Michelle

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a therapist and I work with marginalized individuals of all genders and sexualities. I volunteer for a trauma network who treat individuals, for free, after major traumas, like the Boston Marathon Bombing, shootings, and fires. I like to smile at people when shopping and make eye contact. It tends to make them smile.
Why are you participating?: 

People have lots of stereotypical beliefs of therapists. We are this blank slate that people come to when vulnerable and sometimes powerless.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I do talks on the making of classic films for senior residences and groups.
Why are you participating?: 

Well, one label that affects me is "science fiction" (which is similar to but not the same as your listing of "science fantasy"). I am a fan, a panelist at conventions, and the author of several published books and short stories.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I foster baby kittens who have lost their mothers.
Why are you participating?: 

We often forget how incredible and multifaceted people can be when we only interact with them in one dimension. I'm honored to be a part of something that reminds people.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I always carry protein bars to hand out to anyone in need. Last week, I gave one to a homeless man who yelled to his friend across the street and tossed him half the bar. Made me smile :)
Why are you participating?: 

The best way to decrease intolerance is to educate and create awareness. I think this is a great cause, and an excellent way to help people see beyond one's immediate appearance.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
As a Jew, I take the concept of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) seriously. My Hebrew name is Nechama, which means comfort. I like making teddies for children in homeless shelters and blankies for kids in the hospital. Or any other way I might discover to help.
Why are you participating?: 

I'm participating because "you can't judge a book by it's cover". You can't size up a person on sight. You have to spend time with them, find out where their soul or spirit or inner light is.
