#feedthedeed

I don’t know if many of you have heard about #feedthedeed, but it has been showing up all over my Facebook newsfeed for the past couple of weeks.

#Feedthedeed is based off of the concept of a Neknomination, in which a person has to consume a large quantity of alcohol and then nominate their friends to do the same.

A few students in Toronto took the concept of a Neknomination and applied it to random acts of kindness termed “#feedthedeed”.

In order to participate, you perform a small act of kindness, take a picture, post it to Facebook, and nominate more of your friends to do another act of kindness within 24 hours. The idea is that with these small acts of kindness everyone can “pay it forward.”

If you’re interested in getting involved, simply do a random act of kindness and nominate your friends on Facebook with the hasthtag #feedthedeed!
