Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
One recent good deed involves volunteering for a local neighborhood group. Currently I am in charge of social marketing and taking minutes for the Green Hill Neighborhood Association in Worcester, MA. We plan different activities to bring people together to make a better community.This month we celebrated Earth day by picking up trash in our neighborhood. It feels great to be part of the solution!
Why are you participating?: 

I'm participating because I believe that there is more good than evil, more love than hate, and negative labels certainly can have an effect on people. You can choose to fit in the box of the label or you can break out of it. Some labels are forced onto you - fight it! Education is the key.

I had the opportunity to go on a learning/service trip to Ghana in order to learn about the Triangle Trade in more depth and helped raised money to provide clean water to an entire village, also provide a water tank to the clinic's village.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I recently spent time with my ex's niece a couple weeks ago. It was her 10th birthday. We hung out for the day talking about school and philosophies of life and we eventually made our way to Claire's to pick out a gift. I encouraged her to follow her dreams as a fashion designer as we commented on the latest trends. Friends would ask why I make the effort to spend time with her considering me and my ex's history, but I tell them, "wouldn't you have wanted someone to take your dreams seriously when you were ten? to have someone believe in you?" I would hate for her talents to go to waste if no one else had been telling her that her dreams are possible. We need to stop telling children that "you can't do that" or that their dreams are "out of reach".
Why are you participating?: 

To encourage others to do good even if nothing is returned in doing so. People need to understand that it's OK to be happy, and to not be afraid of helping others reach success. In doing so you will be rewarded in one way or another.
