Save 20USD for every completed item;
Donate (to a charity of my choice) 20USD for every incomplete item.

SO! The deal was that for every incomplete item, I would donate to a charity of my choice! I’ve been asking around, and I believed I’ve narrowed down the charity(s) that I would be donating too… More to come on that, in the near future :):)

Thank-you to ALL the people in my life and ALL the experiences I’ve had, especially over this past year. Here’s to more adventures and challenges to come!!Β Β  πŸ˜€
