Echo Challenge Day #7

Today is Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day! If you don’t know what it is, the Attack on Pearl Harbor was when the Japanese attacked an US naval base located in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. More than 2,400 US citizens died. This attack cause the United States to join World War II.

I challenge you to take a minute to remember those who died on this day, and be grateful for everything you have in your life.

Echo Challenge Day #5

Today is World Soil Day! When I read this, I was thinking, “Wait, there’s a day dedicated to soil?” The explanation I got is that soil is an important part of our ecosystem because it helps grow the bottom parts of the food chain (plants). Without soil, we wouldn’t be able to live.

So today, I challenge you to take a walk outside and notice the soil. Take a minute to be grateful for soil. Educate yourself about soil and research about its importance.

Echo Challenge Day #4

Guess what? Today is World Wildlife Conservation Day. It’s time to help all the animals in the world!

Today, I challenge you to do either of the following:

Donate to WWF (World Wildlife Fund) – http://www.worldwildlife.org/

(Or any other charity you know that helps wildlife.)

or

Go to your local petting zoo or take a trip to a national park.

or

Talk to at least one person about World Wildlife Day. Avoid using plastic bags today. Many plastic bags are disposed in the wrong way, and animals often die from choking on them.

Echo Challenge Day #3

In response to Daily Post’s “Construct

Did you know that today is Make a Gift Day? It is a perfect day for challenge number three. (It requires making and constructing.)

Today I challenge you to make a gift for someone special. Tell that person that you are grateful for all that they did for you.

P.S. (I’m going to make a wreath for a friend that just bought a new house. What are you going to make?)

Echo Challenge Day #2

Apparently, many occupations have an appreciation day, but did you know that today is Bartender Appreciation Day? I have never heard of it before.

For those of you who plan to go to happy hour today, I challenge you to thank your bartender. For people who are too young to drink or teetotalers like me, I came up with something creative. When you go out for your morning coffee, or stop at a restaurant or diner to eat, remember to thank the person who is serving you. Don’t forget to smile. 🙂

Echo Challenge Day #1

Today is World AIDS Day, so I thought I would challenge you to donate to a charity that fights HIV/AIDS.

Here are a few charities you can donate to:

Elton John AIDS Foundation – http://ejaf.org/

There are two links you can also go to: http://newyork.ejaf.org/ or http://london.ejaf.org/

AIDS United – https://www.aidsunited.org/

American Foundation For Children With AIDS – http://www.afcaids.org/

For those who love to shop, you can buy gifts on red.org and the proceeds will help fight AIDS.

These are just my suggestions. If you have a charity in mind that also contributes to this cause or a charity that you like, please feel free to donate!

Echoing Deeds

In response to Daily Post’s “Echo

It’s almost Christmas! No matter if that’s not your holiday, or if you don’t celebrate at all, this season’s a time to give. When you do something good, that deed will echo back to you.

Today is when people start counting down the twenty-five days of Christmas. So I have a challenge for all of you reading this.

Fruit Punch

The pleasant crisp taste of apple juice,

mixed in with the sweet and sour delight of the grapes,

blended with the tart sugariness of the pineapple juice,

combined with bitter lemonade countering the sweetness,

added with water that reduced the sugary flavor of the mix

and last but not least…

there’s calcium lactate gluconate, Niacin acid, hydrochloride, and more acid.

It’s sad I can’t describe their flavor.
