14 Dec NN #21: One Good Deed for Christmas
We’re getting in the Christmas spirit here at Neighbourhood Network! This holiday season, we’d love you to join us in spreading some more neighbourly joy in your community. That’s why we’ve launched our new ‘One Good Deed’ initiative. We hope you’ll join in!
One Good Christmas Deed
It’s important that we find ways to come together and support each other this holiday season. We want to inspire neighbours in communities all over the country to participate in some random acts of kindness by doing a good neighbourly deed for the holidays!
By taking the time to do just one good deed for a neighbour, you can help to spread joy to your neighbourhood! Whether that’s taking a bit of extra time to grit someone’s driveway when it gets a bit colder or dropping over a Christmas card, it really is the thought that counts.
We’d love to hear about your ideas and the good neighbourly deeds you’ve done. Share them on Twitter or Instagram with #onegooddeed so we can celebrate community together this holiday season.

With help from the Oireachtas, we’ve launched a lovely new Irish language version of our website- Meitheal Áitiúil! You’ll find a few of our favourite activities from our Community Activity Challenge as gaeilge. Check out Tae ag Trí and Grúpa Siúlóide to name a few!
