A great way to spend time with your family is to work together to help others. Today's challenge is to get the whole family involved in an act of kindness!

There are a bunch of things your family can do to help others.

  • Box up clothes, toys, or household items you are no longer using and donate them to local churches, charities, or shelters.
  • Collect can goods for a nearby food bank.  
  • Gather old blankets and towels and donate them to an animal shelter
  • Do a walkathon to help raise money for a cause.
  • Help out a neighbor in need.


What do you usually do with your unwanted clothes, toys, or household items? How do you teach your kids to help people in need? What other acts of kindness can you think of that a family can do together?

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Restyle Your Life Challenge yet, you can do so here!

We donate all of the things we no longer need to Goodwill or a woman's and children shelter. I want my children to know that giving to others is way better than selling unwanted things for a small profit.

We donate gently used books to the library. If they end up on the shelf, in the "free" bin or on the "for sale" rack, at least someone is getting use out of them.

Clothes & toys go to Good Will or to friends who can/will use them.

I either give them away to friends or people who need them or donate them. I have a couple bags of old clothes that I need to drop off at the thrift store.
