Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to be friendly to all. I complement people when I notice something special about them whether in a store or on the street. I do make people smile frequently. I try to let people vent to me knowing I will not repeat what I see or hear or what they say. I volunteer my time in several ways.

Linda

Marlborough, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I attended an all day seminar about white privilege. It helped me to see that I am able to go into stores without being followed around and will be served within a reasonable amount of time. I expect to get what I need when I interview for a job. I expect that I will be listened to and not judged as representing anyone else but myself. I expect that should I apply for a car loan or to lease an apartment that I will be granted the loan or the lease.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe that too often people are labeled based on where they were born their ethnicity or their sexual preference as well as their education and skin shades. I believe that labeling is wrong. I know that I do not want to be judged by my looks, my age, my disabilities my social standing.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Observe. Discern. Discuss.
Why are you participating?: 

Labels limit the range of our conception to 'that which has existed', and therefore can restrict evolution of or within a system. Labels ascribed to individuals promote objectification, which can lead to possession, which can to slavery.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I log on to the following site each morning and take a few minutes to read the stories of hope and inspiration and "click to give" to Hunger, Breast Cancer, Animal Rescue, Veterans, Autism, Child Health, Literacy, and Rainforest. As a result of my click and those of others, sponsors provide support for worthwhile causes for people and animals that need help. Iíve sent this link to others and invite you to "click to give" and start the day helping others.
Why are you participating?: 

The project sounds fun and I want to be part of it.
