Our 40-Day Schedule
April 26-June 4, 2013
40-Days of Creativity
Creativity is a beautiful thing! It’s all around us, everywhere we go. But we take it for granted way too often, and some even believe that they themselves aren’t creative. That’s a shame!
For this challenge, we will be spending time doing creative things like writing songs or poems, painting, drawing, crafting, scrapbooking (yeah, that one is totally on Laura…), cooking new exotic meals… the sky is the limit!
For things that we actually create, we’ll be posting them up on the website for people to buy with a donation to our Acts of Kindness challenge.
June 5-July 14, 2013
40-Days of Gratefulness
We have great lives… and by “we”, we’re not talking specifically about ourselves. EVERYONE has a great life, if you step back and really look at it. Sure, if we compare ourselves to others our lives my not stack up the same, but if you look at it in it’s truest form, each new day is a chance to really EXPERIENCE life. That’s amazing!!
For this challenge, we will select 40 things/places/people that we are genuinely grateful for and will write a blog post about them and reach out in various ways to express our gratitude.
July 15-August 23, 2013
Can we go 40 days without eating….? There’s only one way to find out!!
Okay, okay, okay, so we’re not actually forgoing food… instead, we will enter a 40-day juice fast. For more behind the inspiration for this challenge, visit http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com

40-Days of Service
The greatest thing about “giving” is that it doesn’t always mean giving of your money and resources. In fact, one of the most selfless things that you can do is give up of your time and body.
For this challenge, we will give up of ourselves and our time volunteering at youth organizations, clubs, nursing homes, charities, soup kitchens, etc.
October 2-November 10, 2013
40-Days of Positivity
There’s too much negative in the world. At times, it’s so easy to get sucked into the darkness and loose our ability to see the world for what it really is: BEAUTIFUL.
For this challenge, we will only speak positively about each other and those around us. Anytime that we speak negatively about anyone or any place, we must immediately put $1 in a jar to donate to our Acts of Kindness Challenge. This one sounds easier than it really is!!
November 11-December 20, 2013
Acts of Kindness
For this 40-day challenge, we’ll be reaching out to others to do something kind for them. This could be as little as holding doors open, returning carts at the grocery, and complimenting them, to as big as helping to buy groceries, providing Thanksgiving dinner to those less fortunate, or buying Christmas gifts for those in need.
Last year we did AMAZING things with this challenge, and we’re expecting to be even bigger this year!
December 21, 2013-January 29, 2014
40-Days of Awareness
There are so many organizations around the world that everyone knows about… and some of them probably shouldn’t even exist. But how about the small, local organizations that lack a million-dollar CEO and massive marketing budget? They’re still doing great things, but often go unnoticed.
For this challenge, we will be spending 40-days trying to bring awareness to a couple local organizations and the need for them in the community. The actual organizations are TBA.
January 30-March 10, 2014
FAN VOTED CHALLENGE!!
We have no idea what this challenge will be…. because YOU will be the ones to decide it!
Leading up to this challenge, we will gather suggestions from the TN40D Nation for crazy challenges. We will then choose our top 5 or 10 favorite and offer them the TN40D Nation to vote on! Oh no! What are we getting ourselves into!?
March 11-April 21, 2014
The Bucket List Challenge
For our final 40-day challenge, we will try to cross as many items off of our bucket lists as possible! Our official bucket lists will be posted online closer to this challenge.
