I decided to start this story again. My name is Laura Louise Persichetti and this is the Good Deeds Project.
I started writing the blog for this website in April 2014 and at the time I didn’t know where to start, so I decided I just needed to start something. At the time I shared my own personal journey of this project but what I have come to learn is that it’s not just my own personal journey. This project is our story. The vision of this project to to create a documentary featuring good deeds and others who are doing good deeds. The goal is to capture 7 billion good deeds- one for every person on the planet. That is a massive vision and to think this is just my own personal story to tell would be silly. This is our journey.
Sometimes I find myself completely focused on going out and doing good deeds. Other times I find myself completely focused on creating the documentary and interviewing some remarkable people, with fantastic stories on doing good things in the world. I think this project is truly about bringing awareness to kindness and how offering a kind gesture to support another person can really make a massive difference. What I am finding, is between the good deeds, I am learning massive lessons along the way. And between my own lessons along the way, others who are participating have been learning their own lessons along the way. I think the project is about doing good deeds; but as I grow with the project, I am unveiling so much more than that. The ripples of one single good deed will never be known and perhaps the ripples of the Good Deeds Project itself will never be known either.
But what I do know is that this project is a journey to find the good in the world, to do good in the world and essentially feel good in this world. Feeling good feels good and I hope to share that with you too.
