Good Deeds Day is an annual celebration of giving, where people, communities, organizations and businesses pledge to do a good deed for the benefit of others.

• Do a good deed on the spot with volunteer organizations at the Good Deeds Fair, including Habitat for Humanity – New York City, Jumpstart, generationOn, Girl Scouts of Greater New York, The HALO Foundation, CITYarts, and participate in fun Good Deeds activities, like painting a mural, constructing paper houses and joining in special reading sessions.

Good Deeds Day was initiated in 2007 by global business leader and philanthropist Shari Arison with 7,000 participants in Israel and has grown since to more than 250,000 “Good Deed Doers” in more than 50 countries. This year, some 400,000 are expected to take part all over the world.

Every single person can do something good, be it large or small, for the benefit of others. Whether it’s as simple as a smile, to joining a community project, every good deed you do makes a difference in the world.

So be a part of a record-breaking day of Good Deeds in New York City!
