Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I work at an adventure/zip-line park. Over the course of the season I interact with thousands of people, from a variety of different races/cultures/countries/religions/ages/genders/sexual orientations. At the park I have the opportunity to treat everyone equally and with respect, as well as create a safe space for the variety of people have fun with their friends and families. It isn't groundbreaking good deed work or anything, but it is a gratifying feeling to know that you helped create a positive experience for people.
Why are you participating?: 

It is fun!

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I like to compliment strangers on something that stands out to me about their individual presentation (article of clothing, hairstyle, makeup) for the soul purpose of making them feel good about themselves.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I think it is important to spread the word of the good.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I pass information and resources to all homeless people I come into contact with, I am willing to physically take new homeless on a tour of the city for resources and services. I redistribute goods to people who are unable to get clothing due to disability or mental confusion.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe all people would rather be better if they are given the chance.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a very visible person. By size, personality, inclination and training. I've spent my whole life learning how to entertain people; to make them laugh, cry, feel and think. I enjoy moving people, making them pay attention and listen. Ever since I came out as trans (and queer, and poly and a number of other things too), I have tried to use my voice and my visibility not merely to entertain (though that's certainly worthwhile too), but to change our communities and our society, to change the world. To amplify the voices of marginalized people who lack the ability to make others listen. To be visible so that others who are not so comfortable in the harsh glare of the spotlight don't have to be. So this world may be a better, happier, safer place for those who might not have a voice like mine. To put this philosophy into practice, I work with a number of advocacy and outreach organizations. I also speak, perform and write about gender and sexuality. And sometimes I even get to make people just laugh too!
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I believe that being visible; seeing, hearing, and speaking out about the evil I see in the world; is the right thing to do. This project and these photos are a literal interpretation of that philosophy.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
It's my job to tell people they are loved and forgiven.
Why are you participating?: 

People are beautifully complicated beyond what a few labels can capture. I choose curiosity over fear when I meet difference.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
To this day, I've been donating to a organization called "The Leelah Project". This foundation helps transgender individuals receive items that would help in their transition to their desired gender. I've been trying to help out as much as possible, as I am a LGBT individual myself. :)
Why are you participating?: 

I want to show that labels aren't what define you. You should just be yourself. As long as you're happy, nothing else matters.
