Good Deeds Day is an annual celebration of doing good—where all around the world hundreds of thousands volunteer to help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and change the world. Good Deeds Day was initiated by businesswoman and philanthropist, Shari Arison, and is organized and launched by Ruach Tova, the one-stop shop in Israel for any individual, group or organization wishing to volunteer, and for any person, group or organization requiring aid.

This April, for the third year in a row, the Greater Washington community will join Israel and countries from across the globe for this community day of service. Established in 2007, Good Deeds Day celebrates the value and importance of giving back to the community we live in. In our community alone, last year we had 3,500 volunteers who took part in this initiative. This day will offer our entire community a variety of hands-on volunteer projects where they can roll up their sleeves and make an impact.

This year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around the world will continue to take part in this community day of service. On April 6, 2014, in Greater Washington alone, more than 5,000 are expected to join the international Jewish community in making a difference. Whether you want to dance the day away with senior citizens, prepare and serve lunch to the homeless, help unite dogs with their forever homes or even help clean up a local park, a project that interests you awaits. Let’s show the international Jewish community what our Greater Washington community can do.
