Do the deed


This year my company decided to something a little different for our charitable effort.

Rather than split into three different teams to help three different charities or organizations, as has been our December tradition, we combined our efforts as a group to create Do the Deed – a movement inspired by simple, single acts of kindness.

We partnered with several community organizations to help make the idea come to life. One of our partners, Intake Studio, helped produce a video that explains the spirit behind Do the Deed.

(If the video takes a long time to load, click here.)

Head over to the check out the website. I played a part in realizing some of the features of the site – increasing both my WordPress-hacking (read: copying and pasting from others) skills and respect for actual, real web developers in the process.

While you’re there, check out all the deeds that have been submitted, add a deed idea of your own or submit a story about a deed done for you or a deed you’ve done.

Then, head back here and let me know what you think.

    Great job to you and all that worked on putting this together. I like the idea about calling your Mother. That one is dear to my heart! Mom to the best son in the world!
