Charlie & Pippi's Easter Challenge

Charlie & Pippi's Easter Challenge

We live a good life and are blessed with what we have but we don't want to take that for granted and we want to be able to give something back.

We tried to think of challenges which would help us feel what others might feel and so imagined what it would be like to walk in other people's footsteps.

Here are our Easter challenges:

  1. Sleeping on the floor - as we might not be able to take part in the big sleep out for a while, we thought sleeping on the floor of our bedroom would be a good way to imagine how it feels to sleep on the streets.

  2. Busking - this puts us outside of our comfort zone, doing something which might be scary.

  3. Dance-a-thon - this was a challenge on having stamina and keeping going even though you might be tired.

  4. Board games marathon - we talked about things we've enjoyed doing in lockdown and if we had to spend a day doing one thing then this would be it.

  5. Walk 10 miles - the average homeless person walks 10 miles per day. We are going to try to see what that feels like.

  6. Code word - sometimes you are at the mercy of others and this task involves having to respond when someone says a code word. Ours will be bananas and will mean we have to do 10 star jumps.

  7. Cycle for 20km - again this is a challenge in stamina and not giving up.

  8. Create an obstacle course and complete it 100 times in a day. This is to show that sometimes a day in the life of someone who is homeless might be repetitive and challenging. By having to complete an obstacle course 100 times in a day we will have to think about how long it will take.

  9. Feed a family for a fiver - We are going to feed four of us for £5 for lunch and tea. We will only be drinking water and will take £5 to the supermarket to see what we can cook. This will help us to see the challenges faced by people living in poverty.

  10. Map challenge - a homeless person might arrive in a place and not know where anything is. This is an opportunity to learn what things might be like to be in a new place and try to locate water and food. It will also be a chance to learn some life skills like reading the bus timetable, using a map and finding key places from instructions.

  11. Memorise a poem - Reading and performing are fun things to do and keep our minds busy and creative. Again this is a personal challenge to achieve this within a day ready for a performance to family in the evening via zoom.

  12. 1 day doing everything by myself - how does it feel to have to rely on myself for everything?

  13. Barefoot beach walk - a chance to appreciate where we live and to know what it's like to walk a good distance without shoes.

  14. Make packed lunches for friends and family - we're going to try to raise some extra funds by selling packed lunches (sandwiches, fruit, cake, crisps, veg) and we will be asking our neighbours for food donations which are greatly needed by the Stonepillow team for supporting their clients.
