Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 52

This will be my last Good Deeds post, I’ve completed a 2 year challenge, enough to make Good Deeds a regular part of my day for the rest of my life.

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I almost finished my second year.

New Good DeedsThis week I’ve been doing the following;

April 12th – Had a big afternoon setting my Mum up with spreadsheets and a Facebook account. Am reading Fallen On Good Times by Rewan Tremethick.

April 13th – It’s still the school holidays so no volunteering at school this morning, had a lunchtime walk and picked up litter instead. Washed loads of crockery and chinaware ready to take to the charity shop.

April 14th – We are into the third week of the A to Z Challenge, made a big effort to visit lots of bloggers today and give my support.

April 15th – Delivered 3 boxes of items to the charity shop. Read Going Through The Change by Samantha Bryant

April 16th – Picked up loads of litter on a morning walk. Today I’m reading Cupids’ Way by Joanne Phillips.

April 17th – We have friends coming over this afternoon, so I’ve baked a cake and nagged the kids to help with housework. In fact while I nipped into town and pocked up litter on the way home, they’d cleaned and tidied the lounge. Am reading Catching Cassidy by Melissa Foster, book one in a new NA series.

April 18th – My friend asked me to help out with a book review and I read James Bone and the Italian Job by Frank Bell a children’s book about secret agent animals. Began reading The Family Trap by Joanne Phillips last evening.

This is it, my final post to end my challenge, which began two years ago as a two week test to see it I could take up the challenge, then it moved to a year and then two years. It’s been an amazing experience and opened my eyes to wonderful everyday opportunities to make my world a better place to live in and to send out ripples into the lives of others who touch mine with friendship or as strangers.

  1. Congratulations on a job well done Rosie! You are an inspiration and these posts have reminded us all that we should think more about what we can do for others and the world around us. Thanks 🙂


  2. Congratulations, Rosie💖 What a wonderful idea for a challenge! I met you during your final months, and you’ve been an inspiration. You’ve reminded me how important it is to focus on all the good things we do and to spread good vibrations and deeds, which I’m sure come back to us in unexpected ways. Thank you for sharing your challenge and your deeds. I feel tempted to try it myself, but I’m a little shy about sharing.


    • You don’t have to share, but it backs up your own commitment ,especially on days when a good deed needs searching for. Plus is makes great blog posts and gets a different sort of reader checking in on you. I hope you do try it. Start small, do a couple of weeks, then a month, then 6 months and it will build up. Don’t try to go big, picking up a piece of litter a day is easy, baking a cake to take to a friend, birthday gifts etc it’s want you see as a good deed which counts.

  3. You have done a fine thing. You inspire me and must surely inspire others to be more conscious about doing a little good each day. Congratulations. Charles


  4. I have followed your challenge Rosie and must say you inspired me to take a closer look at my view of the world. All things must end, but I want you to know it was all worthwhile. Thank you.


  5. Well done Rosie, reading your good deeds have been an inspiration and a reminder of how we can make this world a better place. Started a list of good deeds of my own over the past few months. Not for public consumption though!


  6. Wow, Rosie, you’re amazing! And I’m so proud to have 2 of my books in there too! I love the idea of a year of good deeds, you’ve inspired me to do something similar on my blog. Well done, and thank you x


  7. Hi Rosie, I just wanted to let you know that, though I didn’t keep up to date with the last of these posts, you have been such a huge inspiration. And though I’ve had less blog reading time recently, you continue to read and like my posts and that is such a kindness – thank you. I have no doubt that doing good deeds is well and truly integrated into your every day life, and into your very being now…and it even seems it might be contagious! Your kids cleaned the lounge 🙂 Take care dear friend, and know how appreciated you are, and how far your message has rippled out…
    Hugs, H xxx
