Last week I shared with my subscribers this month’s TellMeMel theme, giveaways, and project. In case you missed my newsletter, here’s what’s happening all this month and how you can get involved! 

In the past few years throughout the month of November, I’ve shared on my blog and other social media channels #ThankfulNovember posts featuring things, people, places, etc that I am thankful for, cause ‘tis the season to give thanks and it’s a great way to check your gratitude/attitude by taking 30 days to reflect on these things.
This November, I’m changing it up and I’d love for you to join me in the #Serve150 #GiveThanks challenge. 
What exactly does #Serve150 mean?
#Serve150 is my latest project. By November 2015, it is my goal to volunteer 150 days. I’ve always wanted to be a professional volunteer – I’m not sure that title even exists, but regardless I’m going make it happen. And there’s no better time like the present to get started! 
Throughout the month of November I will be posting weekly, a few of my favorite things on my Facebook page and Instagram account, and giving them away to one (or two) lucky winners each week as a way to not only give thanks to all of you, but to also encourage you to participate in a small way in the #Serve150 project.
So, how do you win each week? 
It’s easy! Simply take a picture of you serving and/or giving in some way and post it, tag @melisaloo on Instagram/Twitter or Tell Me Mel on Facebook, and include the hashtag #Serve150 #GiveThanks #tellmemel
Each week I’ll select someone to feature and WIN! It doesn’t have to be some grandiose act of service – anything to help someone else, big or small is a step in the right direction will do. 

I’ll be posting the giveaway for the week each Wednesday and selecting a winner(s) every Sunday.  Until then, #GiveThanks, Serve on and Shine on.  And don’t forget to post all about it!

we unconsciously give other people
