Good deeds abound

I was talking to two friends yesterday about gooddeedschicago.com, a website our company started recently, and I was telling them the story of its creation:  One day, this past summer, two really good deeds were done for my husband and for me in Chicago. (One, a wallet was returned, and the other, a stranger gave me his parking slip which had an extra hour on it.) I loved hearing their responses. “Oh, yeah, there are lots of good things people do in this city, I have a lot of my own examples,”  one of my friends said. We started talking about what a good deed is: anytime a person goes out of his or her way to help another–something he or she doesn’t do on a regular basis–so opening the door for someone, while nice, isn’t in our definition of a good deed. A good deed is inspiring to others; it is something that when you tell someone about it, they say “Cool” or “ahhhhh.”  My friend said she would share some with me. To be continued…–Christina
