I believe we can all do something to make the lives of others a little brighter, if only for a minute. We all have the ability responsibility to make the world around us a better place. Most of us don't realize just how much of an impact we have on the world and its inhabitants. We drudge through each day. Our goal: to make it through in one piece.

It doesn't have to be that way. Mahatma Gandhi said, "We must become the change we want to see in the world." The idea is a well-worn one; you get what you give, you gotta spend to earn, laugh and the world laughs with you, etc.
All this in mind, knowing I had the ability to make someone smile, or laugh, or take action inspired me to actually want to do it.

In college I minored in philosophy. There was a constant debate about altruism - do people do things out of the goodness of their hearts or because it makes the them feel good about themselves? Keeping this in mind, I decided to pursue this project surreptitiously. People need not know who the well-wisher is. The only thing I have on my pieces of good will is the website address - not to pay credit to me, but to hopefully inspire others to do what I am doing.

Enter Guerilla Good Will. Let's make a change.
