No one has everything. But everyone has something! This month we’re challenging you to share what you do have with your neighbors!
(Miss the background on what the Love Your Hood Challenge is all about? Check it out here.)
Share what you have
Whether it’s time, a talent, or even some extra cash, make a point of sharing something you have with your neighbors. Feeling like none of those are feasible to give right now? Start with a smile or a kind word. Even just those two things can go a long way in making someone’s day a bit brighter! Here are some ideas to get you going:
Share a talent.
Are you good at home repair projects? Fixing bikes? Painting? IT issues? Making a delicious home-cooked meal? Offer one of these to a neighbor that could benefit.
Share your time.
Know a neighbor that could use some company? What about another parent that could use a little break from their kids? A couple that just moved in that doesn’t know anyone yet? Challenge yourself to reach out to them and spend some time together.
Share your stuff.
Have a shed full of garden tools? Have books others might enjoy reading? Have 8,000,000 LEGO pieces a neighbor’s kid might like to play with? How about a cup of sugar? Allow what you’ve been blessed with to bless those around you.
Share your cash.
Anyone around you having a rough time with some extra or unknown expenses? It can be really fun to find ways to help them anonymously with their needs.
