Do Good

10 points of light to brighten your world

What’s the point of one person,
doing one mitzvah, just one time?

Look at the world as equally balanced between good and bad, and that a single good deed can tip the scale for good.

Also, every mitzvah causes a chain reaction. Helping another makes you feel good, feeling good makes you happy, and happy people do more good.
An avalanche of good deeds.

So really, one good deed can change the world.
