WORK GIVES DIGNITY AND FREEDOM
IT OPENS US TO SEE
YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Each purchase employs
one vulnerable woman.
The need for compassion and to hear the call for kindness.
One deed, one bead, one act of kindness at a time.
SEE THE BRACELETS
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.
The rules of the game: A “good deed” means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone and only counts if the deed remains anonymous.
Thomas shared the game with Mary who responded by creating the 100 Good Deeds bracelet. The bracelet is both a call to do good deeds and a strategy to empower women.
Thomas' game and Mary’s bracelet have together launched a worldwide 100 Good Deeds movement.
A “good deed” means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone and only counts if the deed remains anonymous.
The 100 Good Deeds project is made possible
by the Abataka Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3)
The Abataka Foundation provides economic and educational opportunities to women and girls across Africa and elsewhere. Proceeds from the sale of 1GD bracelets are reinvested in the program, supporting more women and girls with more training in even more countries.
WHO MADE IT
Bracelets are made by vulnerable women, many HIV+, who've been trained for this work in Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda & Haiti, Bali, India and New York.
This project gives women a way to support their families through earnings, while empowering them to also contribute to good deeds around the world. Curious about the woman who made your bracelets? Your bracelet package will be signed by her!
MEET THE LADIES
To adjust the length, slide the knot along the cord, closer to the button.
Each time you do a good deed, move the ring one bead closer to the button.
Wrap it around your wrist three times and adjust the length for comfort.

Together we are changing the world, one bead, one deed at a time.
Our opportunities are unlimited. The bracelet gives us 100 chances to be grateful!
good deeds worldwide, and counting…
