August Challenge: Donate

Okay, so lately my husband and I have been getting caught up and carried away with life.  We have let our home become a disaster zone, have been going out way too much and have not gotten back into working out since our New York trip.  Last week a situation occurred that caused me to think about our life here and what is going on.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE going out with friends and love eating out places, but I feel like we have been so blessed and have been being a bit wasteful, even though we are surrounded by so much poverty and people in need.  This month, I am challenging myself and who ever else wants to participate to a donation challenge.  Once a week in the month of August donate something in order to benefit others, post it on your blog Monday every week and leave a comment so we can get inspired by each other's generosity.   This first week, I will be cleaning out our dresser and closet and donating clothes, books, and household items we no longer need.

  1. That is an awesome idea! My husband and I have been having the same problem letting the clutter build up and not getting a good grasp on it. This is definitely something I'm up for doing!


  2. such a great idea! I would love to donate but I'll keep it at money. My room is not that crowded because I still live at home but once living on my own I will keep this generous idea in mind for sure! <3

  3. This is a great idea! It is a little like a win win situation: you get a cleaner, more uncluttered house while helping people in need.


I read every single comment! Thanks for sharing. =)
