Cami Walker’s 29-Day Giving Challenge

Cami Walker, owner of the business consulting firm Creative Urge, has created a 29-Day Giving Challenge that encourages people to give things/time/help away for 29 consecutive days.

Commit to give away one item a day for 29 days in a row and share how the experience impacts your life. Why? Because to see the world change, we have to do something to change the world.

I think it’s a fun idea and may participate by finding one thing in my home to give away every day for a month. I’m certain I have at least 29 things that can find a better home through Goodwill. I probably won’t create a page on the challenge website, however, as the stories are being collected for a book and documentary project that doesn’t much interest me.

If you’re looking for a reason to get rid of clutter, consider using the 29-Day Giving Challenge as motivation.

    I love this idea. My family will be moving later in the year, so I’ve actually set myself the task to go through closets, drawers, the basement, etc. and donate/recycle something every single day (or 7 items/week) until we move.

    translation: “I have a lot of ugly gifts to give away, but I don’t want the givers to know.” Right? It’s why I didn’t let my family come to my garage sale.

    The challenge is things/time/help.

    I’ve already cleared out a lot of my stuff. I give time. I proofread at Distributed Proofreaders , making free ebooks. Just about every day for the last five years. You can do as little as a page a day if that’s all the time you have.

    Its a great idea- I have been doing well with keeping clutter at bay but the last 2 weeks have been really hard work. I am starting tomorrow!

    Thanks so much for supporting the challenge by spreading the word. I hope you and some of your readers decide to join in the giving fun.

    You can sign up at http://www.29gifts.org, but journal privately or link to your blog from your profile if you don’t want you stories considered for the book. It really helps the cause if you sign up so we have a count of how many people are giving. Our initial goal is 2,000 committed givers by July.

    Thanks again for the mention. Plus I got to discover your blog, which I love.
