30-Day Giving Challenge 2017 - Week 3

"Still from earth to God eternal
sacrifice of praise be done,
high above all praises praising
for the gift of Christ his Son."
- Joachim Neander

Tuesday - dropped food off at a local food shelf
Wednesday - helped with the children's ministry at my church
Thursday - donated to Room to Read
Friday - helped at a local library
Saturday - donated to support a hospital in Bangladesh
Sunday - helped with the music ministry at my church
Monday - donated to help a teacher and her classroom

30-Day Giving Challenge 2017

Since 2010, I have participated in the 30-Day Giving Challenge during the month of November. The premise is rather simple: each day of November be a blessing to those around you by giving each day. Since my fall has been rather busy, I've taken the time to plan out my giving for this year. I enjoy this part of my year, and I'm excited to see what happens during November.

I have put together a Pinterest board with some of my ideas. Check it out here if you'd like to see some of my plans.

As in the past, I will be blogging about my experience.

Also, I will be participating in the challenge by trying to make each of my "giving" acts anonymous. And thus, my posts might at times be a bit vague in order to keep things anonymous.

Come join me in the adventure!
