    No. I've done good deeds and never told anyone about it.

    If your sole purpose was to get praise then it's a selfish act. If you did it as a good deed and talk about it, that's okay.

    (1) depends upon why you went public
    (2) do you really think there is someone up in the clouds keeping score?
    (3) do you think that at some point in your life there will be an accounting?

    The only reason to do good or bad things is because you believe its the right thing to do. if you're doing or not doing because you think someone is keeping score (or you believe in karma) then you missed the whole point.

    What if you do a good deed for the tax deduction but don't talk about it?
