   Good Deeds Day Sunday, April 7, 2019

Good Deeds Day is a global day that unites people from over 100
countries to do good deeds for the benefit of others and the planet.
Since 2007, millions of people from thousands of businesses and organizations join together every year to volunteer and do good. Major media partners, leading figures, and celebrities such as ABC Network Studios NYC, NASDAQ, Pope Francis, and many more have taken part.
