The Say YES Challenge // 12.2015
Kick off the holiday season of giving with the #SayYes campaign and challenging you to finish off the year with gratitude and humility.
As we look back on the challenges and triumphs of 2015, the #SayYes campaign is helping you put it all into perspective. The holidays are known as the most giving time of year but it’s also the perfect time to not only reflect on the incredible gifts we already have but to look ahead at how we can give and be our best selves.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
On Monday Dec. 14th receive your first challenge of the #SayYes campaign.
Keep your friends and family up-to-date by sharing your progress on social media using #SayYes.
Week 1: The first phase of our the YES campaign: REFLECTION.
Reflecting allows us to look at our past experiences through the lens of our present moment and helps us define our vision and way forward. Once you have a clear vision, decision making becomes more deliberate.
The Task: Pick a word from the list below and spend this week REFLECTING on it through the steps described below. Then share the corresponding graphic attached to this email on Instagram with a brief description of what you discovered. Use #ThePEGEffect and #SayYes
Spend a few minutes each morning REFLECTING or meditating how you want this word to influence your life for the week. In order to do this effectively we offer these PEG Effect Tips:
1. Write a short affirmation that will act as the guide during your REFLECTION exercise
2. Make it Personal, Positive, Present, Vivid and Emotional
Ex: It is deeply satisfying that I have abundance flowing freely yet actively through every aspect of my life.
3. Use this sentence to serve as your mantra or point of focus. If you find your mind drifting, gently restate your sentence to yourself.
Week 2: the second phase of the YES Campaign: INSPIRATION.
The Task: Find whatever inspires you and share that with us via Instagram. Use #ThePEGEffect and #SayYes
- The Source of inspiration
- Why it’s inspiring to you
- How it has impacted you
The final phase of the YES Campaign is here, and it’s all about: GIVING. Join the efforts of our members and donate to The PEG Effect or purchase a Goodie Bag Mobile (GBM).
GBM is simply a bag containing 30-days worth of hygienic necessities–toothbrush, toothpaste, wipes, deodorant, etc., that is kept in your car or with you while on the go, and can easily be handed to someone in need.
2 Types of GBMs tailored to the specific needs of men and women:
Blue: for male
Pink: for female
How To Donate:
Donate on our Crowdrise page
Get a Goodie Bag Mobile delivered in the mail
Give the SEALED Goodie Bag Mobile to whomever is in need.
The GBM is a reciprocal gift so please be sure NOT to open the bag. We want to insure the integrity of the materials inside.
And of course, share your experience of passing out the bags on Instagram. Use #GoodieBagMobile, #ThePEGEffect and #SayYes
