    I’m excited for this one! I love your scavenger hunts – it gives purpose and meaning to my photo taking and keeps me aware of many things. (the blessings that surround me and the importance of Compassion’s ministry)

    How do you want us to tag our photos?

      It’s not necessary to tag them since the entry mechanism is the Rafflecopter widget. However, #onemealoneday would be a relevant tag if you want to use one.
