Hello! Week 3 of the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge is all about kids. This week is a bit different. In addition to the kids in our lives, we are going to help out two kids who really need smiles.
I strongly believe the best way to teach kindness is to give kindness. Actions speak louder than words… especially with our youth.
So Week 3 (November 16-22) will focus on sharing any kind of handmade kindness with kids. Or create something with a child and pass that along to someone! Also, you can participate in our special Card Shower…
CARD SHOWER FOR KIDS
I am also hosting a Card Shower for two kids battling cancer. This is an opportunity to send encouraging and happy cards to these brave souls and their families. I hope you can participate! It is easy. You can find all of the details HERE. (It was too much to include in this post.)
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Participating is easy. Simply make something with a child and/or GIVE something to a child. It can be a card, sweet treat, handwritten note, a picture – anything made by the hand, from the heart counts. Simple!
Any child of any age counts! This includes young folks in your family, local schools, churches, shelters, hospitals, etc. I also encourage you to get your kids or any young folks in your life involved in participating this week. I think you will all love it! Also – remember – I will be back soon with info on sending cards to some kids facing challenges. You can do that too.
And since kindness is contagious, I also encourage you to share whatever you create/give on your blogs, social media, etc… and even here on my blog. Let’s inspire each other! Here are three options:
- Post a photo of whatever you create on social media with the hashtag #sharehandmadekindness.
- Link a project you created to this post using the link-up tool below. (At the end of the post – click “Add a Link.”)
- Leave a comment on this post telling what you created. (This is great if you don’t do social media or have a blog. Easy peasy!)
You are welcome to do none of these, one of these, two of these, or all three! But for each you do, you will be eligible for a prize…
To celebrate this week’s challenge, I have THREE great prizes to give away.
This week’s prizes include:
- A $100 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp
- A $50 Prize Pack from Tim Holtz
- A $25 Gift Certificate to Lawn Fawn
These three folks were very awesome to offer these prizes. Please consider checking out their products. They make our industry great!
I will give one prize to someone who I see participating on social media with the hashtag #sharehandmadekindness. I will give another prize to someone who links their project below. And a third prize will be to someone who leaves a comment on this post letting us know of their participation. All will be randomly picked on 11/23/15. (International folks are eligible, too!)
If for some reason you can’t participate, no worries. I will continue to have other random giveaways throughout the week!
Are you playing along in tee challenge? If so, feel free to grab a badge HERE to share on your blog or social media.
LINK UP YOUR PROJECT
As I mentioned, you are welcome to link here to share your project to inspire others. This is optional! It is easy – you can watch THIS video if you need some help.
