I give, I mean I have my church that I tithe at (most of the time) and charitable organizations that I give to (mostly because of social pressure), but there are times when causes cross my desk that I simply cannot ignore or say no to, that would be the 100 Good Deeds Project.

I know, its a catchy name. It captured my interest as soon as I heard it and then I read about it.
What is One Hundred Good Deeds?
100Good Deeds was originally a game started by a filmmaker and father named Thomas Morgan. Mr. Morgan hooked up with Mary Fisher, who created the 100 Good Deeds bracelet when she learned about the game. A movement and a way to empower vulnerable women was born.
What classifies as A Good Deed?
According to the game, a good deed can only be a good deed if the person who is doing it remains anonymous and goes out of their way to make life better for another individual.
Why bracelets and why are they so special?
Besides the fact that the bracelets are fly and nobody has one like this (trust me I have been looking and we need to change that), the sugar on top is that the bracelets are made by vulnerable women from:
- Johannesburg, South Africa
My bracelet was made by Thuli Mphasa from South Africa.
This blog post and this purchase will help her to help herself and her family. So I hope that you make yours, the bracelet is made of 100 unique glass beads with a rubber band that you move everytime that you do a good deed. The bracelets comes with one bead passed over already because your purchase is your first deed.
So what happens now that I have done One Good Deed?
The bracelet is to be worn around your wrist to remind you of the benevolence that we should provide for each other as fellow human beings. When you do One Good Deed, you move the rubber band over one of the beautiful glass beads. Signigying to yourself, that you have helped to make the world a better place.
I was so moved by the idea of if that I meediately wanted to share the mission with the world. Sometimes it just about doing a little something that will and can make a difference.
Please take some time to partner with this organization and follow them on social media and see the good deeds that people are doing.
