James

Fitchburg, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Learned sign language to communicate with my neighbor.
Why are you participating?: 

Supporting the idea that the world would be incomplete if everyone were alike - it takes all kinds of people to make the world go around.

Reign

Salem, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I always find time in the day to compliment other women, specifically women of color who are of African descent. I am a proud dark-skinned woman and I realize that my beauty has not been celebrated culturally or in the media. Often, and in many countries, dark skin is despised and rejected; women of my complexion are judged and socially labeled inferior or the subordinates of other women that are more Eurocentric and possess European features. I champion natural beauty and women who walk their path baring their chocolate skin, large curves, wide noses, kinky hair, natural curls, and big lips. It is important for us women to compliment one another and be "enough" for ourselves. We do not need permission to celebrate our beauty and the things that make us who we are. As a mom of a little woman of color, it is important to teach our daughters that our skin does not define us and it is our responsibility to love ourselves; we set the bar for others.
Why are you participating?: 

I am automatically labeled because of my skin complexion and I feel that the prejudgment involved in the hierarchy of skin complexion is largely misleading.

Matt

Taunton, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
People tell me my job is a good deed in itself but being an EMT is my passion. I enjoy helping others in their darkest hour.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe in what this project represents.

Joseph

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Infantry Veteran Driver that led his team and group of trucks with a mine-roller for months in Helmand Province, Afghanistan without hitting an IED.
Why are you participating?: 

I really like what the organization is about. I get labeled a lot from anything from being racist because I'm bald, or mean because of the way I look. I can totally understand how stigmas have a negative effect.

Karina

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Stated my own non-profit (Young Parent Hope) to support teen parents and their babies.
Why are you participating?: 

To show others not to judge people! You never know what someone is going through or who they are inside.
