So last lent, I riffed on Flip Caderao’s Lenten 40 day giveaway and did a 50 day giveaway for Lent. I’ve decided to do the same thing this year as I really enjoyed doing that last year.
I’ve decided to make it harder and simply do it locally here in Buffalo—but I will also be spending time this Lent in Hawaii for a week so that might make it even more difficult. I mean, I may just have to give something away to some random strangers.
The reflections will be a mix of both video and writing. Harkening the themes of prayer, fasting and almsgiving for Lent. I also can’t buy anything new. I have to give away something I already own or have in my power to possess. I can however, do a task as well. For example, I can make a friend dinner or give someone a day to spend time with.
So starting tomorrow–when we will begin Lent with Ash Wednesday–you too, Buffalonians may be the winner of a free gift.
