It’s Day 7 of the “Pay it Forward 2 Communities” #PiF2C 12-day challenge!
Today we have two different challenges you can choose from. Don’t forget to catch our previous blogs to read more information about the challenge.
Today your challenge is to be crafty! Make something that will make someone ELSE smile. Does your guardian have a favourite animal? Does your neighbour love flowers? Make them something that would make them smile out of materials you can find around your home – don’t forget to check with your guardian that it’s okay to use them first👏
Adults, we challenge you to see how much, over this week, you can save from making small changes in your life. After the week has finished, you can donate this money to any local community organisation you think needs it. Check out this and this for more info on how you can save!
Don’t have an organisation in mind? Cash for Kids helps to support children, and throughout Christmas run a collection of new gifts and donations for them. You can read more and donate here.
Cash For Kids is best known for their annual Mission Christmas appeal which ensures that thousands of children and teenagers in the south have a present to open on Christmas Day. Last year, 32,094 children and teenagers had presents to open!
Here is the 12-day checklist for you to print. To take part all you have to do is complete the challenge of the day and (if you can) take a photo and post it online – don’t forget to tag us and the partnering organisation!
We will be posting the challenges daily on our social media and blog so feel free to follow us using any of these links.
