Task 30: Wrap Up… Volunteer

Well, this is it for another year of 30 Days, 30 Ways! Thanks for being apart of the 10th anniversary of this challenge. As a final flashback to our challenge over the years, I just knew I had to share a challenge that was part of our 2013 challenge. That year we asked one day, for you to share with us the most unusual item in your emergency kit, and share with us that items uses. When one of the responses came in, I must admit, I first turned a little red, and was thinking, oh no, we are gonna have to remove this response. But as I continued to read their post, I realized this item was legit, and they were serious with the uses for it in their kit. They listed at least 10 uses this item had. That response, went viral in our challenge! We got a lot of responses, and news coverage for the challenge. But the part that sticks out in my memory the most, was a response from one particular woman. She admitted to being a little older, and she shared that after reading that one response to our challenge, she went out and bought a box of this particular item for her kit. She admitted, she had never purchased this item before in her life. That’s when I knew this challenge was making a difference and why I put the effort into bringing you this preparedness challenge each and every year! You may be wondering what that item was… well that surprising item back in 2013 that we are still talking about was a box of condoms.
