Why Do Good Deeds? I found Frank on Vine, and he says it best:
Join me as I pledge to do at least one good deed, every single day, in 2014!
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, giving yourself a nice honest compliment, or 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. See? So many ways to do good deeds.
The idea is to make our own individual worlds a better place, and experience the positive side effect of feeling good as a result. Maybe if we all do this, our collective world can be a better place? -I can’t find any negative side effects in trying.
This amazing advert by Brazilian ad agency Zaffari captures the Deeds Do Good philosophy perfectly.
