#DoGoodInDeed Acts

Paying it forward has become a well known saying. It’s an interesting phenomenon to see in action as well, and can be seen very easily! Our #DoGoodInDeed Acts list includes ways to do something random and unexpected and see what happens. Your random act can start an entire string of random acts that could potentially grow with each turn. These #DoGoodInDeed Acts can be sprinkled throughout your day, and can even have a positive impact on you and your state of mind as well. The acts list continues to grow as we hear about fun ways to #DoGoodInDeed so be sure to stop back here and get an act or two for you! If you have a #DoGoodInDeed Act to share, please submit it below for consideration.

You have my warmest welcome and sincere gratitude for joining our global movement.
