We here at the Reverb Culture community are launching a "Give Up Pick Up" campaign to set the tone and get into the penitential spirit of Lent. Mostly when Catholics think of Lent they think of giving up chocolate or some other luxury (beer). Giving something up is good, but it is also beneficial to add something or, say, "pick up" something for Lent such as a spiritual practice or devotion, increasing prayer time, or committing to a work of charity.
Here's a little teaser...
So we want to hear from you! What are you going to give up and pick up for Lent this year? Send us your video saying who you are, where you're from, and what you are giving up and picking up to email@example.com. We'll compile all the videos into a sweet montage for Lent, plus you'll get to hear all the unique ideas people have to get their penance on.
Follow this format when sending your video:
"Hello/Hey/Hi/Hola I am ____________ I'm from ____________
and I am giving up ______________ and picking up ___________ for Lent."
Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
***The video MUST be under 15 seconds.
