What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

No bag please!

I've started requesting "no bag" whenever I get food to go from McDonalds. They also stuff it full of napkins that I don't use, and the bag itself is a waste of paper. Why not go easy on the environment?

ONE GOOD DEED: Get food without the bag, thus saving paper.

  3. Only just started reading your blog but just wanted to say that I think its really good what you have done by completing 365 good deeds.

    My blog is very similar. I have been trying to donate / do something good each month. Please feel free to look through mine for any future inspirations: www.idonated.co.uk

  4. Chadd Winterburg the Humanitarian:
    What is a humanitarian? A humanitarian is someone who has compassion for other humans, the planet and the country. To be a humanitarian, then you must want to look for ways to make a difference in other’s lives. This doesn’t just mean write a check. A humanitarian will try to help those who are suffering, hungry or even need something simple as a ride. A humanitarian isn’t a 9 to 5 job. It is someone who helps anytime, any day or any place.
    Chadd Winterburg is a humanitarian. He helps those in need, no matter what the need may be. If a veteran needs a ride to the doctor, then he is there to offer that ride. Chadd Winterburg volunteers his time and love to the homeless veterans at ‘The Cove House’. There isn’t a job that needs to be done that Chadd Winterburg doesn’t do. Being a veteran himself, Chadd Winterburg understands that a veteran may be ill on the inside where no one can see. Chadd Winterburg is a compassionate, loving humanitarian. His volunteer work doesn’t stop here, but only begins. Chad Winterburg also volunteers at the VFW in his community. When a fund raiser is need, then Chadd Winterburg is there to help organize and raise money. This is a true humanitarian, Chadd Winterburg. He doesn’t let a clock determine when he can help others. Chadd Winterburg doesn’t do it for recognition. The smile on faces he helps is enough recognition to this humanitarian, Chadd Winterburg.
