We are often asked about the difference between 'Being Nice' and 'Doing Good'.
Being nice is about what you do. You are in control of how nice you are, and when you do something for someone else it's because you feel compelled too, so you engage in some positive action in their direction. That is being nice.
Doing good is about what happens for the person or persons you are helping. Doing good implies that good happened for the person who needed help. Good based on their needs.
Being nice is you doing something. Doing good is something happening for someone else in need.
It is possible to do good without necessarily being nice, and it is possible to be nice without doing good although ideally we would like to see people doing both.
We are called the Just Be Nice Project because it is possible for everyone to be a little bit nicer right now.
While we believe that being nice is accessible to every person. We also believe that when we combine the desire to be nice, with the skills and resources of talented individuals and organisations we can do incredible amounts of good.
We are here for all those who agree.
