Readers can download a free digital copy of Erin McHugh‘s One Good Deed: 365 Days of Trying to Be Just a Little Bit Better on October 12th. The free eBook will be available at Netgalley and eBook retailers.

Just like the book, the publisher hopes to encourage more positive actions through this one good deed. Readers can share their own good Samaritan stories on the “#onegooddeed” Twitter hashtag and post on McHugh’s website.

Here’s more from the release: “One Good Deed originated from a blog that McHugh started one day when she learned that a  distant relative was going to be canonized. Was this a sign to reevaluate her priorities? What followed next was McHugh’s sincere urge to recapture a sense of charity, leading her to do one good deed every day for an entire year. Maybe she wouldn’t be saving orphans from burning buildings or curing cancer, but she wanted to take one small daily detour and make someone else’s life just a little bit better.”
