Good Deeds Day

Good Deeds Day

03/15/2016

Good Deeds Day is a wonderful boundary-breaking initiative. Since 2007, it has become a social, communal, and environmental celebration. Each year, more people join the project and choose to do something for a cause that speaks to their heart and to take part in a variety of positive activities. Its purpose is to enable a new point of view on life difficulties and how to turn disadvantages into advantages, and to create a space that joins people with and without disabilities.
