Description

Arrange your young people into groups of two or three, and challenge them to bless members of their community, by spending £5 in the most creative and beneficial ways.  Use this as an opportunity to direct any thankfulness, from the beneficiaries of the the actions, to God.

Consider:


  • Asking God to guide and lead those taking part, so that they know who to help and how.

  • Buy cards to thank people for the things that they do for the community.

  • Giving away 'Love Heart' sweets to let people know that they are loved.

  • Buying £1 umbrellas for those who are getting wet when it is raining.

  • Buying a meal for a homeless person.

  • Completing a full risk assessment and putting clear boundaries in place for the young people.

  • Approaching the church to back this event financially.

  • Getting the young people to do a fundraising event to raise the money to be given away.

Rationale

An opportunity for young people to creatively bless others, and experience taking part in simple, street based acts of kindness.

Outcome

To express love to others through small gifts.
