All participates will be paired with a +CHAARGie. This is your CHAARGie for the month to love + inspire. You will be creating a fun + foodie filled, holiday-esque, + of course CHAARG-ified package for her. Package deets below!
NUMBER ONE [+most important] -- GIVE POSITIVITY. When we give positivity, we unconsciously give other people persmission to do the same +that, my friends, is what this season is all about. Be positive + give positivity.
NUMBER TWO-- There must be at least one piece from each of the following themes + you must provide a handwritten card stating what theme the item belongs to + why you love it! We have provided some examples, but truly it’s up to you to get creative + most importantly — have fun with it! The spending limit for the package is $30.
SAVOR -- NOMS [need we say more?], your favorite snack or a staple ingredient to one of your most delicious recipes
SWEAT -- Your favorite fitness workout, headband, tank top, or water bottle
LIVE -- An inspiring + cute pinterest craft, a health magazine with your favorite article bookmarked, or simply something you can’t go a day without!
