Good Deeds Day 2020, the yearly pinnacle event of doing good, was a very unique celebration. When the daywas postponed for in-person events and it was clear that Good Deeds Day was going virtual, the people who make the day happen didn’t let that obstacle stop them.

The GDD team saw that people and organizations were doing good in their communities focusing on the distribution of food, masks, hand sanitizer, and other essential items during the early days of the pandemic, according to Stephanie Fabricant, the digital marketing coordinator of Good Deeds Day. “So many partners participated and celebrated Good Deeds Day right from their own homes,” she said. 

That’s why the team  decided to highlight these acts of kindness by running a 24-hours of Good Deeds From Home on Facebook and Instagram and scheduled for Good Deeds Day on March 29, 2020. Each of the partner organizations that GDD works with shared a 1-minute video and the posts ran that day into the next.

Here are just some of the amazing projects that were done around the globe. And don't forget that Good Deeds Day 2021 will be on April 11. Registration is open.
