Last month, GOOD and Levi's teamed up to bring you the "A Day in a Pair" contest, which awarded three lucky readers with $100 to use towards doing good in one day. (And an added bonus from Levi’s of a $150 Levi's gift card.) Submissions have closed, and we are now excited to present each of the winner’s days.
Shawna Potter, an activist and a member of a feminist punk rock band, wanted to get Baltimore residents registered to vote in time for the upcoming election. A firm believer that it’s not about who you vote for, but having access to vote for whomever you wish, Shawna set out to give her fellow community members to power to get to the polls.
Potter’s first stop was right outside her front door. On her way to make copies, Potter shows her apartment complex handyman how he can register to vote.
Potter's next stop of the day was a local office supply shop to make copies of the voter registration form.
