If you’ve been reading Saving & Giving for a while, you’re probably familiar with the 30-Day Giving Challenge. If you’re new, let me introduce you to one of my all-time favorite yearly events.
The 30 Day Giving Challenge was started by my friend Alyssa from Kingdom First Mom in 2009. She had a vision for a giving project, so she issued a challenge. Participants were encouraged to spend 30 days giving. This was no ordinary giving. Participants were asked to document their giving in a journal for 30 days. The giving could be big or small, time or money, whatever God prompted each one to do each day.
I participated on my own in 2009 and was changed. It was amazing to see God open my eyes to the simple giving that can be done each day if we just look for the opportunities. I was honored to become part of Alyssa’s team for the 2010 30-Day Giving Challenge, and I’m thrilled to be taking part again this year.
How You Can Get Involved
If you’re interested in taking on the challenge of giving in some way each day for 30 days, it’s almost time to begin. The 30-Day Giving Challenge takes place each November. We’ll be kicking things off right here on Tuesday, November 1.
If you want to start thinking about ways that you (and your family!) can get involved, check out the ideas on the 30-Day Giving Challenge site’s Get Involved page. There’s a planning calendar and some ways that you can share your giving stories throughout the month.
So grab a journal, start talking to your family, and get ready to be blessed as we GIVE.
If you’re a blogger, there will be an opportunity for you to link up your own post about the 30-Day Giving Challenge right here on Tuesday. Maybe you could post a little bit about the challenge so that your readers can start thinking about ways that they can give. Bloggers can find additional information about weekly link-up opportunities on the Blogger Info page of the 30-Day Giving Challenge website. Feel free to grab this button for your site too.
