But wait, why should thousands of people spend a week doing
all of the crazy stuff some guy from the CW (Misha Collins) asks us to do?
I’ll tell you why this week is worth-while.
Every year we change the world for the better
- Thousands of pints of blood donated
- Families in need are helped
- We make new friends from all over the world
- We step out of our comfort zones
- And seriously, who doesn’t want to wear a bikini
made out of tea bags?
This year my team of 15 amazing folks from all over the
world did some downright CRAZY stuff but we also learned about each other while
doing our part to make the world a better place. Here are some of my highlights from the week:
|Thanks to Breezeway Bubbles Scuba, Peter was able to take a spin class in full scuba gear.|
|A pillow fight with more than 10 people in pajamas. Adding logs? Awesome.|
|Toast for Underpants. Bonus points for jam. Life lesson learned: ensure toast has cooled before putting between legs.|
|Another life lesson: Toast underpants (when secured with duct tape) hurt like NOTHING ELSE to remove. |
|Donate blood with a friend wearing something festive on your head. Done.|
|We made hundreds of people hug for the "Hug the World" Campaign. GISHWHES broke the world record of the MOST photos of people hugging in one place!|
|I cannot tell you how much fun it was to spend a day asking people to hold signs and hug. Hugs are amazing!|
So... life is short. Do something to get OUT of your comfort zone and make the world a better place!
