Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to make it a point to talk about depression / anxiety and any type of mental health to help break the taboo and bring awareness to it. I also like to try to pay a compliment in return, when I get complimented in drag.
Why are you participating?: 

I think it's very important to speak out about helping others and raising awareness about mental health, emotional / mental abuse, as well as substance abuse.

Volunteering such as giving back to theater whether set painting, stage crewing, and things behind the scenes and helping with events across the Boston area.
Why are you participating?: 

Everyone has something to offer. Support people and their passions.

Karina

Minneapolis, MN
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I feel compassionate towards other people I don't even know and it helps me realize that we all carry our own cross, we all battle with our own demons and we are essentially all flawed human beings. There isn't a specific thing, but the build up of little things that I believe makes me a compassionate person. I learn to show empathy and keep in mind that sometimes, people do things out of anger, people mess up. There is already enough suffering in the world and showing someone just a little bit of love and compassion can go a long way.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
As a living statue performer, the foundation of my art is the hope that I might bring a little light and joy into someone's day. I connect with people by simply being present, making eye contact, listening, and using the element of the unexpected to create an opportunity for them to let their guard down.
Why are you participating?: 

My friend and colleague participated (photographed as Lily, our primary living statue character) at stART on the Street, and I've been following the project ever since.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
When I go my tax return this year, I went online to GoFundMe.com and donated to a couple of causes because I was now able to.
Why are you participating?: 

I really admire the idea behind this project, and hope it opens up a conversation on difference.
