I’ve long stopped creating New Year’s Resolutions because, well, they always seem to be broken.
Instead, we, as a family, try to make some positive changes at the beginning of each year.
We use the time to get refocused.
We use the time to check in with each other.
We use the time to start some healthier routines.
Not always easy–this I know.
This year, we’re all starting the 100 Good Deeds plan.
As a family.
And it’s a pretty cool way of kicking off the New Year.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- New Year’s Family Plan–100 Good Deeds:
We’re not alone in our 100 Good Deeds Plan; in fact, we’re part of a huger than huge campaign geared toward making some positive change.
The premise is that the wearer of the bracelet does good deeds–just put more good into the world.
The Rules of the Game?
A ‘good deed’ means you’ve gone out of our way to help someone, and it only counts if the deed remains anonymous.
Each time you do a good deed, you move the rubber ring one bead closer toward the 1GD button.
The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet was created by Mary Fisher – artist, author, advocate – who spent a decade partnering with at-risk women in Africa and around the world, designing jewelry made by the women to earn a dignified livelihood.
Fisher, a leader in global social change, launched The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet, a handcrafted collection that symbolizes a commitment to perform good deeds and bring about positive change in the world.
Fisher says,“The motivation behind The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet collection is to inspire simple acts of kindness around the world.
Each bracelet is a reminder to spread positive change through action and fulfill our mission to Do Good, One Deed, One Bead, One Act of Kindness at a Time.”
I LOVE this.
