Suva
Fiji
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteer as the Secretary for PPSEAWA Fiji. We do training workshops for unfortunate women in finance, backyard farming, recycling waste and other topics.
Why are you participating?: 

Physical appearance of a person may be different from getting to know that person. It is important not to assume the very first glance.

I work in early childhood education for minimal pay in downtown Worcester.

Casey

Worcester , MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I've helped the homeless, I've helped my family with a caregiver bag of food, I have rescued a kitten from a parking lot, I've let my homeless family stay at my place for a good night's rest or a shower or food/dinner, I've helped and take care of my 4 kids by myself that make them happy to my full potential that I can. I have given money or change to a homeless man. So much more I can keep going on.
Why are you participating?: 

Because I want and love the idea of this. I've been bullied and talked down to and I think this is the best thing I've seen so far and it makes me double think myself that I'm better than wut I've been told.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I make art for people! In a time of sadness, joy, or just so they know someone is thinking of them, I love to make person specific pieces and send them to people. It always puts a smile on their face!
Why are you participating?: 

Labels have affected me my entire life. I was never a 'cool kid' and people thought I was strange and unusual. Then I had my son, Colin, when I was in high school and was further stereotyped and judged.

Sarah

Auburn, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I work for a vocational rehabilitation program for adults with severe and persistent mental illness. We assist individuals reach their vocational goals of going back to work and school. I have been with this program for two and a half years and have learned the meaning of hope. I have witnessed first-hand individuals go from a place of fear to a place of personal empowerment. Mental Illness is one of the most stigmatized conditions a person can be diagnosed with and everyday they fight not only their symptoms, but also society. I work side by side with some of the most intelligent, capable, kind, and welcoming individuals in the Southbridge community and they are all diagnosed with diseases that are otherwise deemed as negative. My professional goal is to combat the stigma associated with Mental Illness and promote a more inclusive society: the way the world should be.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I truly believe in the mission of the No Evil Project. We all have labels but those labels don't make us who we are. What makes us who we are is how we treat each other.
