If we could, most of us would take the opportunity to give back and put a smile on the face of someone else, but we just don't always know where to start or don't have the ample financing available to make our aspirations a reality. The Canadian Credit Union Servus has spearheaded a project just focused on good deeds.
Feel Good Ripple
The idea of Feel Good Ripple is simple - start giving and catch the bug. The Canadian Credit Union has provided $200,000 to be distributed to individuals around Canada in $10 increments; money that's to be used to do something nice for someone else, creating a ripple effect of good deeds. Those involved in the project can share their feel good stories on the company's website in order to inspire others into doing good deeds. The Canadian Credit Union is hoping that by funding this project, they will remind others how great it feels to give and encourage them to do more of it!
Critics are saying it's a great concept, but one that would never float South of the border in the United States - what do you think?
