Welcome to The Challenge! Twenty-five days. Think you can do it? I know you can. And I suspect that on Day 26, at least some of you just may decide to keep on giving. But I'm getting ahead of myself. So let's just begin at the beginning, shall we?
5. This should be something you do above and beyond your every day life - outside of your job, your regular family obligations, etc. That doesn't mean you can't do something extra special for a family member or colleague, just that it should be unexpected, out of the ordinary, and nothing for which you expect to be compensated. (Here's a hint: An "I love you" note inside the lunch bag of the loved one whose lunch you make every day would go a long way toward meeting the goal of an unexpected, out of the norm gesture done solely for the purpose of positively impacting someone else's day. Unless said loved one is one's teenager, in which case ... no.)
I would LOVE to post anything you would be willing to send - your journal entries, vlogs you would be willing to create and send, links to your own blogs about this challenge (which I hope you will share as widely as possible on your Facebook and Twitter pages), so PLEASE go to the "Contact Me" page and send whatever you have and comment, comment, comment here, too. And remember, the more you share here, the more ideas others will take from you about similar ways to give. So think of your willingness to share as one more way to give.
