Good Deeds Day is taking over the world!
Initiated by Shari Arison in Israel in 2007, Good Deeds Day has since crossed borders and spread worldwide to be held in 61 countries worldwide in 2015, with 930,000 participants from all backgrounds and ages.
Going global in 2011 with 10 international cities, including many in the USA, Good Deeds Day began uniting people all over the world. In 2012, we reached Europe and teamed up with MTV Global for a six-week-campaign on its online and TV platforms, exposing the message to 24 million viewers around the world. In 2013, 16,000 volunteers from 50 countries took part in hundreds of projects, including a kick off with ABC Network in NYC. Next, Good Deeds Day doubled in reach in 2014, partnering for the second year in a row with ABC Network NYC, and collaborating with leading volunteer organizations as part of a grand scale campaign involving TV, radio, and social media. 500,000 people took part in Israel and some 35,000 globally.
In April 2016, Good Deeds Day will celebrate it's 10th year of expanding the circles and growing the goodness in the world. It will be celebrated on April 10, 2016, around the world, and March 15, 2016, in Israel.
