DAY 26 – Tell someone what the 26 Day Challenge meant to you and encourage them to take the challenge!

Congratulations, you did it! We hope that taking part in the 26 Day Challenge has helped you to reflect on your daily life, and the ways it is both similar and different from life for those in other places around the world. And perhaps this challenge sparked some new insights for you about the struggles and joys of urban slum communities like Kibera.

Our hope is that the experiences and reflections you’ve had over the last 25 days have helped illuminate for you the importance of community. Community is more than a nice idea. Communities are where change happens.

What’s Next?  Please help us spread the word. Post about your experiences on Facebook and Twitter. Encourage your friends to take the challenge.  Continue to invest in the people, communities, and causes that mean something to you.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

    We did it!! Our family completed the 26 day challenge and will be forever changed. You can read about my experience on my blog

    I send buckets of gratitude to CFK for creating an experience that goes beyond just talking about these issues. Spending only a day is a small sacrifice to hopefully create an awareness of how so many are living around the world. We can make a difference by giving our voice and supporting programs like CFK!!

    I have learned so many new ideas and ways to live each and every day. By involving the community in our everyday living and coming together to get things accomplished makes us stronger not only as a community but as a country. If everyone were to take a second to do just a few of the challenges they may see how others live and that may make them stop and think about their own lives. I have told many people about this 26 day challenge and they were a bit confused at first. So then I explained to them what it was about and why we were doing it, and then they seemed to understand and sound interested themselves. I know for me and completing these challenges it has made me think about my live and make me strong as a person so that I can give that to my own community. Thank you for the opportunity Carolina for Kibera has given to me and so many others.

    I hope everyone picks this one. I think I have not only told one person about the 26 day Challenge but I have told many. I think if we all keep spreading the word then others will become aware of what is going on in others places in the world as well and maybe in the end reach out to try and help in whatever way possible. I think by taking a moment to look at how others live we can stop and say that as Americans we do have it nice and easy even if we are poor or living without certain things. After doing these challenges it sure has made me stop to look at the big picture and not just the little things in life.

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
