The Specifics

Each month, GOOD challenges our community members to do something that will improve the world around us and our own lives. The November challenge is to take a moment each day to appreciate the small things, and in doing so, gain perspective on the big picture.

To support this challenge, we want invite you to document gratitude.

Submit your photo here. Images will be voted on by the community—so be ready to spread the word to your friends. The winning photographer will take home $300. And two runners-up will receive $100 each.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, what better time of the year to reflect on gratitude. Snap a picture of something you’re grateful for—maybe it’s that sweet potato cobbler grandma makes, an act of kindness, the watch your dad gave you after graduation, or your artistic interpretation. Then, submit your idea here. Please include a written description of the significance of your image. Individuals, groups and organizations can submit ideas. Once projects are submitted, rally your colleagues, friends, family, and neighbors to get behind you and join the GOOD community in deciding which image captures that special something.

I have a seventeen year old. She has been raised in a Christian School, Church and seen good lives and bad. Since she was 14 I have seen nothing but bad come into her life. I have been praying and fighting for 3 years for her to turn her life to good, but get disappointed every time. I am still fighting for her future at seventeen and a Senior in High School. We have been through so much and she still does not realize that I am on her side. She is very gifted (135 IQ) but has no common sense. I pray every day that an angel will show her the way, but the devil is the one that rear's his evil to control her actions when I am not around. I know she knows wrong from right but she continues to do wrong even through her life experience shows her that it does not pay.. I pray to God that she will grow up and make the right decisions, but I leave that in God's hands, since I am the person she refuses to listen to. I know that she eventually will find the right path, but I don't know if I can wait. I pray for continued guidance through the rest of the High School year and wish that no one would ever have to go through the heartache and pain I have been through in the last 3 and a half years!

Just wanted to say that this is not only a GOOD idea, its a GREAT idea! I am so inspired by all the causes and great ideas people have. It is always nice to know that there are people out there who genuinely care about others and not just themselves and that there are those who share the same ideas and thoughts as you! Wish every idea could win but since there can be only 3, I am happy to say that whatever cause wins I know the prize will be invested in GOOD cause :D

I just submitted an idea. Thank you for the opportunity! I had two questions: (1) I submitted a photo of my artwork as my image. I hope that's okay. (2) Is there any way to edit the text on my entry once it's been submitted? Thanks.
