Why 40acts

Every generous act matters.

Every moment of generosity moves your community forward, whether an inch or a mile.
Imagine if you took the plunge and dedicated each of the next 40 days to generosity, no backing down, even when it gets tiring.
Pledge today to living generously for the next 40 days and watch as you and your community transform in Christ.
Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us that we could live eternally with Him. Let that sink in.
This is the ultimate gift, the ultimate act of generosity.
God called us to live like Him, walking in the same way in which He walked.
Biblical generosity is more than just being kind; it is a true heart expression of the way Christ first loved us. (Credit: 40acts)

40acts FAQs

What is 40acts?

40acts is a daily generosity challenge that runs throughout the period of Lent, created by the charity Stewardship. During 2019, 100,000+ individuals and thousands of groups took the 40acts challenge, creating a wave of more than 4million generous acts in 180 countries around the world.

If I sign up, what will I receive?

40activists (you!) receive a daily email throughout Lent (not including Sundays!), with a generosity challenge (an ‘act’) and short Bible-based blog sent straight to your inbox. Each act is designed to sharpen your awareness and give you practical ways to stretch your faith as well as your generosity, with three challenge levels.

What happens if I can’t do the act?

The challenge lasts for seven weeks – it’s a test of endurance and focus as much as anything else! Try to build 40acts into your day right from the start, and pace yourself. We know there will be days when completing the act – for whatever reason – will be difficult. Please don’t feel demoralized if that happens to you.
The challenge can be adapted to use as you like – and we’ve tried to provide even more options with the traffic light system so that it’s easier to participate even on the tough days.

We know that being a part of a group during this challenge can give you new perspectives and renewed strength by sharing your journeys with one another. We’ve created an EPC 40acts Challenge Facebook group. You’ll receive an invitation to join when you sign up for the challenge.
