If you’ve read Marieke Nijkamp’s This is Where it Ends, you’ll certainly have realised how it’s a harsh reminder that every moment counts when it comes to living your best life, being your best self, and treating others with love, compassion, and kindness. As such, Sourcebooks is inviting everyone to make this summer count by creating as many “moments” as possible in 54 days (June 15 to August 7).
Make sure to check out the challenge’s website for ideas on how to make your summer both kinder and unforgettable. And don’t forget to share your progress along the way by tagging #thisiswhereitends and #everymomentcounts! There’s the chance to win prizes, and who doesn’t like that?
