The End of the "Do Something" Challenge

Today is the last day of the "Do Something" Challenge. (See previous posts HERE.) Sunday I was at my friend's house. We wrote encouraging verses and sayings on about 80 note cards. Then we went to the outlet mall and Walmart and we left the note cards on shelves in the stores. Yesterday, I left a candy bar in the mailbox for the mailman!

And then we went to Speech Therapy and brought homemade salsa and chips to the receptionist who was there.

Just Because the "Do Something" challenge is over, doesn't mean we still can't make a difference in the lives of others! Thank you for joining me in doing this "Do Something" challenge! Don't stop!

The past week and a half - "Do Something" Challenge

I have not posted in awhile and the "Do Something" challenge ends September 30. I am planing on doing something to end the challenge, but for right now, I will tell you what I have been doing! I have sent a few of "Happy" cards and birthday cards over the last week and a half and everyone was very "Happy"! On Monday, I gave a candy bar to the lady at the post office! And today I brought one to the man who works at the printing shop! Both were very thankful! It is so easy to buy a candy bar and drop it off somewhere in your local community! And so nice!

Walmart Quarters - "Do Something" Challenge

On Saturday, my friend Izzy, and I went to Walmart and placed quarters in the prize machines! We had 12 quarters to start with. Her and I each spent one on the candy machine and left the candy in the box for someone else! Then we hid the 10 quarters in other prize machines! We had fun and I have pictures! Go hide quarters! :-)

This is the candy machine we left the candy in.

This is a Winnie the Pooh Bear airplane ride.

Our Trip - "Do Something" Challenge

Last Wednesday we rented a motor home and left for a history trip around Wisconsin. We stopped at the Wade House, Old World Wisconsin, Cave of the Mounds, Devils Lake, Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, Caddie Woodlawn's house, N.E.W Zoo, and Door County! Lots of fun and history! Also great places to perform random acts of kindness! :-) At Old World Wisconsin, I left nine green envelopes with tracts in nine random places for people to find! That was fun to do! Then Sunday night and Monday morning I put happy notes in public spots for everyone to see! Sorry... I forget to take pictures... But I do have a few pictures from Cave of the Mounds. We got home yesterday afternoon and I have tons of laundry to do! :-(

Movie Night Packages - "Do Something" Challenge

I made three movie night packages for different people. The first one was for friends at church. They have three older kids. The second one was for the receptionist at the chiropractor. And the third one, I have no idea yet! :-) I added a few more treats based on how many people were in the family. Feel free to add what ever you want to make your personalized! :-) (I put everything into THESE bags off amazon.)

The post-it note on the money says,
"Please rent a movie of your choice!"

Timber Rattler Game - "Do Something" Challenge

Friday night we went to a Timber Rattler game as a church! It was a lot of fun! But one of the most fun things was handing out $5 bills! (This was not my idea so I can not take credit.) My youth group leader, Jake, got the idea to get $5 bills out of our youth group bank account and hand them out to random people at the game! He gave the job to me and my two friends! Many people were very thankful and others were speechless! We added a note with the bills that said "Please enjoy a snack on Cross Training youth group!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances,
for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."


Yesterday I left quarters in the candy machines!!!!!!!!
