“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.
