Deed A Day is sponsoring today’s post, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*ad
New Years is almost around the corner and it is time to be thinking about New Year's resolutions. There are those resolves to continue to lose some extra pounds, exercise more, eat better, spend more time with extended family, etc. . I am sure you know that list only too well. However, I also want to make sure to do a little bit more, like join the #DeedADay 100 Good Deed movement!
Throughout the year I have done good deeds, like giving up my upgraded seat on a flight to Europe to a child, so she could sit closer to her family, offered a helping hand during home renovations, brought someone in need a meal, and other deeds here and there. It is a great feeling when you know that you stepped away from your usual self-centered way of doing things and took time out to do something good for someone else. But this year, I want to do even more and use the 100 Good Deeds Bracelet around my wrist to remind me each day to look for ways, no matter how small, to do good deeds, because that's what #DeedADay is all about.
Each time a good deed is done, I can move the rubber ring on the bracelet over 1 of the 100 hematite colored beads and closer to the 1GD button. It serves as a little reminder to pay more attention to how I can help others. When all the beads are on the other side, besides feeling wonderful that I have accomplished my goal, I also know that I have enriched the life of someone else. I also like being able to tell others what the #DeedADay bracelet stands for and hope to encourage others to join in the movement.
About 100 Good Deeds Bracelets
The bracelets were designed by Mary Fisher, who is an activist, artist, author and HIV/AIDs activist, who has dedicated her life to working with women in developing countries. As the force behind the 100 Good Deeds Bracelet, Mary empowers women in Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda, and Haiti, many infected with HIV, to help her make the 100 Good Deeds bracelets. The bracelet is not only a fashion statement, but a cause to encourage everyone to do good deeds. 100% of proceeds from sales are reinvested in the 100 Good Deeds Program.
So Please join me in #DeedADay
So many bloggers and social media influencers have joined the cause and are on a mission to sweep the web with good deed resolutions! This collaboration involves networks like Clever Girls Collective, Everywhere Society, One2One Network, actresses and actors (see here) you, me, and everyone we know can resolve to do one good deed a day in 2015. Just imagine our power when we join forces to make this world a better place for everyone through a daily commitment to do good things together? Is that not the best?!
My GoodDeedADay was made by Colin from Haiti - thanks Colin!
