One Small Deed was created because we could no longer stand by while so many people were living rough on the streets around us. We wanted to make a difference and provide some small help to those who don’t have a roof over their heads. As such, we consulted with local homeless charities and created a homeless pack, consisting of toiletries, food and clothing. Anybody can sign-up to receive a pack, and the aim is for everyone in our community to have a pack in their car at all times. Through this, whenever a homeless person is passed on the street, there will be somebody on hand to help. The project is simple and requires minimum effort - simply place the pack in your car and be on the lookout to help others whenever you go for a drive. By doing this one small deed, you are changing your life and the world around you. Use this one act as inspiration: start here with one small deed, and you’ll see how easy it is to become a giver. Rabbi Sacks Zt’’l said it best: "We do not have to redeem the world all together in one go. We do it one day at a time, one person at a time, one act at a time. A single life, said the Sages, is like a universe. Save a life and you save a world. Change a life and you begin to change the world".
