Good Deeds Week 13th – 19th October

This is my weekly update on my challenge to do at last 1 Good Deed a day for a year. I follow in the footsteps of Judith O’Reilly who was the inspiration for this project. I read her book “A Year of Doing Good” and began my own diary of deeds on the day I began her book.

Good deedsOctober 13th – Busily uploaded 3 book reviews this morning and wrote up the drafts for later on the blog. Let a friend know I was thinking of her in a time of need.

October 14th – Helped out at school again this morning. Good Deeds received; An abundance of thanks for my help in school today.

October 15th – Picked up litter on my way to the post box. Spent longer at work than my allotted time, just to finish off the back log of work.

October 16th – Went to visit my Mum and drop some items off. Good deeds received: My Mum gave me some fresh eggs. Later my friends took me out for a meal, it was great to catch up with them.

October 17th – Caught up with a friend by e-mail, sent another friend some interesting medical material that I’d found.

October 18th – Went to visit a friend today, who has been poorly recently and took along some home baked cakes.

October 19th – Got involved in an internet conversation about gifting books and the compatibility or not of sending gifts from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.  Found a link to another site and shared my find. For anyone interested in the conversation follow this link http://chrismcmullen.wordpress.com/2013/10/19/gifting-ebooks-outside-the-us-any-problems/

  1. I applaud you. I should really keep a diary and do this good deed thing. As I mature, (or age, depending how you choose to look at it), I find that I don’t have as much purpose in life as I would like to have. I know I have people who love me and need me, but I am missing that greater sense of purpose that comes from taking that one step beyond in my community.

    • Thank you, I think writing the deeds down actually focusses the attention on them and gives them a purpose, it does make you feel good when you re-read them at other times too.
