So Tyler Perry returns this month with a new release titled Good Deeds. Perry plays Wesley Deeds, an executive whose perfect, yet monotonous, life takes a turn in an unexpected direction when he performs a good deed. This one seems to be another feel good movie, and while I never tire of those on the big screen, Good Deeds is taking this concept from the screen to real life . A campaign has been built around the movie called Good Deeds: Great Needs.
The purpose of this initiative is to provide support to Covenant House-a non-profit organization that provides hearty meals, warm beds, and safe shelter to homeless youth. They are partnering with a company called Gift Card Giver,an Atlanta-based organization that collects unused gift cards and distributes remaining balances to non-profit organizations.
Gift Card Giver will donate all gift cards collected through the Good Deeds: Great Needs initiative to Covenant House. To further support the initiative, Lionsgate will make a financial donation in support of Covenant House each time the Good Deeds:Great Needs video is shared through www.gooddeedsgreatneeds.com! The cast includes Phylicia Rashad, Thandie Newton, Gabrielle Union, and Brian White. Good Deeds opens nationwide on February 24th!
