(Note to readers: I was provided a 100 Good Deeds Bracelet in lieu of payment for sharing this information. As always, my opinion remains my own.)
The idea of 100 good deeds—by one person—may sound a little daunting, but it’s entirely possible to achieve with minimal effort in many cases, if you’re willing to try.
It’s something I’m going to give a whirl as part of a campaign for the 100 Good Deeds Bracelet. The bracelet is promoted as both a fashion statement and a cause to encourage everyone to do a good deed.
I personally think it’s a great gift if you’re ever looking for a present and a wonderful New Year’s resolution. I know I always feel better when I do something kind for others, so in a way, this really is a gift that keeps on giving. Plus, this is a resolution I believe I’d be eager to keep. One #DeedaDay will add up to 100 in no time at all.
In the end, wearing the bracelet is a simple way to change the world—one bead at a time.
Each bracelet has 100 beads. Every time you perform a good deed, you move the bracelet’s rubber ring closer to the 100th bead. It’s a simple reminder to keep up the kindness.
The designer of the bracelets is Mary Fisher, an artist, author and HIV/AIDS activist who has dedicated her life to working with women in developing countries. The women of Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda and Haiti help make the bracelets and also benefit from them.
My suggestion is to buy yourself a bracelet, and pick up a few for others you’d like to gift. You’ll be able to move the bead over immediately after that first deed is accomplished.
