Charity Challenge: Paying It Forward On A Budget + Blogger Link Up

Is your house filled with candy? Do you have chocolate coming out of your ears? Can you see a cavity just by looking at it all? If you’re anything like me you want to get it out without wasting it.

I’m sure there are kids that didn’t get candy this Easter and would really love to feel like a kid again so this week’s challenge is gonna be eaaaaaaaaaaasy!

Yuppers, it’s that time of the week again! The one where I issue the super-exciting Charity Challenge. Every Tuesday morning I’ll issue a challenge for the week. Your mission if you choose to accept is simply to go do it!

Last week I challenged everyone to clear out their half empty packs of diapers and donate it to a food pantry in their neighborhood or drop it off at Kolas Bookstore, Highland.

Who did it? I hope you joined me to help out those in dire need.

Now for this week’s challenge:

Although the need seems HUGE and the challenge daunting, we CAN help. Don’t be frightened by the huge numbers, we’re gonna take it slow and pay it forward.

Ready? This is gonna be:
* simple
* convenient
* and of course……

Third Challenge: Candy

I took a look at Isaac’s candy and first of all I took out the hard candy ready for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes! Then I grabbed some for him to enjoy throughout the next few weeks and the rest I will be donating. Check the expiration dates. Candy usually has far off dates meaning this would even be great for projects like Angel Tree.

If you live outside Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland, please donate to your nearest food pantry. The one that supports your community. If you live around NWI Kolas Christian Bookstore in Highland, IN is acting as a drop-off point for us. We’re hoping to get more drop-offs for the future but this is our first. There will be a tote in there and when it’s full we’ll co0rdinate with Love Inc who works with local people in dire need and drop it off.

Sound awesome? I think so! In fact the 5 of us who’ve planned this think so and we’re supppppppper excited to give back.

Head on over to our Facebook event page and let us know how you did. We’d be really encouraged by stories or ideas.
