Have you heard of ‘Random Acts of Kindness’?
Well in this episode I interview Matt Callanan, who after a chance meeting with George Clooney and Bill Murray (yes really!) founded We Make Good Happen, and is now on a mission to collectively make one million good deeds happen worldwide.
It’s a truly inspiring story of one man, making a real and very tangible difference to the lives of the people that he meets, and a wonderful reminder that we can all make good happen, every single day. Matt also shares his story of how his personal experiences making good happen has influenced his approach to his business, and how we might all be able to maximise the good we are doing with our social or ethical projects by doing small good deeds every day.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- Matt’s fascinating story of meeting two of his film idols, and how it changed his life
- The two commodities we all have that we can use to make good stuff happen
- Matt’s top tips for easy ways to ease into doing good deeds (especially if you are too full of British reserve and think you would get embarrassed!)
- The impact of We Make Good Happen, not only on those who are being helped, but on those doing the good deeds too
- How to get involved
