The 2013 Summer Bucket List Challenge is here!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2013 Summer Bucket List Challenge has officially started! We are SO SO excited for the challenge this year! You asked, we listened! This year, in addition to weekly giveaways, we’ve got even more summer fun planned! We have an awesome Facebook community where you can share bucket list ideas, photos, and stories. We’ve got a summer bucket list inspiration Pinterest board. We’ve got our Summer Bucket List Adventure Guide and so much more!

Last year, we had over 2,600 families join us in creating an awesome and memorable summer for their family! This year, we hope to get 10,000 families participating in the Summer Bucket List Challenge! Here’s how YOU can help!

1. Sign up for the challenge! Whether you’ve participated in the past or this is your first year, signing up for the Challenge is SO important! We love that we’re inspiring other families to make the most of their summer, but the coolest part is that every time you share your summer bucket list with friends in real life or through social media, YOU are inspiring other families to make the most of their summer too! That’s pretty awesome, right?!

2. Share this video and the Challenge with everyone you know! Post it to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and your blog. We’re using hashtag #happyfamilysummer across all social media platforms. Feel free to grab the button image at the bottom of this post and use it anywhere you’d like!

3. Make your list and get started! We plan on having an incredible summer and we hope you’ll join us!

Hello I like the simple things your site is doing. I am single with no wife or kids so I appreciate your offer. Thanks not quite there yet.

How would I do that? I would like the best summer ever. But how it seems like mission impossible.

@MikeKolan Attitude, brother. What do you love to do? Be intentional in who you spend your time with and the things you do with them. Get outside, learn something new you've always wanted to learn, build something, paint, travel. Think about what you love to do, and do more of it. That's it.
