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 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.

Item 110 – Horrendous String Quartet

A string quartet in formal black attire, playing horrendously in a public area (such as a mall). The sign next to them reads, “NEED LESSONS- PLEASE HELP.” Any funds collected should be donated to a local children’s music program. (Note: Please remember your Commandments & ensure busking is legal wherever you set up.)

Item 96 – Let It Go

There’s something that happened in the past that haunts you. It’s time to light that sucker on fire and let it go. Write down your memory and wrap it in newspaper. Tape 20 matchsticks all around it and place it on a stack of wood. Light it and let it go in a fireplace, firepit or fire-safe area. Let’s see a picture of you and the burning item, or just the big burn. Caption your image however you wish.

Item 14 – Puffy Socks

Tom Cruise is getting up there in years— and at advanced ages, sliding on a slippery floor in your socks gives a whole new meaning to the term, “Risky Business.” But luckily, Gishers are here to help! Your mission possible: Use puffy paint to add tread to the bottoms of socks so seniors don’t slide their way into an injury at care facilities. Deliver them and show us a photo of your creation along with a gift recipient.
