Do Good, Be Good: 100 Good Deeds Bracelet Giveaway

100 Good Deeds Bracelet

When I received an email request for bloggers to help spread the word about a wonderful nonprofit called 100 Good Deeds, I knew I wanted to sign up.

100 Good Deeds bracelets are simple, beautiful fashion statements that encourages good deeds while empowering women around the world.  I love that each bracelet features the name of the woman who carefully handcrafted it, as well as her home country. They come in a variety of colors (my favorites are peacock blue, lagoon blue and spicy) and are perfect for layering. Accessorizing for a good cause? I’m in!

The bracelets are made by vulnerable women, many HIV+, who’ve been trained for this work in Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda & Haiti, Bali, India and New York. Wrap the bracelet around your arm three times, secure it with the band and each time you do a good deed, move the ring one bead closer to the button.

When I traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, in 2013 with my friend Rene Cook, founder of Every Girl Counts, I met many women and girls facing overwhelming odds as they tried to lead normal lives while living in one of the world’s largest slums. These women were pioneering, determined and inspirational. They raised their families, they ran businesses such as hair salons and seamstress shops, and they tried to stay in school. I realized then that no matter what obstacles you face in life, both doing good deeds and being a recipient of good deeds, no matter how large or small, can make a world of difference.

Mary Fisher is the artist, author and advocate behind 100 Good Deeds. She spent a decade partnering with vulnerable women in Africa, designing jewelry made by the women to earn a dignified livelihood. She had just released her memoir, Messenger, a story of discovering joy in service, when she met Thomas Morgan, filmmaker and father, who created the 100 Good Deeds game with his family. The rules of the game: A “good deed” means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone and only counts if the deed remains anonymous. Thomas shared the game with Mary who responded by creating the 100 Good Deeds bracelet. The bracelet is both a call to do good deeds and a strategy to empower women. Thomas’ game and Mary’s bracelet have together launched a worldwide 100 Good Deeds movement.

    I’m pregnant and one of my coworkers helped me to get documents that I had stored a while back off of the bottom row on the shelf.

    I have been the recipient of so many “good deeds,” most recently a dear friend who texted me to ask if we would like dinner brought to our house after we returned home from my husband’s surgery. I was also blessed with the opportunity to help collect food for our local homeless shelter recently. The opportunities for good deeds are everywhere when we open our eyes to them. 🙂

    I was walking towards Target store today as I saw a pregnant woman with child in her arms and another in tow. The child who was walking was barefoot and crying. It was 106 degrees and I new the pavement was about 150. I insisted she allow me to carry the child (who immediately quieted when I picked her up). When we got into Target I bought both children sandals. The mother barely spoke English but she thanked me more times than I could count.

    I follow BMB on FB and IG. FOR SOME REASON 100GD does not allow me to follow. ??

    A lady in line in front of me left $20 to pay for the items the people behind her bought. We were at the Dollar Tree so that paid for my order plus some of the stuff the man behind me bought. Awesome surprise!

    I donate carefully chosen books to at-risk youth. Thus far, we’ve been able to expand their library at the mission center by over 300 books. It would be impossible without the generosity & kindness of my community & the wonderful authors who have donated their work.

    I recently purchased drinks for someone in back of me at Starbucks. I also purchased some groceries back in April to help a family get through the rest of the week along with giving them $20 cash. I then drove it all out to Watertown to the family. She then paid it forward too, doing something similar for another family!

    We recently did the good deed of tipping our pizza delivery driver an $18 tip, because she was an older lady working late nights & we figured it would be a nice gesture. She was thrilled!!
