Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to do something for Earth Day.  I thought it would be fun to switch things up a bit and hear from someone else.  I have a niece who is really conscious of being green.  For some reason, she just really gets it and finds a lot of joy in taking care of the earth.  I love that about her.  So here's a little report on the challenge from her.  Here's an old picture of her taking care of Rex.

"Hi!  My name is Breckyn and I'm going to tell you about some of the things I've done for Earth Day.  Once I picked up garbage around a forest by my house.  There's a lot of garbage in the forest.  We took bags and walked around.  It was fun.  My mom also bought a water purifier to purify our water so we could use less bottled water.  Everyone can work on recycling.  You can use a a milk jug to make a mobile for your room.  You can reuse styrofoam cups and make flowers as decorations.  All these things help our earth stay clean for people in the future.  I'm ten and if I can do something to help the earth, YOU can too." - Breckyn

Isn't it awesome that she's so young and so passionate about being green?  She rocks. 
This week's challenge is to share your talent with someone else.  If you're good at cooking, make someone dinner.  If you're good at photography, offer to take pictures for someone.  If you're good at teaching, teach someone a skill you have.  And if you think you're not good at much - think harder.  We all have something to offer and something to give.  Your contribution could be exactly what someone else needs.  There's a plethora of possibilities.
Alright, how did Earth Day go for you?  Did you get to do anything?  I can't wait to hear about it.  Thanks for reading.
