Impacting Lives is Something I Strive To Do Everyday. Whether Its A Smile, Hug, Conversation, Picture Or Simply Spreading The Love…. Well As I Was Walking Last Night With My Family In My New City (Salt Lake City). I Noticed A Large Group Of Men, Women And Even Children. But The Group I Noticed Maybe Had A Blanket, A Cart Filled With Things, Dirty Clothes, And Wasn't Sure When Their Last Meal Was… So Why Not Make That My One Good Deed Of The Day And Impact A Couple Lives. So Went To Wendys And Grabbed A Bunch Of Cheese Burgers, Fries Bought Some Bottled Waters And Walked Down Rio Grande Till We Reached A Park Up The Street And Passed Out Hot Meals And Mingled. Had A Great Time Listening To Some Of Their Stories… So I Challenge Everyone To Spread The Love And Do A Good Deed Once A Day. DM Me Some Of Your Good Deeds And I Will Start Posting Some Of Your Impactful Stories. Together We Can Spread The Love… #GoodDeeds #ImpactingLives #SpreadTheLove

Some people talk about giving back to their community. Others put their money where their mouth is. Former Pacers guard George Hill landed in Utah this summer after being blindsided by a multi-team trade that netted Indiana Jeff Teague, and it looks like he’s wasted no time trying to make a difference in his new community.

In a recent Instagram post, Hill talks about how he and his family were walking around town one night when they came across a homeless camp. Instead of simply turning a blind eye, Hill decided to buy everyone dinner. Here’s the full text of his post.

What Hill did was truly inspiring, if only on a small scale, and starting an IG trend of people posting about their good deeds could certainly snowball into something more meaningful.
