Hello! Week 4 of the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge is all about strangers. Those we don’t know well or at all… but who could likely use a smile…
So Week 4 (November 23-29) will focus on sharing any kind of handmade kindness with strangers. Leave a note on someone’s windshield. Pay for the person behind you in a drive-through and give them a card. Send a card to a favorite blogger. (Yes, that isn’t exactly a stranger, but you likely haven’t met!) Drop off a kind note to the mail lady who was nice to you last time you were there. Anyone! Notes or simple cards are best for this challenge.
As I mentioned last week, I am also hosting a Card Shower for two kids battling cancer. We are still collecting cards for them – and since we don’t know these folks well – any cards you send count for this week’s challenge too! It is easy. You can find all of the details HERE. Just an option for you.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Participating is easy. Simply make something and give it. It can be a card, sweet treat, handwritten note – anything made by the hand, from the heart counts. Easy!
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 great 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 $25 Gift Certificate to Lawn Fawn
- A $25 Gift Certificate to Pink & Main
- A $60 Gift Certificate to Organize More
- A $25 Gift Certificate Honey Bee Stamps
These five incredible companies were very awesome to offer these prizes. Please consider checking out their products. These are some of the kindest people in the industry!
I will give one prize to someone who I see participating on social media with the hashtag #sharehandmadekindness. I will give a prize to TWO folks who link their project below. And another prize will be for TWO people who leaves a comment on this post letting me know of their participation. All will be randomly picked on 11/30/15. (International folks are eligible, too!)
If for some reason you can’t participate, no worries. I will still have other random giveaways throughout the week!
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.
