Nice Bucket Challenge

Last night a recieved notice that I had been challenged to a “Nice Bucket Challenge” by a facebook friend. I was immediately charged to get this done today. The video below is our journey and some glimpses of what took place. I challege ANYONE that reads this to accept the challenge too. Find someone in need. Deliver something to a hospital. Surprise a neighbor. You have 24 hours. Go. Do. #LoveDoes #BeBrave.

Now the results of those I challenged are starting to come back. First off, Russell Hawkins and his family created some Nice Buckets and distributed them to those in need. He spent the day engaging homeless people with his son right by his side. While what they gave is sure to help those they met, the time spent with his son teaching about caring for those in need is worth so much more. Well done my friend!

Next up is Curt Harding. He created a Nice Bucket for children in a local hospital. The Nice Bucket has no rules and love knows no boundaries. Where can you take one today?

Laura created two Nice Buckets for a local school in need of games and supplies for rainy and cold days. Great ideas. There are endless ways and places to spread this message.

Who else accepts the challenge? More to come….

One thought on “Nice Bucket Challenge

  1. I enjoyed the coefrennce call discussion. I would like to add something that others may find helpful, who tend to eat out frequently due to busy schedules, like me. I have a smartphone and dowloaded the app called Calorie Counter. When we go out to a chain restaurant, I generally can look up most items that I’m thinking about ordering to get nutritional info, such as calories, fat, carbs, sugar, protein and fiber based on a serving size. Although the app doesn’t list ingredients in the food, it’s still a good guide to help with meal selection. For example, a cheese quesadilla appetizer from a local restaurant may have 1300 calories and that’s just an appetizer! My husband use to occasionally order that as his main dinner selection, but he doesn’t order it anymore since I told him how many calories it has. Unfortunately my husband isn’t as health conscious as I am, but it’s a wonderful surprise to know that he will now ask me to look up the nutritional info on an item if it isn’t published on the menu before he decides what to order. More & more restaurants are including some nutritional info on their menus, which is also great. I’m sure there’s other phone apps that provide similar information and for those who don’t have a smart phone, you can usually find nutritional info on the restaurant’s website. Let me know if anyone has other recommendations for nutritional apps/websites.
