Rebecca

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to focus on the positive qualities I see in other people/situations, even when I feel stressed. Sometimes it is easy to focus on conflict we have with others, but I work to try and see the best in others- and to remind myself of that even in difficult situations.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
A lot of people come to me for advice and help with different things, and I try and guide and assist them as best I can. My family sometimes jokes that I should start charging, but if it's something I can easily do, I feel why not? Shouldn't we all?
Why are you participating?: 

I think it's a pretty cool project and dispelling the myths surrounding labels is probably one of the most important things we can do as a society.

Ellen

United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I took the time to talk to someone who really needed it.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because the world now sees so much evil, hears so much evil and speaks so much evil.
I want to be part of the change.

Jasper

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
This year I spent my Christmas day as a face-painter as part of an event for underprivileged kids and their families.
Why are you participating?: 

I think it's great for people to feel encouraged to engage in acts that will benefit us despite our labels and across identities.

Ellen

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I make strangers smile, spread joy and cultivate creativity in others. Building bridges, crossing borders, tearing down walls.
Why are you participating?: 

There is more that unites us than separates us. Now...more than ever.

Alexis

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to spread P.L.U.R. to everyone I meet.
Why are you participating?: 

I'm participating because people shouldn't be defined by labels or looks. Just like attempting to read a book by it's cover. You really don't know what's on the inside until you open it up. People are so much more than the stereotype.

Christine

West Boylston, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to be a goofball and send love and joy to everyone I see.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating due to a friend's involvement. I love the message this campaign is promoting. I have always been a big fan of the Golden Rule. Spread love not hate and try to make the world a better place.

Lorelei

Barnstable, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a very visible person. By size, personality, inclination and training. I've spent my whole life learning how to entertain people; to make them laugh, cry, feel and think. I enjoy moving people, making them pay attention and listen. Ever since I came out as trans (and queer, and poly and a number of other things too), I have tried to use my voice and my visibility not merely to entertain (though that's certainly worthwhile too), but to change our communities and our society, to change the world. To amplify the voices of marginalized people who lack the ability to make others listen. To be visible so that others who are not so comfortable in the harsh glare of the spotlight don't have to be. So this world may be a better, happier, safer place for those who might not have a voice like mine. To put this philosophy into practice, I work with a number of advocacy and outreach organizations. I also speak, perform and write about gender and sexuality. And sometimes I even get to make people just laugh too!
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I believe that being visible; seeing, hearing, and speaking out about the evil I see in the world; is the right thing to do. This project and these photos are a literal interpretation of that philosophy.
