed a day, what a better place the world would be. Imagine the ripple effects in the world, if every single one of us did one single deed?
I’m joining the The 100 Good Deeds organization in setting a resolution to do a good deed a day! The 100 Good Deeds bracelet is both a fashion statement and a cause to encourage everyone to do a good deed.
A good deed means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone and only counts if the deed remains anonymous. No need for thanks. Each time you do a good deed, move the ring on the bracelet closer to the button.
The 1GD bracelets are designed by Mary Fisher, author, artists and AIDS advocate and made by vulnerable women who’ve been trained for this work in Uganda, India, Indonesia, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda and Haiti. This project gives women a way to support their families through earnings, while empowering them to also contribute to good deeds around the world. Proceeds from 1GD bracelets are reinvested in the program to provide more women and girls with more training in more countries.
I love looking down at my bracelet and seeing the good I’ve done. The bracelet inspires me with the possibilities of all the good that I can still do. I want to share that with everyone I know, especially my own daughters.
I’m doing my one good deed a day, are you?
