The $5 ChallengeWe wrapped up our Christmas season with the Mealiff family gathering yesterday. During the festivities Gramma Alice came around to each of her grandkids in attendance and presented an envelope. She explained that she was not giving presents to the grandkids this year (who can blame her? She has 13 grandchildren, 10 of which are over the age of 25), but instead is offering this challenge:
Each envelope contains $5. We are to use our five dollars to make the world a better place. She offered suggestions of buying seeds to plant a tree, donating to a cause, or giving to the homeless/less fortunate. Sometime in the next year we are each to contact Gramma with a progress report of what we have done to make the world a better place.
So I'm on a mission to come up with something great. I'm hoping to make Gramma Alice proud and I'm open to suggestions.
~ She also mentioned that next year, there will likely be, a bigger and more challenging challenge!
