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!

Brianna

Milton, MA

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I was responsible for implementing a program in my high school against bullying in secondary schools.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I believe it is extremely important for leaders around the U.S. to be involved.

Stephanie

West Brookfield, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I spent a week in Haiti in the summer of 2011 to assist with rebuilding efforts in the wake of the 2010 earthquake.
Why are you participating?: 

I'm participating because we all are unique and have been given gifts and qualties from God, all of which can be used for good. Our uniqueness and differences are to be celebrated and this project certainly helps do that!

Bree

Auburn, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a gay/trans-rights activist, spent high school forming a small private school's first Gay/Straight Alliance, & college canvassing neighborhoods for the HRC. I work hard to make sure my kids don't use/see labels --- which is incredibly difficult in the small, nearly-all-white Protestant town that I live in. I also spend a few evenings a week working for the United Way & their various fundraisers and volunteering at the various organizations that the United Way supports. I am an actress in a local theater company, and love the joy it brings to our audience members.
Why are you participating?: 

I've worked against labels my whole life. I hate that when people see me they assume things. I think it's wonderful that this project is working to make people see beyond what is in front of their face and into the person that lies beneath. Sometimes the labels are right.

Bill

Worcester, MA
United States
Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I taught my kids to ask, "What can I do to help?" I try to live up to that myself; sometimes it involves jumper cables on a dark and stormy night, and sometimes it doesn't need to be any more than a well-placed grin.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe we were put here to listen to each other's stories, and to help each other along in the parade of life. Applications for free hugs are always given serious attention.
