Good Deed Doers
The Holidays were all about giving back, that’s why we’d like to thank, recognize and celebrate all the participants who were involved in our Deeds Well Done Program. It is truly amazing to see all the people actively involved in helping others in their community, which made it very hard to select the winners. One good deed can go a long way! *Font in red link to www.deedswelldone.com
We’d like to introduce you to the 10 Good Deed Doers chosen as our winners. Each were chosen because of their great work in the community and just how they were willing to lend a hand. They all have been awarded $1, 000 to give to the registered charity of their choice plus $100 to spend at MR MIKES for themselves. And here they are with a short summary of why they were nominated:
