The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet

March 1, 2014

1902079_216749588522696_640493351_nI’m going to be brutally honest here: when my mom texted me right before Christmas and asked me to visit the 100 Good Deeds site and tell me which bracelet I liked best, I was kinda like, “Oh great. My mom is getting me a bracelet for Christmas.” I wasn’t all that thrilled about it.

Then Christmas morning came, and I had forgotten all about it. I opened up this item from my stocking and my mom shared with me that this was what her company has been working on for the past year. As I opened the package and read the story behind it, I was intrigued. But when I looked down at the label inside the package that told me who made it, my heart warmed. Turns out, I’m helping Emily to provide a livelihood for her family, and in turn, Emily is helping me to pay it forward.

While I’ve always been one that believes in helping out our fellow man, the mission of this bracelet has taken a more profound effect on me than I ever could have imagined. I wear my bracelet daily, taking it off only to shower. Every time I look down, I am reminded that it’s the small things – opening a door for someone, picking up litter, paying someone’s bus fare – that make our world a better place and inspire others to do good in the world. I strongly encourage you to invest in one of these bracelets. That can be your first good deed.
