Erin McHugh had spent many years doing her share of community work,
before the minutiae of daily life eventually kept her too busy for those
higher impulses. Then one day she learned a distant relative was
actually going to be canonized.

Was this a sign to reevaluate her
priorities? What followed next was Erin’s wish to recapture a sense of
charity, and so she set out on her birthday to do one good deed every
day for an entire year. Maybe she wouldn’t be saving orphans from
burning buildings or raising enough money to erase the national debt,
but she wanted to take one small, daily detour and make someone else’s
life just a little bit better.

ONE GOOD DEED is the inspiring, smart,
and frequently funny chronicle of a year when Erin tried to reclaim the
better part of herself, with the hope of inspiring others to do the

One Good Deed… Because we can do a little better.
