It is with great pleasure to welcome you to the registry of the Good Deeds Project!

This is officially the beginning of where you can take part in the project yourself by taking part in meeting the needs to start the good deeds!

This project is a journey, beginning on the East coast of North America to the West Coast. The idea is to offer good deeds all along the way, while also featuring others doing good deeds, bringing it together into a documentary. The project will inspire others through talks, workshops, and social media to take part and to really explore the idea that good deeds actually make massive differences in people's lives.

Because I was moved by too many experiences of suicide, I began really educating myself and getting trained on suicide prevention and awareness development. As it turns out, what I found to be the greatest tools to support suicide prevention are what I thought was common sense- acknowledging others, listening, being present, paying attention to others - offering care, love and support. Apparently these concepts are not so common.

In my community we had over half a dozen teen suicides in a two year span and, as you can imagine, it was very tragic for many. I have been working at a children's mental health agency and volunteering with a hospice bereavement group in high schools, a suicide prevention committee and our local distress line. I have various trainings in suicide prevention and awareness through a global program called Living Works. I have also been offering individual and group support for kids, youth and adults through my own private practice. I was noticing that much of what I was offering was really helping people and the ultimate suicide prevention was to learn how to live a life we love to be part of. I started asking myself, 'how can I help even more people?' and this question has led me on a journey. I started with a YouTube channel, Laura Louise, posting a show "Live and Love With Laura" every Wednesday. Then I wrote a book that ranked number one on amazon for suicide and mental health. I started creating workshops and programs through the use of the book and things took off.

The question has moved into a complete movement called 'The Good Deeds Project'. The idea is to start on the East Coast and drive to the West Coast doing talks in schools, community centres and yoga studios, etc.. Anywhere with anyone who will listen! We'd be offering good deeds all along the way and featuring others who are doing good deeds. The whole project would be filmed and made into a documentary to inspire others that good deeds go a long way.

My vision is to drive a Dolorean with a Tiny House for this project. The theme would be returning from the future, with an understanding that good deeds are the way to world peace and the way to save the world.

If you landed here, you are already part of the project and can make a good deed happen right now! Send the project some love, share this page with others, and take a look around to see how you or someone you know might be able to help!

Much love to you!

Tiny House, Big Difference

I thought about the hippy van, an RV or pulling a trailer. Then someone introduced me to Tiny Houses. I can only imagine crossing the country in one of these custom made Tiny Houses - dedicated and donated to the Good Deed Project. This will promote the movement of living simply, happy and on the go; as well as moving off the grid and really being environmentally friendly.

Builders, Blueprints & Building Materials

An alternative that has been coming up is the idea of having people build the house. I have no interest in building on my own, but I can totally get juiced if a group of people decided to take this on as a project. Tumbleweed Tiny Homes Company and other companies have blueprints for this possibility. This idea would open the door for other needs: builders, blueprints & building materials.

The Car, The Pull, The DeLorean

It only makes sense in my imagination that a Tiny House be pulled by the car from Back to the Future! The theme of "knowing" what is to come and how to save the world with one good deed at a time, well, it really all comes together. The way of the future- live off the grid, live simply, happy, and go and be wherever and whoever you are a called to. The image of a Tiny House with a DeLorean speaks volumes that I don't even have to say a word. The image on the road will catch attention and the image in all the places that will be visited will forever remember the way into the future is to offer small acts of kindness and good deeds in any way you can.

The Camera Behind the Project

Although I have some small cameras to film; I'm thinking to really make this a professional project I am going to need a professional camera. I would love to receive some advice on what camera would be best suited for this job- as well as borrow a camera, receive a donated camera, or have someone who wants to film join the project and be the camera! Road trip anyone?
