My wicked cool Lent idea.

So, last night, I randomly looked at my calendar, and realized that LENT is soon! I lay in bed pondering, "What will I give up?" etc.
As I lay in bed, it hit me.

I read in a magazine about a woman who gave a dollar for each comment she got to charity.

Well, I don't have that much money, but for Lent, I'm doing something similar.

For each comment I get, I will donate a random COIN to charity. I'm collecting all the change I have.

And there's ONE rule: You can't comment randomly saying something like, "Hi." or just like that spam. It has to have SOMETHING to do with my blog or the post. And you can't repeatedly comment. I'm really not that rich, guys. o.O

Anyway, this will start on ASH WEDNESDAY and I will keep count of how much money I get on the blog. I'm bugging my sister to give me her change, too. she's a sweetie and said, "Yes." :D

this is such an awesome way to focus on the real purpose of Lent- focusing on God and doing work to spread the news about Jesus- it's not just that he died; it's WHY he died and also that he lives!

This is really cool what you're doing, Katie! For Lent I'm saying the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day. God bless you always, and I hope your day is going super well! :-)
