Give up solid food. Waaaaaaaah (embrace the blended mush).
Give up your hair – let a child give you a haircut, shave it all off, dye it an ‘interesting’ colour.
Give up speaking – go silent or sing instead for the 125 hours. Cut out key words from your vocab (like ‘yes’ and ‘no’), or speak another language.
Give up furniture – work, eat, sleep on the floor! No beds, tables, seats (except the loo of course!)
Give up speaking without dancing – in other words, dance your socks off every time you speak! (one of our favourites from the ‘Give it up’ archive).
Give up one of your 5 senses – wear a blindfold, a nose peg, ear plugs, gardening gloves, eat only bland food. Or do a different one each day for the 5 day challenge.
Give up wearing ‘normal’ clothes – wear something.. well.. humiliating each day and flaunt it with plenty of photos and videos shared online. A few of our team are wearing banana costumes. You could let your sponsors decide?
Give up your dignity – broadcast live each day of the 125 hours doing different challenges set by your sponsors, like singing a classic ballad at the top of your lungs, dancing full pelt to whatever songs they request, pouring a bucket of cold water over you.
Of course you can also give up something a little less extreme. Perhaps there’s a habit you’re trying to break and this is just the excuse you need? Or you could do with a detox? Caffeine, smoking, alcohol, swearing, TV, sugar. You could add a donation every time you slip up, or boost your sponsorship with any savings you’ve made throughout the 125 hours.
Whatever you decide, stay home, stay safe, and GO FOR IT!!
