I am not in school, thankfully. Nor do I have young humans in school. But the stores are filled with school supplies and people acting extra crazy. And the summer hiatus for many of my recurrent meetings has ended (much sadness here). And really I'm just making up reasons because I feel like running another kindness challenge.

To enter: Add an item to this geeklist, perform an act of kindness each day for a week, and keep track of what you do each day. It is possible to do this 4 times before the challenge ends. If you choose to participate more than once, create a new geeklist item for each week. Each completed week (geeklist item) counts as one entry for the giveaway.

Your daily acts can be small or large - check out the previous challenges in Hedgehog kindness challenge subscription list for some ideas.

Prizes:
Grand prize winner: One person will be chosen as the "grand prize" winner (likely via a die roll). If the person lives in the United States (all 50 states) or Puerto Rico, they can choose to receive a game costing up to $40 from Amazon for me to send them or a Gamer Glass dragon of their color choice. Elsewhere can choose to receive a gift certificate of the equivalent of $40 for a local retailer (online or FLGS, as long as I can easily purchase it), or a Gamer Glass dragon of their choice. Free shipping worldwide is included in the prize.

Additionally, the winner will get to choose one of the following charities to receive a $150 donation:
charity:water
Ali Forney LGBT kids shelter
• Winner's local food bank
• Winner's local homeless shelter

Second prize: The second prize winner will win 100 geekgold,, courtesy of Nicolai Broen Thorning, and gets to choose one of the above charities to receive a $100 donation.

Third prize: The third prize winner will win 50 geekgold, courtesy of Nicolai Broen Thorning, and gets to choose one of the above charities to receive a $50 donation.

Three different people will be chosen for the prizes.

Finally, if you participate and do not yet own Microbadge: “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” ― Amelia Earhart, I will gift you 8gg to purchase it and wear it during this month.

Deadline to enter: Wednesday, September 4th, 2019, at 4pm EST. Your geeklist item must have 7 days with acts of kindness listed by this time to count.
