With us being smack dab in the middle of the giving season, I thought it is a good a time as any to share that I’m joining the the 100 Good Deeds organization in setting New Year’s resolutions that do something for someone else, vs. purely concentrating on personal resolutions. So while losing weight, living a healthy life style and finding love are still tops on my list for 2015, I’m now adding the 100 Good Deeds (1GD) bracelet and the #DeedADay movement.
These bracelets are designed by Mary Fisher, author, artists and AIDS advocate; and are made by vulnerable women who’ve been trained for this work in Uganda, India, Indonesia, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda, and IniInand Haiti. This project gives women a way to support their families through earnings, while empowering them to also contribute to good deeds around the world. Proceeds from the 100 Good Deeds bracelets are reinvested in the program to provide more women and girls with more training in more countries. So as you can see, the 100 Good Deeds bracelet is not only a fashion statement that allows you to move the ring on the bracelet closer to the button, with each good deed, but a great way to give back to the wonderful women who create them.
The beauty about good deeds is that you not only get to help someone through acts of kindness, but you inturn do wonders for yourself. Because when you give without expecting anything in return, life always finds a way to give back. Imagine what a beautiful place it would be if we all did a good deed a day. The 100 Good Deeds bracelet gives us 100 changes to, while reminding us to be grateful for what we have. Together we can change the world, one deed, one bead, one act of kindness at a time.

I love this idea and I think it’s great that your participating! I’m at home now with my baby so I’m not out and about around people every day. So I can’t say specifically what I will do. I will just have to be conscious of my actions and aware of what is going on around me when im out and find a good deed to be done! Because it is contagious!
Happy new year Rosie! Xoxo
Happy New Year Liz & yes, you have the right idea. It’s about little things. Getting your hubby’s favorite meal or bringing in your neighbor’s trash cans. Happy #DeedADay!
