Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am raising my children in the kind of household that I wish I had grown up in: safe, loving, stable and nurturing.
Why are you participating?: 

Labels allow people to prejudge others. I wear my 'labels' externally to push back against other people's assumptions, and want to encourage others to do the same. Being accepted for who you really are, and not how others want you to be, is empowering and gratifying.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
My friend said that he felt more comfortable in women's underwear, but his mom found his and threw them away... so I gave him some of mine.
Why are you participating?: 

Everyone should feel worthy and equal, never less than... I know how hard that feeling can be.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I gave my lunch to a homeless man. He needed it more than me. I think its important to give selflessly. I find anonymous acts of kindness are the ultimate gesture where nothing is expected in return.
Why are you participating?: 

I have realized how interconnected we all are as a human race. I have been focusing more on our commonalities than our differences, however it is the variety of character that is the beauty and fabric that unifies us all. It is our uniqueness that we have to share and teach each other.

Hannah

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
When I run, I try to say hello/good morning to every person I pass, in the hopes that it brings the world a little closer.
Why are you participating?: 

Allowing individuals to label themselves, and share the labels through a picture is such a powerful action. It is essential to break down the barriers of what our society's categorization, and inspire people to view each other as individuals under the same sky.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Too many times when I'm driving around, there's someone on a corner in need, holding up a a sign about being homeless, or in dire circumstances. Rarely do I have cash or change, but usually have snacks. I offer something to eat or drink that hasn't been opened. On the few ocassions that I haven't had anything suitable to offer, I have at least opened the window to say hello instead of ignoring them. And I make sure my kids understand the importance of acknowledging those that might need our help.
Why are you participating?: 

I've brushed off the impact of what the labels I've been given or incurred, mostly. But it can still sting when flung at someone as a dig. And it's so important to recognize your good and your deeds.
