December Reader DONATION Challenge

A few months ago I wrote about our family's attempts to live simply and our interest in the concept of minimalism, which is to rid your life of excess and clutter so that you can lead a less stressful, more meaningful life.

At that time I had challenged myself to clean out several areas of our home that were disorganized and full of stuff we didn't need, like our out of control tupperware cabinet and my mess of a jewelry collection. I'm proud to report that both are still in great shape and I don't miss any of the stuff I got rid of.

There are still plenty more rooms, closets, cabinets, and drawers that I'd like to tackle. And with it being the season of giving, Dina and I agreed this was the perfect time to clean, organize, and purge all of our excess stuff so we created the Donate Challege! Join us in donating your unwanted and excess items to a non-profit, a charity, or a thrift store like Goodwill, and be entered to win a $25 VISA GIFT CARD!

  • Donate your stuff
  • Post pictures on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter. If your account is public, be sure to tag Something to be Found and Dina's Days and use the hashtag #dkDonateChallenge 
  • If your account is private or you don't use social media, simply email one of us your picture(s). 
  • Gain additional entries by tagging your friends and encouraging them to participate and donate.
  • The winner will be drawn and announced on Wednesday December 31st.
Let the donating begin!


  1. I have a constant donation pile!

    1. My entire basement is one HUGE donation pile right now. Eeek!

  2. Such a lovely post Katie! I love this idea!!

  3. This post is really helpful for some1 who has been having difficulties with this situation. I have looked at a number of resources but to no avail. Intellux I will continue reading and learning here in the hope of ultimately getting past this.I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.

  4. There could be contributors regret (not certain if your philanthropy was the "right" one to provide for) or they could be drawn closer by another charitable (taking future donations from your not-for-profit).Donation letter

  5. In the event that lone web based raising support were as straightforward as adding a give catch to your website! However, it's most certainly not. Donation letter
