I'm an advocate for the LGBT+ community as well as an advocate for mental health awareness.

I have always been defined by my labels in a negative way but hope that this will turn around and become something positive.

I have donated money and bought groceries on multiple occasions for persons in need of food
Why are you participating?: 

I believe in random acts of kindness and would like to see more people take an interest in doing so, to spread the idea that we can make the world a better place one person at a time

Anthony

Putnam, CT

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a first generation Filipino-American. As a person with mental illness, I am a reflection of the conditions of the world and I feel for its suffering. My mind is beautiful. I am a human rights activist and editorial illustrator who creates work that is socially, culturally and politically relevant. I am a council member in our town's interfaith council, a council member on our towns arts council, and a member of Amnesty International. I have devoted my life as being a global citizen caring for the rights of others fighting the "isms" that oppress us. As a teacher, I help create a legacy of creative problem solvers, ethical thinkers, and global citizens. As an entrepreneur and designer, I help emerging businesses and small business owners create a path to their dreams.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I feel the project is relevant and needed in the divisive culture. Everyone's story needs to be told.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteered to be a secret sister during my husbands deployment. Along with little gifts I like to send a card with a handwritten encouragement note and an inspirational quote.
Why are you participating?: 

I have been "labeled" more times than I can possibly count. From family to people on the street-they see me as a degenerate due to my tattoos. They call me "lazy" because I work from home pursing my dreams of writing a novel. I am more than what they name me.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have worked in several non profit animal shelters rescued several hundred animals. I make people smile as often as possible if friend or stranger.
Why are you participating?: 

To show that looks don't mean a thing, I may look like a big bad biker but I'm actual very kind and caring person who thinks of others before himself.

Brittany

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I worked for 3 years at a nonprofit organization that helps families, children and individuals with mental health needs. I am also an activist for social rights, eradicating stigma, and promoting change.
Why are you participating?: 

Because while labels can be useful for categorizing, they are also damaging and come with sets of prejudices that need to be challenged.. and because the pictures of me aren't the greatest, I want to try accepting them as they are anyway.

Tony

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I write poems that, I hope, illuminate the beauty and truth I find in this crazy, maddening world. With any luck and a little grace, they (I hope) help others to do the same...and while it's a lot to hope for, I hope that it contributes in some small way to lessening Evil.
Why are you participating?: 

I'm here because I think there's a lot of Evil out there and anything I can do to push back against it, I try and do. I think it's easy to get complacent or even to despair in the face of it -- this is one small pushback.
