Item 72: In Chengdu, China, kung fu tea (long spout, performance tea pouring) is popular. But it was just a matter of time before it was appropriated by other cultures. Show us a barista performing the Mengding Mountain 18 Forms of Dragon Flying Postures Kung Fu Tea pour at a Starbucks.

Team Brown(Trench)Coats

Item 194: Not all angels are 100% sweet and not all demons are all bad. Dress up as a demon and hand out messages of hope and positivity for the future to commuters at a busy bus, train, or subway station.

Team Goats!Goats!Goats!

Comment: This was so much fun to make! It's going to be a great Halloween costume for one of my children too. The magnetic yo-yo actually functions and when you move your head forward and back it sets it in motion. Also, the clear lego parts can be used to adapt the entire look in the future or add on to as necessary to incorporate new space technology as it emerges.

Item 93: A Mom-and-Pop shop that sells Moms and Pops. (New and used.) Show a young child making a purchase.


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: My stepdad was recently diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer. He rapidly developed symptoms, including partial blindness and paralysis on the left side of his body. My mom has been by his side helping him navigate these changes and providing support.
