GOOD DEEDS DAY IN URUGUAY
Since 2016, the great idea of the Good Deeds Day was put forward in Uruguay, seeking to inspire and promote solidarity. During these years, actions were carried out with different characteristics in Montevideo, Canelones, Salto, Paysandú, Maldonado and Artigas: interventions on public roads, solidarity campaigns, murals, painting days and at-home recreation days, among others.
For the International Volunteer Day activities, the Good Deeds Day network plays a central role in its planning and execution. Every year an NGO fair is held, with concerts and talks where our movement is promoted and participants are invited to join it. We also have strategic partnerships with global organizations, such as the Red Cross and the Scouts, for the carrying out of volunteer projects with national scope and with great media coverage.
We strongly believe in volunteering and its transformative action, and in the value of working within a network to enhance our reach. We want to reach the entire national territory, and we need you to achieve it.
Good Deeds Day
In Uruguay we are committed to the Good Deeds Day with a view to inspire and promote solidarity throughout the national territory. The goal of this initiative is to bring people and organizations together to do good deeds and encourage more people to volunteer.
We know it is very common to feel like doing something and not knowing how or where … this is why Good Deeds Day is the drive and the framework against which all of us can add our good deed to a global cause, without losing individuality.
We trust that if we want to change our realities and contribute to improving our environment, we must be together and work with common goals, and that is why we partner up with different organizations: in order to contribute to improving people’s quality of life and their environment .
Those of us who believe in participation as an agent of change and in volunteering as a tool for transformation are waiting for you. We want you to help us, to inspire us to pursue new causes, to infect us with new energies and to challenge us every day to be better.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the public health emergency, we had to reschedule our projects. As soon as we resume our activity, there is a project we organised together with the Uruguayan Red Cross in which we will carry out workshops to promote health and good habits in educational institutions. In the meantime, we are designing a graphic campaign to show what has been done during these difficult moments for everyone. We look forward to meeting more people and organizations who want to join this solidarity network of Good Actions where we support each other and generate great links that allow us to grow and reach more and more people every year.
