And thou I bestow all my good to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

I Corinthians (ch. XIII, v. 3).


On Friday, September 11, 2009, Good Deeds International, LLC, held a fish fry to help fund our annual Heritage Ball event.  This day started with very little thought except our hopes and prayers that we would be successful in raising enough capital to assist in providing like minded people to gather for common interests.  Little did we know that the day would bring joy?


GDI wants to let the world know we have a “Prince Among Men” standing aside us.  This Prince, without the fanfare, placed an order to go for 15 hot fish dinners.  Most of us thought nothing of it, but were pleased for such a large order.  We assumed that he was taking it back to work for his coworkers.  After friendly conversation, we learned that this, the biggest order of the day would be for those less fortunate.  Arif Fahim simply said “I’m not going back to work, I’m donating this to the homeless”.  Arif then momentarily greeted all who were there, gathered his order and left.


Good Deeds International was formed so that we could bring a helping hand when needed.  It was formed so that we could share in whatever wealth we could bring to our community and beyond.  In this beginning phase, we learned that it was the people that brought us joy.  People like Ms. Robin and Gloria, who volunteered their time helping us in our cause.  We also must state without the support of our friends and family, this day would not have been so fulfilling.   To be perfectly honest, we have not found our calling yet, but are searching for that mission that can bind us together.



We are a group of people who want more out of life than getting up, going to work, paying bills and, occasionally, going someplace to Step. We are a group that wants to share.  We want our actions to make a difference in the lives of the people we touch.  More importantly, we want to recognize those who through selfless acts make a difference.


Arif, there are few times that I felt the urge to cry…many of those times it was due to sadness and sorrow.  Today it is for the joy of a simple act of kindness.  I want to thank you for that feeling.  May God bless and keep you

In Faith and Hope the world will disagree, But all mankind's concern is charity.
