The Everyday Good Team
Heather Burke -Cody
WE ARE THE EVERYDAY GOOD.
It started with a feeling.
She calls it a soul-nudge.
Our founder, Heather Burke-Cody, didn’t plan to start a movement. She simply started looking around for ways to help one another. She didn’t have to look too hard or too far to see the needs in her own community. She figured her hometown was a good place to start.
Her goal was to serve ten families. So she gathered a small group of friends and they began to work and think. Plan and pray. Word spread. Soon, others joined. Many others--school kids, young people, old people, doctors, lawyers, teachers, preachers, city workers, lunchroom ladies. They all linked arms and filled an empty warehouse with Gifts for Good. They gave away everything -- food and clothes, blankets and beds, groceries and gift cards--they even gave away a gas-guzzling pick-up truck.
And just like that, ten families turned into a hundred. A soul-nudge turned into a movement. A movement turned into a non-profit. And they named it The Everyday Good.
We are proof that a single idea, birthed by God and guided by a soul-nudge, has the power to change the lives of everyday good people all around us.
But that’s just the beginning of a really good story...
IT’S ALL GOOD.
In a chaotic world of bad news and bad things and bad people, there is a Greater Good which exists. And It lives within each of us.
We’re everyday people looking for the everyday good in our everyday lives.
The only thing worth doing in this life, is what we do for one another. We all have the power to look for opportunities to be The Everyday Good through our words, stories, thoughts, actions, and deeds. Our calling is to see the good, find the good, and then be the good with the hope that all of us do-gooders can change the world in everyday good ways.
