Deeds Do Good «once a week» Challenge

“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” -Howard Zinn

Why Do Good Deeds? Frank on Vine says it best!

Join us as we pledge to do at least one good deed, every week  in 2018!

To keep it simple, a good deed is a kind action or gesture, towards yourself, someone you know, a stranger, an animal, a plant or living thing, or the environment, after which you expect no reward or recognition.

No Good Deed is too small! Opening the door for someone is a good deed; writing a letter to a company asking them to be more conscientious about their practices is a good deed; putting a smile on a stranger’s face; driving someone home; picking up a nail from the road and putting it in the garbage; putting a spider outside instead of killing it is a good deed; sending a post card with kind words to someone who helped you in the past is a good deed; helping a senior cross the street is a good deed; doing the dishes for your roommate is a good deed; asking for things in a kind way instead of acting on your anger is a good deed.  There are so many  good deeds to be done!

The idea is to make our own  individual worlds a better place, and experience the positive side effects. If we all do this, our collective world can be a better place. -We can’t find any negative side effects of doing good deeds!

This amazing advert by Brazilian ad agency Zaffari captures the Deeds Do Good philosophy perfectly.
