She Impacts the World

Shari Arison, a global business leader and philanthropist initiated Good Deeds Day in 2007 in Israel, with 7,000 participants. It has grown since to more than 250,000 good deed doers in more than 50 countries across the globe.
Shari is “one of the world’s greenest billionaires in 2010 for her contributions to the environment, both in Israel and throughout the world, which she puts into practice in her business dealings.”
She does not only lead the world in doing good deeds, but she also inspires readers through her new book, “Activate Your Goodness – Transforming the World Through Doing Good.”
According to Shari, “by consciously choosing positive words, feelings, and actions every day, each of us can enhance the goodness in the world. I believe that doing good will not only transform and enrich our lives greatly, but it will also create a powerful ripple effect. Our personal and collective acts of kindness to ourselves and others will ultimately impact all aspects of life, the planet, and the whole of humanity.”
She says, if we only “Think Good, Speak Good, and Do Good,” we can transform the world.
