What Makes A Good Person ??

BGTP Story

Yesterday’s posting asked the question, What Makes A Good Priest?? In all fairness, I decided to find out whatmakes a  good person. In my travels through the internet world of google, I came across the BGTP (Be Good To People) story. Its philosophy is to promote “being good to people world-wide”.  I’d like to hear your experiences of good people helping you and you helping others. A great way to put some “good”  to our summer fun. DrNick  PS: In my mind the apparel and life-style accessories are secondary to the message. Please read their story.
The Story
The idea for Be good to people. ® was inspired believe it or not, by a rude experience that founder Kris Wittenberg had back in the spring of 2008 while running errands at lunch. The exact bad experience has long been forgotten but the idea that people need to be better to one another has not.

Once back in the office of her promotional products company, SayNoMore! Promotions, she exasperatingly asked, “Why can’t people just be good to people?” Given her entrepreneurial spirit and her longing for a friendlier world she researched to see if the phrase was trademarked and if the web address was taken.

Thankfully everything was available and she took that as a “sign”. She knew she had to act, so she secured both the name and the web address and Be Good to People, the brand and the movement, was born.
