Read on to discover which Good Deeds Day projects you can sign up for, and find out what big Good Deeds Day events are in store.

1. BEAUTIFYING HOMES

Do you love working with your hands? Help paint and renovate homes of the elderly, mentally ill, disabled, and more who could use the help. You’ll see amazing results right away.

2. FUN WITH CHILDREN OR THE ELDERLY

A classic smile-maker, activities such as playtime, storytime, music and arts and crafts, for kids or the elderly are always needed. If you have a special skill such as clowning, playing an instrument, or dancing, we can connect you with a place that is in need of someone just like you. You can also join a group of instructors, or grab a few friends and help out.

3. PAINTING MURALS

Brighten up kindergartens, social clubhouses and other community centers by painting beautiful murals, and transform what used to be a regular wall into a colourful work of art.

4. SPECIAL DELIVERIES OR TRANSPORTATION

If you have a driving licence and want to do good on the go, you can help out with driving food packs to those in need or toys to kindergartens. You can also pitch in by driving elderly or disabled people to one of our big events.
