CHRISTMAS 'TIME GIVING' CHALLENGE.
GIVE UP YOUR SPARE TIME TO SOMEONE WHO NEEDS IT MORE!
Christmas is all about giving right? But not all of us have a money tree in the backyard to buy a bazillion presents with, nor do many of us want or need a whole lot more clutter to find homes for, or to break!
So, I challenge you, to GIFT YOUR SPARE TIME.
It's so easy, all you do is think of someone you know or may not even know and offer to help them. It could be something as simple as bringing in their recycling bins at the end of the day, taking their mail to their front door, offering to take their dog for a walk, offering to read a child a book, playing a board game with someone who could do with a friend, to baking something delicious, or cooking a double batch and dropping it on someone who needs a hug's doorstep!
You could offer to babysit someones children while they get their christmas shopping done (they might even offer right back!) The options are ENDLESS! Anything you can think of, large or small counts. You could make a lonely neighbour a cup of tea and sit down for 20 mins for a chat, you might make their week! Any random act of kindness suffices...BUT...no money is to swap hands.
Embrace that Christmas spirit and get giving and spreading the love.
The rules are - first and foremost you keep yourself safe at all times, and second of all you are not allowed to get paid for the work/time given.

KINDNESS STARTS WITH YOU.
END RESULT - A ripple effect begins, where people offer their time to help others when and however they can. You ENJOY it, you ENJOY giving and see the joy it gives to everyone involved.
SECOND END RESULT...SANTA might just turn up on some awesome persons doorstep with some awesome gifts for a deserving soul.
