10 Day Give Challenge Kicks Off

I wanted to remind my readers that today is the first day of the 10 Day Give challenge. Earlier this week, I wrote about 10 simple ways to give. Most of these fit even the tightest budget, some cost only a few dollars or cents and others cost nothing but time and love.

The challenge is not a contest, or another item to guilt you if you don’t follow through. It’s simply a challenge to do your best. The goal is to:

1. Change the lives of those around you.
2. Change your own life by better understanding the joy of giving.
3. Make the world a better place one gift at a time.

Whether you believe in God, karma, or just helping out your fellow humans, I encourage you to take part in this and make some small changes for the better in the world. Consider visiting the 10 Day Give forums to share your experiences and ideas.

Btw, one gift I didn’t mention in the earlier post is the gift of commenting. Maybe that sounds weird, but most bloggers feel that (almost) every comment is a gift. It’s an encouragement, another reason to continue. So for if you’re looking for ideas, why not start by leaving a few thoughtful comments around the blogosphere?

Here’s a comment for you!

I’ve been a very uninspired blogger lately so perhaps the 10 day give challenge is just what I need to get back into feeling inspired.

Thanks, Mrs. M!

Something to remember with the coming winter and people scrimping more for the necessities is that your local foodbank is running dry. If you have it in your budget, do them a kindness and drop off a sack.

Via the blogosphere, my sister and I recently got a urgent message from our local foodbank courtesy of another blogger – they were out of canned and dried goods completely!

Since my tax refund had (finally) come in, she and I went shopping and took them ten or so bags of canned goods and dried goods for their stores. It won’t feed a nation, but it’ll feed someone.

What a great idea!

And, thank you for mentioning comments as gifts! I’ve just recently switched to the “publishing” side and it is absolutely true that each and every comment means so much!
