Yesterday was Day 1 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge. When I arrived at the office, I dropped off a box of baby clothes for my colleague who’s having a baby boy in a few months (it’s her first child). I got a very nice email thanking me for leaving her more money to buy diapers.
I also picked up a small bottle of carbonated nigori sake for Marc. Nigori is his favorite alcoholic drink and I thought he’d enjoy this unusual variety (he thought it was just okay – but it’s the thought that counts!).
Today, Day 2, I passed on some additional baby-related items to one of the boys’ daycare teachers. She’s expecting a baby girl in a few months so she doesn’t want any of the boys’ clothes, but she’s happily accepted an assortment of baby gear from us.
My thoughts so far: Giving is fun, but to give something every day, I’m going to have to plan ahead!
