Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I'm part of the PTO at my daughter's school. I enjoy volunteering there... it gives me the opportunity to meet other parents and to be involved with the school and the community.
Why are you participating?: 

To show that no one is "perfect". We all come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, that no one looks the same and you should be happy being different. I want my daughter to know that you need to love who you are and be comfortable in your own skin.

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 have donated money and bought groceries on multiple occasions for persons in need of food
Why are you participating?: 

I believe in random acts of kindness and would like to see more people take an interest in doing so, to spread the idea that we can make the world a better place one person at a time

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I work hard every day to just listen to people. Sometimes people just need someone to listen.
Why are you participating?: 

I wanted to participate because society tries to define us and it’s so easy to fall victim to it. It’s time to stand up for ourselves and stop listening to the negative things people have to say about us.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I always try to find an attribute in strangers that I can compliment. Hair, jewelry, outfit, anything. It can really add a positive zing to a person’s day - And on a selfish level, the returning smile I usually receive adds a nice boost to my day as well.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating in this because I think the world needs as much positive as we can find. And how wonderful to look through and see how we see ourselves. What the world may see as our most important feature, may not be something that personally we consider that big a deal.

I went on a mission trip to Mexico to help build a church. It was a beautiful experience that I will never forget. ^_^
Why are you participating?: 

It really takes a toll on your self esteem when you feel judged about your weight. I am learning to love my body even if it doesn't meet society's standards.
