What are your plans today?

If you’re in the United States, you may be going to vote. But, what else is on your plate?

Are you going to the market to pick up groceries that won’t wait until the weekend?

Are you going out for lunch or dinner?

Are you planning to stop by your favorite coffee shop?

When you do, here’s your challenge:

Save your spare change from the day.

Instead of placing it in the pocket of your purse or trousers, how about donating it?

You could give it to someone on the street (without prejudging what they will do with the money. Once you’ve given it away, it’s up to them to make that choice.)

Or, you could donate it to a local charity.

You could even set aside your change from the rest of the week. Keep it in a cup in your kitchen or in your desk drawer. Then, the next time you pass that charity jar at the diner or someone on the street, you can have it all ready to give away.

If you’re like me, you like saving all your change and not spend it until your change jar is full.

But today – just for today – could you think about giving it away?

That’s your challenge.

Have fun with it!

As always, thanks for reading today’s challenge – and for forwarding, reposting, retweeting, stumbling and digging for me. I truly appreciate it!

Have a wonderful Election Day!
Remember, Service is the Action Form of Love!

Thanks for the post. For awhile there I was giving McDonalds gift certificates to the homeless because I didn't feel comfortable giving some of them cash. I think I'll use my change to start buying them again.
