100gooddeeds.org DEED #1

A few weeks ago, I met an incredible woman.  Her name is Mary Fisher.  She was on a short vacation and I was her Cabana Host for the day.  I didn't poke and prod as much as I wanted to, but the small conversation we did have was very heartwarming and genuine.  She told me she made jewelry and showed me her bead bracelet she was wearing.

She told me that she taught women in Africa how to make these bracelets.  And the purchase of these bracelets employ these women (who wouldn't otherwise have a source of income) and pays for the cost of the supplies.  WHOA, the most simple idea made the biggest impact on these woman's lives- how amazing!! 

 The bracelet actually has a purpose as well!!  It's called 100 Good Deeds.  For every anonymous deed you move the rubber ring over to the next bead.  There are 100 beads for every deed and essentially acts as a counter.  Wearing the bracelet is a constant reminder of doing good- and yet another simple idea has made the biggest impact on my life and the way I go about doing things.  

When you get your bracelet, it tells you who made it...

And that is my very first deed!  Sharing my story has already resulted in 5 people purchasing bracelets and joining me in this incredible Good Deed Movement.  Lets light up someone's life, help fight a cause or do a selfless act and strive to be a better YOU!  Stay humble and do the right thing.  xoxo
