New for 2015

40acts for everyone

everyone can do Lent generously. Last year you told us that you loved 40acts but that on some days – for different reasons – you just found it too difficult to join in. So this year we'll send you a choice: discover three different ways to complete each daily act:

GREEN : these acts take five minutes or less, and will usually be free (or really cheap!) to complete.

YELLOW: a little more challenging than the green acts, but these won’t take more than fifteen minutes, or a couple of £/$/€.

RED: for those who love to push themselves to extravagance or those who have done 40acts before – take your generosity habit to the next level.

So what’s the challenge?

40 Days of Lent. 40 Reflections. 40 Simple Acts of Generosity
