Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I work hard every day to just listen to people. Sometimes people just need someone to listen.
Why are you participating?: 

I wanted to participate because society tries to define us and it’s so easy to fall victim to it. It’s time to stand up for ourselves and stop listening to the negative things people have to say about us.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
As street artists, sometimes the best gift we have to give is listening, since we do not speak. Sometimes, we appear hard-lined because we cannot allow you to touch us and invade our space (we are people, too... please remember that), but when someone approaches us and clearly needs to be heard, we will listen. One such woman approached me one evening in Providence, extended her hand, and I took it. We consented to hug each other, and she let me know how much she appreciated our exchange. There were tears in her eyes. I do not know what she was going through, but I hope she walked away feeling better. Mental health awareness is very important to Silent Soapbox, as are causes pertaining to children in the foster care and adoption systems. Please contact us for volunteer performance opportunities at these types of events.
Why are you participating?: 

Mental Health awareness; child poverty awareness.

I don't volunteer, or participate in any groups, but I always try to spread kindness, and pay it forward. Being kind, and good to others is what I love for.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe that you don't know what other people are going through so why not be kind to everyone? You could save a life, or make someone's day a little brighter.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I recently raised over $400 for the UMass Cancer Research facility. And it was simple, just ask. This is something I think we should all be a little more open to, asking and receiving as well as hearing and giving. Finding needs and filling them, whether it be a favor for a friend or defending the rights of strangers.
Why are you participating?: 

I think its important to realize that while we categorize ourselves every day: by which bathroom we use, by which sports team we cheer for, by what we order at a restaurant, it's not those things that define us but rather the way they fit together in their own unique jig saw puzzle to make e
