Fasting is cleansing…

…and the rewards are unexpected benefits, if not at least tremendously rejuvenating. There are enough documentations on fasting, so we won’t get into it here. Just google it, if you’re curious >

The idea for this Be More! Initiative™ was inspired by another social media post. In that post you’ll learn about a slightly different version of fasting, discovered and shared by Sergio Palacio on March 4, 2019.

Find ONE item each day for the 40 days of Lent, and donate them to a local charity. Do we need to mention that the donations should include only items that are in good condition and intact?

Rid yourself of excess while doing something good.

Do you really need to make 99 cents for a plate, that you now have to pack and carry to the post office? The idea of trying to sell certain things online turns up to be a waste of time and listing fees in many cases anyhow, so you’re doing yourself a favor when you give them away to those who can use them.

The original facebook post by

This collage below gets the idea across. Your donated items should not be discards, but perfectly good wares that will make another person happy to receive them.

Now let’s see if this idea will get enough people to act, so it can make a difference for a local charity or family.

And as with everything else, this activity qualifies you to earn KR Points.

As easy as 1-2-3 for you:
  Here’s how to do it:
  • Collect your 40 items of household goods or non-perishable food.
  • Take a photo before you donate your box of items, then take them to the charity or food pantry. If at all possible, take a picture when you hand it over, or after they received it. Download and print the FREE COMMUNITY STAR AWARD!
  • Upload your entry and photos. See the LINKS IN PINK below.

♦ Download and print a FREE COMMUNITY STAR AWARD for you to keep as Souvenir!

Important, please read:

Only use intact household items or non-perishable foods. Do not use products with an expired “Use By” date. Do not donate foods directly to individuals or families, unless you know them well and personally. If you’re not sure, bring them to a local charity, church or food bank.

Or try this EASY version:
If you care about those who harvest our food, donate your box to the Farmworker Council >

Give only what you would like to receive

Choose one food item that you really like. Don’t eat it during this 40-day challenge, but instead donate 40 of this same food item to your favorite charity at the end of Lent. Our charity of choice is the Farmworker Council of Palm Beach County. 

These people are great, and they help those who harvest our food. If you’re farther away and outside of Palm Beach County, FL, just bring it to your local church, shelter or food pantry.
