    My good deed for this weekend is to buy a book for donation at Barnes & Noble. They have a special group they are donating too

  2. I like this challenge! I’m going to donate some books to the local Family Services place. Happy reading!

    My good deed is we are adopted a family at work to give Christmas presents to and we are collecting everything this week and wrapping it all up. We will be delivering the presents on the 19th (that’s when the charity requires us to). I donated all of my Twilight stuff to the teenage girl who loves Twilight. I will also be sending a random blogger a RAK gift this weekend.

    I ‘adopted’ a 3yo girl off the Shop with a Cop Christmas Tree. I also donated items to a family in need. Anonymous good deeds leave such a lovely feeling!

  5. J.R.Roper says:

    So far this weekend I bought 4 books to give away to underpriviledged students at my school who love to read but have few books of their own and will be buying 3 more before holiday break.

  6. Betsy says:

    Thanks for this, ladies! I just gave charity to a local food pantry!

  7. Natalie says:

    I “adopt” soldiers serving overseas throughout the year. I just sent a Christmas package to the group over there now. I also made a gingerbread house for a charity auction and I will be donating to a food bank and of course Toys for Tots.

  8. Courtney says:

    This week I made little goodie bags to give out to the homeless on the street corners in ATL .It seems they are everywhere. Inside are cereal bars, toiletries, hard candy, mini-toothbrushes and paste. And even items that I had in the pantry like Emergen-c which I know we will never use. Things we won’t use or miss but could mean a lot to that solitary figure on the corner. I carry theses bags and bottled water in my car for when I get stopped near someone in traffic. Thanks for the lovely challenge and what a great prize!

  9. Alyssa says:

    We will be waking over to the homeless shelter we used to live at and will be donating food tomorrow morning.

  10. Mary says:

    I made cookies today for an art museum’s annual fundraiser party.

  11. David says:

    I really dislike reading. Growing up my parents used it as a punishment so as an adult it’s hard to find the fun in it. That said I am participating in the holiday readathon. My wife and I got people to sponsor us and donate a certain amount per page we read during the readathon. All proceeds are going to Sesame Street Workshop.

  12. Lydia says:

    My good deed this weekend was that I helped clean up the school gym of chairs and popcorn after a basketball game. I also am setting aside my change to donate to the MS society later on.

Have something to add? (leave a reply)
