February's Challenge was inspired by 

 

READY TO GET STARTED? HERE'S HOW...

TIP 1: While decorating your messages, talk about any plans (or resolutions) you and your family may have for the upcoming year.

TIP 2: Discuss different reactions people may have when they find your note in their grocery bag.

 

DOCUMENT YOUR EXPERIENCES.

Print off a copy of our journaling page. Discuss the questions on the front, then draw a picture of you and your family completing the Challenge on the back.

Please help us inspire more families to make memories while making a difference by sharing photos of your completing this Challenge with your friends and family.
