Ethan

Rockville, MD
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I participated in numerous community service construction and donation projects through the boy scouts of America.
Why are you participating?: 

People always take one look at me and assume that I was a popular kid in high school and that everything has gone great for me thus far, but that's not the case. I was shy, awkward, small, and skinny with a squeaky voice until just before I came to college.

Toyoko

Teaneck, NJ
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to help take care of the elderly and keep smiling at those who seem unhappy.
Why are you participating?: 

As part of the PPSEAWA Conference and to see the rest of the project.

Cory

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
There's a biblical story about our names being changed when we lose our earthly life, and it'll be printed on a white stone, for only us to see. (Revelations 2:17) In my hands I see my new name, clear as day - "Joy Maker". Whether I'm tossing rubber rats with kids, doing magic tricks in liquor stores, or randomly asking a stranger if a prayer is needed for them- it's all the same result: bringing a sparkle to someone's soul, while paying attention to their true value. Everyone's journey is so different. This one is mine. On the late bloomin' end, it's taking quite a while to figure out how to be a channel in bringing those talents together, then actually applying them. My recipe thus far? One part joy, one part connection, one part openness, with a drizzling of goofball on top.
Why are you participating?: 

I consider this project as a medium for people to reflect inside, to have courage to admit their own uniqueness, and to use those God-given qualities to lighten up a world that needs it.

Bob

Holden, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have used the Heimlich Maneuver several times over the years on strangers while dining in local restaurants.
Why are you participating?: 

If a single person is positively affected by this exhibit, it is well worth the effort!

Sheila

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I started a homeschool girl scout troop which allowed little girls from 5 to 10 get to know each other and do fun things together like collecting clothes for people in need and raising money to fight cancer.
Why are you participating?: 

Because it is a very thoughtful exercise to think of a good deed and acknowledge that we all do things to help others without thinking about it.
