Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Worked four years to bring GLBT awareness and training to the staff of my local community health center.
Why are you participating?: 

Bring awareness to a wider community that no one, including those of us who live with disabilities, should be judged or limited by other people's assumptions or prejudices.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I helped my granddaughters make sweet treats for their lemonade stand with the profits going to their local children's hospital.
Why are you participating?:

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: 
Since I have retired, I am starting to volunteer at various places in order to do things that I have not had time to do while pursuing my career. One place I volunteer is at a clothing ministry where clothing and other various household goods are given to the needy. More good deeds to follow now that I have the time to spend.
Why are you participating?: 

As a volunteer at the Theater, one night the photographer was taking pictures and was asked if I would like to be part of this event - so I said yes and here I am.

Louise

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
A gentleman whose prime language was Arabic stopped us for directions to NCC where his 17 yo son was attending school. There were no schools in our area with those initials. All he had were a few papers with Head Start tel numbers I called them and was given the Parent Information Center tel number. The center gave me the phone and address of NCC New Citizens Center on Main street. We were quite a distance from there, so we drove him to the center. It was frustrating at first because we were afraid we wouldn't be able to help him, But it worked out perfect We learned something and we met a very nice man
Why are you participating?: 

I think it is great idea the photos of other people brought a smile to my face it's a small thing but a great project
