In some circumstances, blind or visually impaired people can sometimes use a little assistance from sighted people. If you’re a sighted person, sign up for the Be My Eyes app and submit a photo with the app open on your phone. We trust you that you will actually use it and not just download it. Don’t practice bad karma.
Plant the seeds of change to end food waste. Grow something from your food scraps or waste in your kitchen. Show us you planting it, then if there is any sprout or progress by the end of the week, show that, too. Oh- and you should upcycle something that’s not typically a planter as your pot (an old shoe, a disused jewelry box, etc.) Post an image of your planter on social media tagged #WeSowWeGrow!
It’s the #PassTheBallot Challenge! Get at least 5 Americans to pledge to vote via mail-in ballot and if possible in their location, request a mail-in or absentee ballot, then take a video passing a sign that says ‘I WILL VOTE’ between them. (Similarly, if you are not in the USA, and your country also does voter registration, do the same.) Add upbeat music and post on social media tagged #PassTheBallotChallenge and #GISH, then send US the original video.
A penny for your thoughts! Coin a phrase. In as beautiful a display as is humanly possible when you’re limited to your home, “write” out the next optimistic aphorism or mantra everyone will be saying after the pandemic. Your message should be spelled out entirely in coins.

Last quarantine hunt we had people making signs to show appreciation for first responders and medical professionals. This Hunt, we would like to turn our attention to showing support to people of color whose lives are impacted or even lost because of the institutional racism in the American criminal justice system. Make a sign showing your solidarity for Black Lives Matter or in memory of George Floyd or other people of color impacted by racism and post it in your window or in your front yard.
Create a portrait of one of the far too many black people who have been hurt or killed by racial inequality in America. It must be in black and white — no color and no shades of grey. Post it on social media along with a short description of who this person was and how their life was taken. Tag it #NotOneMore & #BlackLivesMatter. Upload your artwork (not a screenshot of your social media post) to the GISH website.

Since we can no longer give each other big, warm, cuddly hugs, it’s time we invent the official hug or hug routine of social distancing. Props, noises, physical impossibiliites… they are all welcome.
