Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Encouraging people to discover the musical, artistic gifts they've brought with them to this life.
Why are you participating?: 

The only way to fight evil is to reach for the humanity in others. What I've learned over the years: you do not have to believe the cruel, negative messages that people often hurl at you.

It keeps me busy and I like helping others.

Dee

Lowell, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have lobbied, and continue to lobby, for Transgender Rights.
Why are you participating?: 

Because I learned about the damage being unconsciously conditioned by stereotypes does when I moved to Washington, DC from the Connecticut suburbs. And I have a friend who is hurt by the racism still existent in this country. I think this is an amazing project!

Cynthia

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
“I am going to learn to make bread tomorrow. So you may imagine me with my sleeves rolled up, mixing flour, milk, [baking soda], etc., with a deal of grace. I advise you if you don't know how to make the staff of life to learn with dispatch.” (Emily Dickinson, American poet 1830-1886) I’ve baked hundreds of loaves of bread for fundraisers, folks who are grieving or celebrating, or to say thank you for someone’s help. Bon appétit!
Why are you participating?: 

Because I promised – and I always try to keep my promises (even if it takes a long time).
