Organize a Generosity Scavenger Hunt

In Springfield, Missouri, United States, one individual ignited a treasure hunt of kindness, uniting the community through a Generosity Scavenger Hunt. As participants embarked on this thrilling quest, they were on the lookout for hidden tins, each containing a Springfield sticker, a $100 surprise, and a heartfelt congratulatory note.

This creative initiative sparks imagination and highlights the power of generosity. Organizers don’t need to leave cash, but could use the opportunity to promote uplifting messages or leave small donated items from local businesses. The Hide and Seek for Generosity becomes a delightful adventure that showcases the spirit of giving and fosters community connection.
