It’s 2015! We had a great 2014 with unexpected growth and blessings that at times we felt we couldn’t keep up. But God is good and gave us just enough to help our over 300 kids.
We are excited to what the New Year has for us. We’ve learned that with every small act, great reward comes. We may not see the reward right away but the good deed seed is planted and will produce greatness at some point. We want to continue our mission of helping others and invite you to join the do good movement.
There are several ways to make a difference, what will you do in 2015?
Similar to what we do for The Orphaned Earring, the #DeedADay movement is an intentional movement to spread kindness and service to others by doing GOOD DEEDS. To help with that intention, The 100 Good Deeds Project created a beaded bracelet that encourages everyone to do a good deed a day. A good deed means you’ve gone out of our way to help someone and it only counts if the deed remains anonymous. Each time you do a good deed, move the ring on the bracelet closer to the button. It’s very simple and the bracelet itself is beautiful.
The artist behind the GOOD DEED bracelets is artists Mary Fisher, author and HIV/AIDs activist, who designed this simple but stunning bracelet strung with 100 beads by HIV positive and economically fragile women in Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, South Africa, India, Indonesia, and Haiti. These bracelets remind you to do a good deed. Every time you go out of your way to perform a gooddeed, you move the bracelet’s rubber ring closer to the 100th bead. How cool is this? It’s both a fashion statement and a cause to encourage everyone to do a GOOD DEED a day.
Let’s work together to do one small act for someone else that makes an impact. Imagine if we all did a GOOD DEED a day, what a better place the world would be. And after a year that has brought so many unfortunate events seen on the news we could use some good and start practicing as a nation. We can do this!
