Sara

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I "tithe" - give 10% of my income to charities that feed poor people, take care of abandoned animals, and help disabled people with needed equipment.
Why are you participating?: 

All human beings are G-d's image; the most important teaching of my religion.

Jess

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteered with an organization called Horizons for Homeless Children and am co-director of a club at Clark University called Youth Outreach Worcester -- we visit local high schools and facilitate classes on identity development and social justice.
Why are you participating?: 

It's taken me a long time to learn that how others see you does not define you.

Elyana

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
During the heatwave this summer, I made sure to have water, Powerade and protein bars for the folks in our community experiencing homelessness.
Why are you participating?: 

Being Jewish and queer means a lot of people decide who I am before meeting or talking to me and I'm more than the amazing identities I was born with!

Dani

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I was the crazy cat lady in the neighborhood. Had spare kittens? I took them and vaccinated them and spayed them. Had annoying strays? I took them in and socialized them until they were ready for adoption. Those that were feral and weren't able to be adopted, I fed and watered and took to the vet as needed.
Why are you participating?: 

I thought this was a really neat way to say behind the labels we are all just people doing the best we can for ourselves and our fellow beings on this Earth. I'm a radical, and part of the radicalness I aim to achieve are radical acts of kindness that go beyond what a person expects.

Jacob

Clark, NJ
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I've been a mitzvah clown and visited hospitals and old age homes to bring people going through difficult times some form of joy and escape.
Why are you participating?: 

I think it's important that people feel like they are allowed to be themselves.

Jul

Stow, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Being someone that was bullied throughout my whole life, I make sure if I see someone who is alone or visibly disturbed I always step in.
Why are you participating?: 

Self expression is so important. Expressing yourself through creativity or community helped me so much. I pray people will find themselves to become their authentic self.
