Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have taught many children to find the golden flame of their heart through stringed instruments and music.
Why are you participating?: 

I am the living 'anti-stereotype' and there are many more like me in this world. I hope others will see me and know that they do not have to live down to negative stereotypes about Blacks, women, or overweight people.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I foster dogs that are in high kill shelters in the Mid-West, and have no other place to go
Why are you participating?: 

To show people that you can NEVER judge a book by its cover. I want to show my two daughters that they can be proud of who they are, no matter what others say or how they may be judged. Hopefully, when they are older, they won't be discouraged by being different and independent.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I saved my brother from drowning when we were kids.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating in the project because labels have negatively affected me and I would like people to know me for who I am as a person rather than just a few groups (ethnic, social, economic) that I am a part of.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Of all the actions, seeing, hearing and speaking, the one that I control is what I say. The others I refuse to participate with. I have always loved locs, the hairstyle, and the positive energy of those that wear them. I currently do volunteer work with Art in the Park, Worcester, support Democracy, activate for a community where the institutions and the cultural life reflect that of its inhabitants.
Why are you participating?: 

I like the fact that the no evil project is a simple positive project and an easy way to activate.
