Good Giving Weekly

Greetings 29 Gifts Community,

OCTOBER GREAT GIVEAWAY

Kimberly Arms Shirk defied all odds as she survived being severely burned and nearly killed by 13,000 volt electrical line accident and today tells her story of determination and hope in "Remote Fears and Silver Linings." For your chance to win a copy of Kimberly’s book, comment on the Great Giveaways Discussion Board before October 28th. Winner will be announced on October 29th.


OCTOBER DAY OF GIVING

This month 29Gifters are encouraged to give to themselves. Sometimes the greatest gift you can bestow upon yourself is that of letting go. This month we encourage you to choose something in your life that is not good for you or causes undue stress. Create a mask that represents that hindrance and share your mask on our Day of Giving. Remove that mask and the negative element from your life and hopefully you will find that you have giving yourself more room for grace, positivity, and charity. Be ready to remove those masks on October 29th.


CALL FOR PERSONAL ESSAY SUBMISSIONS

Can't hide the awesomeness behind this month's Day of Giving!
Be sure to RSVP for the October 29th Day of Giving! Scare away insecurities and negativity from your life. Remove the masks that hide the real you. There is no greater treat than loving yourself enough to show the true you.

October Day of Giving - October 29th

There are many things in our lives that scare us. Often those fears cause us to mask our true selves. This month 29 Gifts encourages you to give the gift of kindness and acceptance to yourself.

Identify something that is hindering you. Create a mask or a symbol of that negative element in your life. On October 29th we encourage you to post a photo of your mask and share what it is that you will do to remove it from your life.

Be kind to yourself this month. Happy Giving!

Don’t Let Them Witness Failure

Tripping over your own feet. Accidentally shooting yourself with water at a water fountain. Noticing your zipper is unzipped or a shirt button is in the wrong hole. Forgetting someone’s names…
