Third Annual 10 Day Give Starts Friday
Friday is the first day of October but it is also the first day of the “10 Day Give.” If you are not familiar with it, the 10 Day Give is a challenge conceived by Bob over at ChristianPF.com. Its purpose is summed up succinctly as a way to “get our minds off of ourselves and start thinking about how we can help others.”
If you read the title of the post, you know that this is the third annual 10 Day Give…so if you haven’t done it before, this is the year! And if you have participated previously, keep the momentum going! I was a bystander the first year but did participate last year…only I didn’t do a great job of actually helping others. I didn’t “actively participate” all 10 days so this year I’m trying to do a better job.
So, I guess I will say that this post serves as my challenge to you (and even more so to me) to participate in this year’s event. So what does that all mean? Well, head on over to the 10 day give site to get more info and sign up but it’s pretty much what you already think it is. For 10 days starting October 1st, try to give something to someone each day (that’s it? yep, that’s it…pretty simple). It could be money but it doesn’t have to be. It could be a gift but it doesn’t have to be. Sure, you could buy someone a coffee or lunch but you could also give someone a gift for no reason or do something for someone or spend your time with someone. Get creative…get inspired…get motivated…and get going (No, actually, wait until Friday…just kidding).
First stop: head over to ChristianPF and find out more information about the 10 Day Give and add your name to the list of participants.
PS: Most of this post was actually written to inspire and motivate myself…but if inspires and motivates anyone else then all the better!
