HOW IT BEGAN
Mary Fisher—artist, author, advocate—spent a decade partnering with vulnerable women in Africa, designing jewelry made by the women to earn a dignified livelihood.

She had just released her memoir, Messenger, a story of discovering joy in service, when she met Thomas Morgan, filmmaker and father, who created the 100 Good Deeds game with his family.

We want to show that one simple act can make a large impact. Join us. Join the #DeedADay movement.







About The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet

The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet is hand-braided by vulnerable women worldwide in countries such as Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, India, Indonesia, and Haiti. The braided cord is then strung with one hundred unique glass beads and a single rubber ring. They are available for purchase at 100GoodDeeds.org in nineteen colors and two sizes, medium/large or petite/small. One hundred percent of proceeds from sales are reinvested in the 100 Good Deeds program.

In partnership with The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet Organization, eight major blogger networks across the United States are teaming up to create an influencer and social media movement. The goal is to get the public to make good deed resolutions for the New Year. 

ChiIL Mama will be in great company, teaming up with The b-Link Marketing Network by BlogaliciousClever Girls CollectiveEverywhere SocietyLatina Bloggers ConnectMom It ForwardNiche Parent NetworkOne2One Network and Type A Parent Network. In total, this movement will be shared directly with over 50 thousand bloggers and influencers throughout the United States. Stacey Ferguson, Chief Curator of Be Blogalicious and the b-Link Marketing Network said, "We decided to band together and use our voices for social good."

ChiIL out with ChiIL Mama in Chi, IL, across the nation, and around the world, to make your new years resolution count for 2015. Join the 1 Good Deed a Day movement! 


Danica Kombol, owner of the social media marketing firm, Everywhere Agency, noted, "New Years resolutions are typically self-serving and rarely accomplish any result. We wondered what we could do with the power of the blogosphere to turn the concept of the New Year’s resolution on its head and actually generate positive change. With the collective force of all the blogger networks involved, combined with the empowering message that The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet represents, there is no limit to how far the #DeedADay movement will stretch."

ChiIL Mama's doing a #DeedADay... are YOU?!


The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet was created by Mary Fisher – artist, author, advocate – who spent a decade partnering with at-risk women in Africa and around the world, designing jewelry made by the women to earn a dignified livelihood. Fisher, a leader in global social change, launched The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet, a handcrafted collection that symbolizes a commitment to perform good deeds and bring about positive change in the world.

“The motivation behind The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet collection is to inspire simple acts of kindness around the world,” said Mary Fisher. “Each bracelet is a reminder to spread positive change through action and fulfill our mission to Do Good, One Deed, One Bead, One Act of Kindness at a Time.”

Barbara Jones of the One2One Network added, "Being the founder of a women's influencer network, I love everything that the 100 Good Deed Bracelets represents and the 'pay it forward' concept of the #DeedADay campaign just felt right for us in every way! By combining forces with so many well-respected colleagues and networks, we're excited to see the impact we can make together."

Interested in joining the movement? The #DeedADay movement will be shared on all social platforms with an emphasis on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest now through January 3rd, for our big launch. Follow along and ChiIL out with ChiIL Mama on our social media platforms above. 

We love that the 100 deeds are anonymous & you get to track them by moving your ring around the 100 beads on the bracelet. Here at ChiIL Mama we're super stoked about starting 2015 with a good #DeedADay and a beautiful bracelet for social good! Are you in?!
