I love the idea of New Year’s Resolutions. I love making them, I love the promise of a new calendar year and planners with blank pages ready to be filled. But honestly…I also break my resolutions, big time. This means that I have not lost the weight, ran the race, finished the project. But I do love the idea of resolutions and I thinking about what can be. This year instead of so many “Rachee” centric resolutions I want to get out of my own head and share the things I have been blessed with with others. I am participating in the #DeedADay movement and wanted to share with you how you can do your own good deeds.
Since I am guilty of starting efforts really strong and then letting them fade away, I love that I was chosen to receive a 100 Good Deeds bracelet. The bracelets made with 100 glass beads, and strung by vulnerable women in Uganda, Indonesia, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda and my beloved Haiti. Every time you do an anonymous act of kindness, you slide the rubber ring to the next bead, until it reaches the closure button. What to do when you reach the end? Start all over again, or get another bracelet in a different color and continue to remind yourself and others to do good.
The 100 Good Deeds bracelets are designed by author, artist and AIDS advocate, Mary Fisher. Proceeds from each $30 bracelet are reinvested in educational and economic opportunities for the women who craft them.
If you would like to join the movement, you can purchase a 100 Good Deeds bracelet for you or for friends and family (or an e-gift card) as a reminder to do one act of kindness every day.
If you want to spread awareness, you can share pictures of your bracelet on social media tagging them with #DeedADay.
