Have you heard of the 29 Day Giving Challenge? This unique project challenges people to give one thing away each day for 29 days.
The web site says:
29 Gifts is a global giving movement with more than 13,700 members in 42 countries. Our collective mission at 29 Gifts is to revive the giving spirit in the world. We change our lives—and change the world—one gift at a time.
GIVE A LITTLE EACH DAY. MAKE A BIG IMPACT.
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 today. Why? Because to see our world change, we have to do something to change our 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.
HOW IT WORKS:
Sign up and then give away 29 gifts in 29 days. Your 29 Gifts can be anything given to anyone… money, food, old sweaters, smiles, your time, kind words or thoughts. You can start your own personal 29-Day Giving Challenge at any time—there’s no official begin or end date. To complete the challenge, submit a story, post a piece of your original artwork, create a short film or write a song. Tell us about your favorite gives and the impact it made on your life to focus on giving.

The web site is filled with blogs, forums, galleries, a boutique, news and more.
The 29 Day Giving Challenge is already inherently green, but it would be easy to take it a step further and make a real environmental difference with it too — each day choose a new activity like picking up litter in a Mankato park, planting a tree, feeding the birds, starting a compost pile, volunteering at an area nature center, and so on.
