- Use a sign above ground to point to the ‘hidden treasure’.
- Don’t destroy property when digging, be responsible with picking a place.
- TIP: Place the meaningful item in a plastic bag or something to keep it waterproof (if needed).
- TIP: You may want to take a photo of the place + sign and share it on social media so it can start a local treasure hunt 😉
The inspiration behind this challenge
Generally, we as people, are quick to take things on face value. We see something, and draw conclusions. This isn’t just true for people’s appearances, but even for food, books, opportunities and so on. But did you know, first appearances aren’t always right 😛
Some things could actually add a lot of value and meaning to our lives, but only after we dig a little. Try a bit harder, persevere longer, explore it further.
When coming up with this challenge, there was actually a Bible verse that came to mind, Jesus talking: “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”.
Just imagine the surprise and memorable experience you will give someone when doing this challenge. And hopefully more than that, imagine that what you chose to bury for them, actually adds value and meaning to their life! That’d be so cool!
