So excited to meet some of the other members of the Team! :D I sent five today...will do more every day!

No matter how slow you're going, you're still lapping everyone on the couch :-)

YOU have to MAKE it happen.

Progress NOT perfection.

There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs.

It looks like you got your answer - looks like your page is public now.

When I set up a challenge I have to put a number in there. I put 20,000. Then learned that I cannot edit that afterwards. So when the real goal was established at 2,000 - more realistic for our team - the headline thing near the red bar still says 20,000.

The goals are always best guesstime - when looking at participation, I figured that about 75 people could send two goodies a day half the days of the week. That would put us at hitting 2,000. At this point we have two members who have sent over 200 goodies each, but a majority of folks are still under sending 10. (Updated TeamGoodies will be posted tomorrow.)

Woo hoo to you, Russell! Love the enthusiasm. If we start burning toward 2,000 I will definitely increase it and send out a special stretchh challenge. But right now we're at about halfway through the month, and just under halfway to goal - so it seems reasonable. I don't want to make it too much of a stretch and turn people off.

For April can we shower our team members with 2,000 SparkGoodies? You bet we can! Let's be each others' biggest cheerleaders along this journey and reward each other for positive achievements, reaching milestones, or to simply let someone else know that we're thinking of them, wishing them well, and that their choices on this journey matter to us. The possibilities are endless.

For April, let's commit to showering our team with a total of 2,000 SparkGoodies. Imagine all the warm and fuzzy feelings we can give! Who knows, your SparkGoodie could be the gift that gives someone the oomph to get through a tough day and stay committed to this new way of life. Wouldn't that be amazing for both of you?

Go beyond your comfort zone! Reach out to someone new to you! Not sure who to send a SparkGoodie to? Check out our daily huddle, Roll Call thread (General Discussion forum), Introduce Yourself threads, or March Mileage (Challenge forum) for posts from multiple team members.

Stand proud and announce to us that you have committed to showering your fellow team members with SparkGoodies this month by responding to our April Showers Roll Call thread!

Team SparkGoodies will be awarded along the way for participation!

Remember, if your page is set to private team members will be unable to send you SparkGoodies unless they are SparkFriends with you.

To join/track this challenge: on our team page, scroll to bottom of page (where the red bars for the team goals are.) The April Showers 2,000 SparkGoodies goal is listed. Click "Join Goal" and confirm. Now, when you go to your "Other Goals" page this challenge is listed for you to track each day. Another way to track each day is to simply scroll to the bottom of the team page and click "Track Goal" (it will take you to your "Other Goals" page.)

To send a SparkGoodie, click on the person's profile picture or where it says "my Sparkpage." That takes you to their SparkPage. Scroll down. Just above the Goodies they already have you'll see "Give _______ a Goodie" Click on that and then choose the Goodie you want to send. (Remember to write a note so they know why you're sending them a Goodie.)

Lost track of how many Goodies you've sent to team members? To look at a list of the SparkGoodies you have purchased: go to your own page and click on the "Awards" tab, you will see a link at the bottom of the Goodies section that will show you the goodies you've purchased.

Please feel free to join this challenge at any time and retroactively add your month's total to your "Other Goals" tracking page.
