Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. I don't normally participate in Lent, mostly because I don't think about it. But this year - New Year. New You. - I'm doing it. For the next 40 days, I'm giving up Coke; it will be difficult but so worth it. Which I guess is kind of the point.
Also, as part of the Lenton season, I'm participating in Project H20. I've ordered a kit for 10 people. Basically, we'll pick a day (or maybe 2) and for that entire day, we'll drink nothing but water. Then, we'll send the money we would have spent on drinks that day to Project H20 to help provide clean drinking water to people in need. Pretty neat, huh? Let me know if you want to do it too :)
