While watching the Today Show this morning, I found out about an organization that I wish I had known of before. 100 Good Deeds was founded by Mary Fisher- an activist, advocate, and artist- after she spent time in Africa designing jewelry made by local women to help them have a decent livelihood. Fisher then met Thomas Morgan, a filmmaker, who together with his family, created the ‘Good Deeds Game.’ The Morgan Family defined a good deed as: “…going out of your way to help someone, and it only counts if the deed remains anonymous.”
Morgan shared the game with Fisher, and Fisher created the 100 Good Deeds bracelet. The bracelet is both a reminder to do good deeds every day and a way to empower women since each purchase employs one vulnerable woman.
The bracelets help to remind you to engage in daily acts of kindness. An elastic band moves bead after bead- closer to the ‘100 Good Deeds’ pendent- because all you need is “one deed, one bead, one act of kindness at a time.”
