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

It’s time for our weekly Charity Challenge. Every Tuesday morning (yuppers it’s Weds!)I’ll issue a challenge for the week. Your mission if you choose to accept is simply to go do it!

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……

Sixth Challenge: BBQ Sauce

We’re wanting to fill local food pantries with all kinds of goodies. It’s heart wrenching to think that people who 5 years ago would never have needed support find themselves in line for bread. Yesterday the Charity Challenge Moms and I were talking about how even though they have nothing, we still want to give them the same things we have.

This week BBQ sauce is everywhere crazy cheap (It’s Memorial Day so make sure you stock up for the rest of the year as it will get higher quick!) We decided it’d be a great challenge as it’s under a buck at most places and has good shelf life. So while you’re out shopping please go grab a bottle.

Although it’s not just BBQ sauce, Meijer has the best deal on it around here:
Sweet Baby Rays Marinade or Dipping Sauce 5/$5.00
use $1/1 MQ from 5/22SS

Jewel – Sweet Baby Ray’s $1
Ultra + Strack’s – Sweet Baby Ray’s under $1 and starting tomorrow Open Pit at Strack’s is $.58

Last week I challenged everyone to donate puzzles and legos and I’d love to hear stories!

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

Thanks to you we gave all this!

If you live outside Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland, please donate to your nearest food pantry. I know they can use this. The food pantry 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. I need these as soon as possible so please run there!

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
