Why 29 Gifts?

Give one thing away each day for 29 days. Share your stories about how it impacts your life to focus on giving. Join the 29-Day Giving Challenge community today.  

Why? Because to see the world change, we have to do something to change the world.  Plus, the best way to attract abundance into your life is to be in a perpetual state of giving and gratitude.  Be an important part of the global giving movement that inspires more generosity on our planet.

One month after her wedding day, thirty-three-year-old Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and the life she knew changed forever. Cami was soon in and out of L.A.’s emergency rooms with alarming frequency as she battled the neurological condition that left her barely able to walk and put enormous stress on her marriage. Each day brought new negative thoughts:

"I’m going to end up in a wheelchair... My life is over.

    Why did this have to happen to me?"

Then, as a remedy for her condition, Cami received an uncommon prescription from a friend, an African medicine woman named Mbali Creazzo.  The prescription was to give away 29 gifts in 29 days.

“By giving,” Mbali told her, “you are focusing on what you have to offer others, inviting more abundance into your life.”

The gifts, she said, could be anything, but their giving had to be both authentic and mindful. At least one gift needed to be something she felt was scarce in her life.

Cami was amazed by what unfolded during her month-long journey... you will be too.  Join us in the journey to change your world and in turn change the entire world.

Give one thing away, each day, for 29 days. Why?
Because to see your world change, you have to DO something to change your world.
Change the world by changing your own.

CAN’T DO IT ALONE?
Aren’t we all in it together?
Don’t we get to stand on the shoulders of giants?
Can you embrace your resources today?

I also want to post an amazing experience that happened on Friday, my younger son was sick so I had taken him to the doctors to get checked out. Long behold he had double ear infection!!YIKES so got prescribed antibiotics. Dropped the prescription of to CVS and decided to stop at McDonald's since he hadn't eaten for a day, I knew he will eat their fries! So we order our fries thru the drive thru, when we get to the window to pay, the cashier say's the lady in the car in front of you has already paid for you!! WHAAAAAA...thought in my brain,...29 gifts...as cami said its starting to come back to me..(mind you at this point I had been thinking about what I will do,,i still had a few days before I begin...) So keeping the book in mind, I asked the cashier about the car behind me, " how much is the bill for the car behind me?" Cashier: $ 4.00 Even" Well please put that on my card please.!!!!

It does feel good! So glad to be a part of this amazing network of people trying to do good and helping others!!!

Already a day late on my post for my 29 day challenge. But here goes, Yesterday I gave with love! i had a disagreement with the husband over the weekend, so I wasn't talking because I was still upset. Monday morning the husband said " what if this was the last day of our lives and you aren't talking with me?" so ALL of my anger melted away. I decided to give him some time. We have 2 kids under the age of 5. The husband has to go to school after work on Monday's and Wednesday's. So usually when he comes home I'm already exhausted and asleep. But last night I made sure to stay up, I cleaned the all of the kitchen (he usually does the dishes) I had already washed and put away all the laundry. The kids were in bed and I spend 3 hours talking with him which we never get to do these days. Quiet a good feeling!!!!
