Counting Down...

I've got about 8 more days until I start my month of rice which I mentioned earlier!  I'm kind of excited.  I know that's kind of weird, but I am very interested in what it's like for 50% of the world.

If you don't want to read my whole last post (I don't blame you), then I'll explain:

50% of the world's people only receive rice to eat for dinner.  It kind of blows my mind. 

So I wanted to see what it was like.  I'm starting on March 8th (I know, it's random.  My husband's birthday is tomorrow and we're going to celebrate this weekend, so I needed to push it back.  The good thing about it: Lent starts next Wednesday, so it might become my Lent deal and I'll just extend it to Easter, if I can make it). 

Are you interested in joining? 

If a month is a bit much, you could do a week.  If a week is too much, you could do a day.  I'm going to try and take pictures of my bowl of rice because I think it sounds like fun.  I'll try and make it more fun than it sounds.

  1. I love that you're taking pictures to make it fun. That's what our giving is all about! We have to be cheerful, or it counts for nothing. It's all about attitude, and I have to say...I love yours!

  2. Cool project! I love rice so I probably was part of that 50% for a while (at least by choice!) anyway.... I'm looking forward to see your pics! oh! and yes... you definitely got what I meant! :)

  3. Interesting post! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the mention.
