Lemn Sissay's Challenges

Day 16 – I Care


It’s Saturday, and we’re already halfway through January! Today’s challenge is from Tash.

“I’m 27 years old and originally from Wakefield. I enjoy getting creative, being outdoors, writing & cooking. In more difficult times, it feels harder than ever to keep creative. The thing that keeps me going and feeling bright are the people around me.”


What does the word ‘care’ mean to you? Have a think about who or what cares for you, and who or what you care for. Celebrate that care and what it might mean to you!

You could write an acrostic poem using the name of the person or thing you’re thinking about, create them a special recipe or find the time to learn something new about each other. Anything goes! Gift your creation, or keep it with you.

Watch Tash’s video or read the full transcript here.


If you were to write an acrostic poem that helped you define ‘care’ – what four words would you choose?
