The Ted Arison Family Foundation adopted Ruach Tova (Hebrew for Good Spirit), coordinators and promoters of volunteerism in Israel. Ruach Tova connects between individuals who want to volunteer and those in the Israeli community who seek volunteers, serving as a one stop shop for information on volunteering in Israel. Individuals, groups, communities, organizations, and businesses in Israel, all turn to Ruach Tova, who also welcome visitors in Israel that want to volunteer as part of their stay.
The Good Deeds Day flagship project initiated by Shari Arison in 2007, is run and organized by Ruach Tova. Ahead of this day every year, thousands of unique projects are created across Israel and abroad, for every person who wants to participate and do a good deed for the benefit of others.
On Good Deeds Day 2013 some 370,000 Israelis participated, with thousands more in 50 countries worldwide. Activities in Israel were organized under the framework of 5,365 projects for the community and environment, taking place in 191 local authorities, out of which 81 were Arab sector ones.
