If you’ve been following my blog and social media accounts you know I’m about change, action doing for others. As a homeless family that suffered poverty for years it makes my purpose in this world all the more important. I help all those I can with whatever I have – can’t imagine myself not giving my best!
When I first read about this project I had to join and support this movement. The #1GD or #GoodDeed campaign is to promote change in our world by doing an anonymous good deed each day. It can be as simple as:
- Giving a flower to a person that looks like they need a pick me up
- Paying for coffee for the person behind you
- Leaving a box of canned goods at your nearest shelter
- Volunteering at your church, community program or school
It doesn’t have to cost you anything more than your time and smile. Yet it will change a person’s day/life and whole attitude towards the world!
I’ve been sharing my good deeds in my Instagram account. For these 4 days of meeting my #GoodDeed a day I have:
- Purchased groceries for the sweet older lady ahead of me and the lady in the wheelchair behind me.
- Gave $10 Subway gift cards to the sweet homeless lady out in the rain.
- Passed out new warm socks to the homeless near work during another cold rainy night.
- Paid for a gallon of milk for a Dad that was at the counter of 7/11 and didn’t have enough money for the gallon and went to the freezer to get the smaller size. I gave the money to the cashier before he could find out it was me.
I tried my best to stay anonymous but let me tell you.. that sweet senior lady hunted me down at the grocery store’s parking lot and thanked me with tears in her eyes and a hug. The memory makes my own eyes misty. Something so little can mean the world to others and am so glad to do that for them.
The lady behind this project is Mary Fisher, author, artists and AIDS advocate. She designed this bracelet as not only a fashion statement but is also a cause. This nonprofit provides economic and eeducational opportunities to women and girls across Africa and elsewhere. Proceeds from 1GD bracelets are reinvested in the program to provide more women and girls with training more countries.
How AMAZING is that?! Not only do we get to wear a beautiful bracelet but we help many in the process – including
ourselves. I can’t explain in words how I help feed a hungry person, or change their outlook on their day by a smile and words of encouragement. My blog is dedicated to this and now I have a reminder of my purpose on my wrist. Each deed I complete I move the plastic wring over a beed until reaching the end of my 100 beads.
The bracelet is comfortable to wear and fits my 8 1/2″ wrist WITH space for larger wrists. The cord is easily adjustable and very sturdy. I am wearing the “Grapeful” design – pretty fitting – and there is various colors to choose from (glass beads to precious stones.) www.100GoodDeeds.org
