The Goodness Project


English: Homeless in Tallinn, Estonia.

As you already might know I´m participating in Project 365 this year. Because of my interest in writing I made the choice to write stories, prose, haikus, writing craft and that kind of things every day this year. But things are happening, life is changing. I have been thinking back and forward about my choice of topic, about my life, and what to do with it all.

Next year I´ll probably be writing about goodness. I tried to do that in 2011, but it didn´t go very well. My thought was to encourage myself and others to do good, but I ended up being very theoretical. I wrote about goodness, instead of doing good. In 2013 I will focus on the action, and write about what you can do and what I have done. Photos will be proof! There are so many things to be done in this world full of suffering. I´m giving you some examples here.

What Can I Do For Others?

  • Donate blood
  • Donare plasma
  • Register as a donor of your organs
  • Lend a poor person with a great business idea a small amount of money through the organization KIVA
  • Pick the fruit in your garden and donate it to the retirement home in your city
  • Register all your king actions at AOK, and they will donate money to a good cause
  • Do 67 minutes of goodness the 5th of march each year, to celebrate the Mandela Day
  • When buying something, pay for two X (meals, flowers, coffees), and someone gets a free X
  • Do some volunteer work
  • Smile towards people
  • Clean up the streets and parks in your closest surroundings
  • Work for an hour more then usual, and donate the money you earn to a good cause
  • Offer someone one day of your life; “I´m yours today, what can I do for you?”
  • Look at the people surrounding you, and say Thank You. Is your bus driver a very kind person? Tell him!
  • Buy only ecological food, drinks and stuff.
  • Be positive. Sort out all that negativity within you and say nice things to everyone.
  • Give a tip after visiting a restaurant or a pub.


What else is there to do?

  1. What if everyone did one of your suggestions every day? What a great world this would be! I love your published list. Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, I have been out noticing all the garbage on the streets, in the trees, and in the parks. It is time for a Spring Clean-up in my area. There are so many plastic bags. It drives me crazy. 🙂

    • bigsmileu1,
      Thanks for your kind feedback. Yes, it´s true, that if you really think about kindness you see the world from a new perspective. There is so much one can do! Let´s do it together! I am actually thinking of having this project next year, and what if many many bloggers would do the same? Do 1 (ONE) good thing each day, and the blogg about it – 1 picture and some writing. Are you with me?
      Looking forward to see you again,
      Maggie
