Item 213 – FOG Awards

It’s time for the first-ever FOG Awards! Find another team that has done any Item (that’s been allowed to be posted on social media) that you particularly admire and award them a Fellowship of Outstanding Gishing Award, complete with a virtual trophy or certificate. Post it on social media and tell them what you admire & tag them. You may do as many as you like, but submit a screenshot of just one of these.

Item 186 – GISH U

CALLING ALL GISHERS: You’re enrolled in GISH U! On Day 1 of the Hunt, everyone on your team should identify a skill you’ve always meant to learn but have NEVER tried. During the course of the Hunt, you will take one meaningful step toward learning that chosen skill. Submit a collage showing you all attempting your newfound skills.

Item 168 – Parking Fairy

Work with a child under 12 years-old to write notes of love and encouragement for motorists. Place them in official-looking envelopes marked “GISH Dept. of Parking Salutations” and put them on the windshields of cars together. Show us your little parking fairies at work or with one of their notes.

Item 144 – Keep Magic Alive

Out there somewhere, there’s a special child who is just about to give up on magic. Don’t let it happen! Find out something they secretly (or not-so-secretly) believe in and help bring it to life for them. Whether it’s a wizard, a pirate ship, a space adventure, a fairy princess, or more, help keep magic alive!

Item 127 – Little Free Library

Create a Little Free Library (https://littlefreelibrary.org/) or Little Free Pantry (http://www.littlefreepantry.org/) in your community. One catch: include a bookmark in every book explaining why you included it & something spoiler-free you love about that book, and each shelf-stable food item you stock in the pantry must include a note with a recipe and words of encouragement. – Inspired by April B.

Item 125 – Compliment Truck

In Los Angeles, food trucks are really popular, but I don’t think your mobile shopping purchases should be limited to food. Set up a “food truck” for your neighborhood that offers Compliments, Encouragement, Friendship, Education, Literacy, or something else that feeds the soul. Decorate your van or truck with signage accordingly.
