About This Project

Sharing stories of regular people doing good things
to help others and bridge divides.
You can too.

 

I live in Austin, Texas. In 2016, I noticed I was becoming increasingly distracted by, frustrated with and anxious about the state of the world. With a non-stop barrage of headlines about divisive politics and angry people, I made a decision. Rather than going down (and staying down) the rabbit hole of negativity, I started to focus on regular people who do good things to help others and bridge divides. I knocked on my neighbor’s door and asked if I could take her picture. She doesn’t use Facebook; in fact she doesn’t even own a computer. I wrote a short narrative about how she spends her time, and I popped it up on Facebook. The response was immediate. So I kept going. Feel free to nominate others in the contact form, and share your own stories.  #peopledogoodthings
