International Good Deeds Day 2017 is right around the corner and millions of volunteers worldwide are ready to kick of this day of goodness with countless amazing volunteering projects. If you also want to be a part of the global movement of doing good but just didn’t have to time to prepare a project until now, we got you covered. Check out these last-minute ideas for doing something good and pick the one that is right for you.

1. ORGANIZE AN IMPROMPTU CLOTHES DRIVE

Well preserved and functional clothes are always in high demand. And what better day could there be to get people motivated to donate the clothes they don’t use anymore than Good Deeds Day. Head over to The Street Store to get all the files, posters, badges, etc, that you will need to set up your clothes drive and check out these great tips to make sure it’ll be a resounding success.

2. MAKE A STRANGER SMILE

No good deed goes unnoticed and the simple gesture of giving the gift of a smile to a complete stranger is always welcome. Bake a bunch of cookies, hand out flowers, or even just free hugs - anything to brighten someone’s day for no other reason than because you can. Call up a few friends to multiply the goodness and you have your very own Good Deeds Day project ready. (Don’t forget to take some pictures of all the happy people.)

3. ORGANIZE A MEAL TRAIN

One of the best ways to show someone that you care about them is to offer food. Some of life's most complicated circumstances - birth, death, illness, and surgeries included - are followed by the overwhelming need for a whole lot of help and Meal Train is the perfect platform to make helping out as easy as could be. Use the site’s potluck option to get together everyone at your local church, community center, or scout chapter.
