Daymaker Challenge Day 30 Old Fashioned Help! by Dahna Weber, Deb Gillespie and Liam Weber-Nudel

Help an elder cross the street and ask them how they are.  Simple and timeless.  While they may not need your help they sure do enjoy the company! 

P.S. Do it with your kids.    They love doing good deeds.

DAYMAKER CHALLENGE DAY 11- BAGGING IT! BY DEB GILLESPIE AND DAHNA WEBER

I love this one! So you’re at the grocery store and see you an elderly woman or man struggling to carry their grocery bag out of the market and to their car. They are usually with cane in one hand and bag in the other. Sometimes they are pushing their walker, struggling to carry that bag to the car. Here’s your chance to step in and give them a little hand. I know that the elderly are generally pretty proud folks, but it would be nice if we could at least offer them a hand with their bags. I used to nudge my older son or daughter to offer help. Now they do it on their own. Let’s be kind to our elders and help them out when ever we see the opportunity.

Daymaker Challenge Day 2- 'Tis The Season by Deb Gillespie and Dahna Weber

Here is our suggestion for the day.  Remember….we’d love to hear your suggestions and that the objective is not necessarily to do the one we are suggesting.  Just do one thing that will make someone’s day.

 Make a pit stop at a local elderly residence or elderly neighbors and see if there is any way you can help with the holiday decorating.  Take the kids with you….that way you make a whole bunch of people’s day! If you have extra time (Ha! Ha!) you can have the kids make something you can bring along.  By Deb Gillespie and Dahna Weber
