The 100 Good Deeds Project

#1GD
You probably have heard of "random acts of kindness" or the concept of being a good Samaritan, but now there is a friendship bracelet that you can wear daily to keep count of 100 Good Deeds. [Note: I was sent this bracelet for review from the Everywhere Agency.]

What counts as a good deed?  A 'good deed' means we've gone out of our way to help someone and it only counts if the deed remains anonymous.

100 Good Deeds is an initiative that has been supported, promoted and propelled by Mary Fisher. Mary is a renowned artist, author and advocate who spent a decade partnering with vulnerable women in Africa, designing jewelry made by women to earn a dignified livelihood.  The 100 Good Deeds movement gives women in Haiti, Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia and Johannesburg the opportunity to create not only beautiful jewelry but also a sustainable income for themselves. In 2012, Mary Fisher had just released her memoir, Messenger, a story of discovering joy in service, when she met Thomas Morgan, a filmmaker and father who created the 100 Good Deeds game with his family. He shared the game with Mary who responded by creating the 100 Good Deeds bracelet. The bracelet is both a call to do good deeds and a strategy to empower women.

Hey readers, you too can become a part of the 100 Good Deeds movement! Simply send a tweet sharing a good deed someone else has done for you, mention @The1GDbracelet, use hashtag #1GD and include the link to this blog post. 15 lucky readers will be chosen at random and will be contacted to receive their very own 100 Good Deeds bracelet!
