It's a bit challenging to complete a 29-day challenge while on bed rest. Still, I'm looking for creative ways to give without having to get up (out of bed, that is). I'm pushing past the physical constraints & emotional turmoil (an interesting mix of hope, fear, & boredom) that define bed rest to rise to the challenge.
Yesterday, I found this web site, http://www.care2.com/click-to-donate/ where you can click to donate to various charities. For the past two days, I have contributed to freekibble.com, a site where you answer a trivia question and food is donated to animal shelters. I was always a sucker for useless facts, starting with my Quiz Bowl days in high school (read: nerd alert) so this daily trivia giving game is perfect for me.
Today, I "friended" a lady on one of my pregnancy boards who was having problems with her insurance company. It felt good & empowering to be able to use my insurance experience to help her come up with some possible solutions to her dilemma. My body may be weak, but my mind remains strong, goshdarnit.
