Hundreds of thousands of volunteers across the world came together Sunday for Good Deeds Day, an annual day paying it forward, and putting into practice the idea that everyone can do something good for others and positively change the world.

News 12 reports about Brooklyn residents, including members of the congregation at Saint Paul Community Baptist Church who participate this second year in a row in Good Deeds Day, and their unique Good Deeds Day activities: helping children with homework, making get well cards for children in hospitals, writing letterד to military moms, and creating care packages for homeless people.

David Arison, son of Shari Arison initiator of Good Deeds Day: "We are trying to create a critical mass of people doing good, so that we have a better, nicer, and kinder world to live in."
