In March 2015, nearly a million participants in 60 countries worldwide gave more than 3 million volunteer hours, making last year’s Good Deeds Day the largest and most far-reaching global day of good deeds since the movement began in 2007. On April 10th, 2016, the 10th Anniversary of Good Deeds Day, join the millions of people pumping up the volume of good in the world, making this the biggest turnout yet.
Good Deeds Day is a global movement of good, which puts into practice the simple idea that every person can do a good deed for the benefit of others and the planet, each according to their heart’s desire. “It is a day that gives everyone the opportunity to connect, help one another, and do good. Taking part is easy, it inspires people to do good for those around them – even for people they don’t know– all year-round, and to achieve a better and kinder world together,” says David Arison, son of Good Deeds Day founder Shari Arison.
This day is intended to be one day to promote good deeds. But it would be great if people continue to roll out good deeds in their day-to-day life. And it is now easier than ever to participate in Good Deeds Day and spread the message. By using social media and positing positive content with the hashtag #GoodDeedsDay more people will be able to find out about it and continue the trend.
It can be anything that would have a positive impact on someone else. It could be cleaning up beaches, parks, volunteering in an elderly home, mowing the lawn for a neighbor, a good deed is anything that will make someone feel better. Doing something nice for someone will make that person feel great, but also give you a smile on your face.
