encourages people to demonstrate kindness and compassion, is set to take
place Nov. 11-17. Throughout the week people across the country are
invited to share their positive stories on social media using the
What started as an effort to change the social media conversation for
one week in 2016, has expanded to a social and experiential movement to
inspire kindness, give back and promote good news.
"Intersport is excited to celebrate and inspire kindness during Do Good
Week," said Shannon Dan, Executive Vice President, Intersport. "What
started as a way of infusing kindness into social conversation has truly
become a movement, and we look forward to growing this effort and its
impact for years to come."
Now in its third year, Do Good Week will be brought to life in its
biggest year yet through activities aimed at inspiring kindness and
making a difference in New Orleans, Seattle and Chicago.
On the heels of Veterans Day, and to thank those who have served, Do
Good Week volunteers and the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame Wide
Receiver Michael Lewis are teaming up Monday, Nov. 12 at the Southeast
Louisiana Veterans Home to emcee a talent show.
"Our veterans have been asking to do a talent show for a while, so they
are thrilled to see this request come to life thanks to some very kind
volunteers in honor of Do Good Week," said Sonya Hebert, Southeast
Louisiana Veterans Home Activities Director. "We have some veterans who
are singers, dancers and even poets, who have been preparing their
talents for a few months now in anticipation of this talent show.
They're going to have so much fun!"
On Wednesday, Nov. 14, award-winning Chef Holly Smith of Café
Juanita, will lead an impactful volunteer event at Mary's
Place Seattle, an emergency shelter for families experiencing
homelessness in the Pacific Northwest. Volunteers will help prepare the
day's meals for the Women's Day Center and help package pantry starter
kits for families who have recently been placed into housing.
"I am excited to work with everyone at Mary's Place alongside this
passionate group of volunteers to create a healthy and dynamic meal for
the shelter in honor of Do Good Week," said Smith. "I care deeply about
helping ensure everyone have access to wholesome meals. I have long
admired Mary's Place and feel fortunate to be able to help."
Do Good Week will wrap up Friday, Nov. 16 in Chicago where citygoers
will be treated to random acts of kindness. Chicagoans should keep their
eyes peeled for Do Good Week volunteers and local celebrities, like
former Chicago football star Alex Brown, as they visit local businesses
and landmarks throughout the day to hand out gifts and pay it forward.
Everyone is encouraged to join the movement to spread good during Do
Good Week. Get involved by volunteering with a non-profit, buy a
stranger a coffee, hide a Kindness Rock or take care of an elderly
neighbor's lawn. Then, share that positive story on social media using
