Okay. We know it's not even Halloween yet. But the holiday season is sneaky, and before you know it, it's January and you're wondering what the heck happened.
But 29 Gifts such a great idea for the holidays, or anytime, that we wanted to share it now so you could get a jump start on the giving. What is 29 Gifts? It's a giving challenge. Their mission statement: "Give one thing away each day for 29 days. Why? Because to see your world change, you have to DO something to change your world." Founder and multiple sclerosis sufferer Cami Walker came up with the idea for 29 Gifts during a particularly grueling night; after committing to giving away something (her first gift: A phone call to a friend) for 29 days, Cami found her life transformed. After inviting a few others to take the challenge, Cami's initial generosity has inspired thousands of people to give to friends and strangers all over the world. Whoa!
The possibilities are endless, and the 29 Gifts website has lots of ideas on how to give/who to give to. If you started now, you could have almost 29 gifts given away by Thanksgiving, and have something good to talk to your relatives about. Now that's a gift that keeps on giving!
