Books Info:

One Good Deed free pdf For a couple of decades, Erin McHugh was very active doing community work, but in more recent years, she felt that she'd slipped away from those efforts. Around the time of this realisation, she also learned that a distant relative was going to be canonised. Could this be a sign? What followed next was Erin's sincere urge to reclaim a sense of charity and community and so she set out on her birthday to do one good deed every day for an entire year. Maybe she wouldn't find herself saving orphans from a burning building, but she wanted to take one small, daily detour and make someone else's life just a little bit better. One Good Deed is the heartfelt chronicle of that year. Each page represents a day in Erin's journey and recounts in inspiring, smart and frequently funny prose exactly what she did to help another person. Sometimes it was just aiding a mum on the subway stairs with her baby or offering a stranger some needed change at the cashier. Or it could be making life easier for a cashier when another customer seemed intent on making it worse. And, occasionally Erin learned a little more than she wanted- when you follow through on childhood learnt lessons of offering up your seat on the bus to older ladies, don't get too indignant when someone younger politely does it for you.
