Item 219: Caregivers of those with life-threatening illnesses or chronic health conditions sacrifice a lot but are often forgotten. Let's fix that. Make buddy care-bags: one bag for the caregiver, and one for the person they support. Contact a hospital, hospice, care facility, caregiver or person with a life-threatening illness or chronic condition to find out what would be most helpful to include in the bags, then donate them directly or through a caregiving organization near you. Submit a photo of the care bags -- the recipients need not be depicted. Tell us the story of the person you helped in the comments.

Comment: These were made for a woman named Laura and her partner Lynn (caregiver). I was fortunate enough to meet them and talk about what they needed most. In March 2014 Laura was hospitalized for a blood clot and through testing discovered she had Chromic Lymphocytic Leukemia, her second cancer diagnosis. She has Hodgkin's disease when she was 29 and battled it with 6 months of chemo. She was on Watch and Wait for 2 years until she progressed to the point of needing treatment. 5 years later her body stopped responding to medication and she seeked out a specialist at Duke Cancer Center. The doctor at Duke stated that her CLL is in an aggressive state which is why the medications stooped working. She is currently in search for a Stem Cell Donor Match and will ideally begin the transplant in September. The process will take 3 months in which she will relocate to Duke.



Item 201: From Spiderman's web shooters to Batman's ability to brood and spend money, if comic books have taught us anything, it's that what makes us unique is what makes us super. But not everyone has internalized the message. Without being self-deprecating, identify one trait, offbeat skill, or feature about yourself that, properly applied, could be the origin of your new superperson identity. It can't be an existing superhero in culture. Create a poster that showcases your superperson identity and what your flaw or feature-turned-superpower is. You may use Photoshop for this one.

Comment: Apparently, I make the best tea. May as well use my powers for the greater good!



Item 161: Thirsty for a challenge? Build a puzzle jug. Show you building it, then someone else figuring it out and successfully drinking from it.

Item 37: I keep losing my stuff. Invent a Misha-proof AirPod-finding solution that is NOT a cord, because that defeats the entire point of AirPods - and one that works when they're not charged. Show it in use.

Comment: We dub it the 'Misha Monkey' or 'Pod Primate'.



Item 111: SIDE-BY-SIDE. COLLABORATIVE. Swap-meet day! Use the GISH app to coordinate with at least 5 other Gishers in your area to meet up and hold a yard sale. Except, this is not a yard-sale, it’s a yard-giveaway: the GISH Community Bazaar. Bring as many items as you can bear to part with and set up shop. And remember, no money must change hands and no bartering! All items must be gifted to passers-by and everything must go!

Comment: So much fun! I had a great time meeting some amazing people and making children and other passerby’s smile as they collected treasures from our tables.
