Ideas for Creative Challenges

The challenge to get on stage at a concert dressed in a chicken costume.


            Everybody has a little bit of challenge in them. If you don’t think that you do, then you just don’t know it yet. It’s human nature to push yourself to do challenging things. If you haven’t found anything that stirs your interest, then we are here to help you come up with some awesome challenge ideas!

            Every day, we read tons of feedback from our fans and a common theme seems to be that they can’t think of interesting things to do. This happens for several reasons, one being the location of the moolta user.

Jane from Iowa writes to us:

“I see all of these awesome challenges on moolta, like the dress like a chicken and get on stage at a concert challenge, and I want to do things like this but I’m from a small farm town and we don’t have those kinds of things here! HELP ME COME UP WITH CHALLENGES TO DO!!!”

Well Jane, we appreciate your spirit and willingness to do challenges and here is the main piece of advice we have to offer for you in your current situation:

  • Take advantage of your surroundings! You’re from a farm town; so do farm related challenges. If you have horses, try jousting your friends with water balloons instead of swords. If you have cows, try drinking straight from their utters. If you have pigs, try eating their food with them (with no hands of course). You see Jane, there are challenges everywhere, you just have to adapt to your surroundings. We are looking forward to your next challenge.

Other users have trouble finding the right range of difficulty for their challenges.

            Matt from Florida writes to us:

“As much as I love watching some of the crazier challenges you guys have on moolta, no matter how much money I could make I wouldn’t be insane enough to do them. You guys should give users easier challenges.”

Thanks for the advice Matt! At moolta we don’t believe that you have to be crazy to complete cool challenges… there are challenges of all kinds for any type of person.  Try doing the following:

  • Check out the idea generator on our create a challenge page (the link is at the top right of our moolta dashboard. The generator is filled with challenges of all difficulty levels. If you still can’t find anything that you like then be creative. If you like music, try playing your favorite song on the piano… using your feet! If you like sports, try to make a bunch of trick basketball shots. Challenges don’t have to be difficult or dangerous, they just have to appeal to a certain audience. Do what you like to do and make it interesting.

The main point is that there is no reason to struggle with challenge ideas. Challenges can be ANYTHING! Easy or hard, dangerous or delightful… As long as you appreciate it, others will too. So go get out there and make challenges! Don’t let anything stop you.

Big Business Giving Back

Every now and then we like to take a quick break from our fun and crazy challenges to acknowledge all the other companies out there that are fighting for corporate social goodness alongside moolta. In a world filled with big business, greed and corporate irresponsibility, a few companies stand out and shine amongst the rest as honorable ventures always looking to give back.

As you already know, moolta raises money for charities. We take pride in helping those in need and cherish everything we do for the organizations that benefit from our work. Here is a list of three other companies who also give back and the different ways they go about doing so:

 

TOMS

For a company who claims that giving is part of their DNA, TOMS sure lives up to it. TOMS sells shoes, eyewear and apparel, all made from sustainable and vegan materials… even the box is 80% recycled material! But more importantly, for every pair of shoes you buy from TOMS, another pair is donated to somebody in need in poor areas around the world. The company is currently running a giving campaign as well. “Ticket To Give” is a way for TOMS to send 50 people on trips to different parts of the world to give shoes to those who need and chronicle the events. You can even enter to be one of the 50 who take a trip! If you would like to sign up or are interested in learning more, check out the Ticket To Give website here: Ticket To Give

 

Pepsi

Pepsi launched their “Pepsi Refresh” project as recently as the Super Bowl, but they have managed to make great contributions to society in that time. Pepsi Refresh is a community based around Pepsi where customers can communicate with the brand. Customers can vote on which charity they want Pepsi to support, what contributions they want Pepsi to make to society, and even what fundraising events Pepsi should have. The community is the perfect mix of modern social media, corporate responsibility, and fun! To check out the site for yourself, follow this link: Pepsi Refresh

 

Wear The Fund

One of our favorite young companies today is Wear The Fund and it’s not because they were also first launched at the University of Florida. Wear The Fund is not only the epitome of corporate responsibility, but the whole brand is based on it. When you purchase a trendy and original article of clothing from Wear The Fund, 20% of your bill goes to one of six charities and the choice is yours! Customers currently get to choose between the Jack & Jill Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Big Hearts For Big Dogs Rescue, Kiwanis International, The Alzheimer’s Association and Tabarinni. Finally, you can go on that big shopping spree and not feel guilty at the end of it. Check out the Wear The Fund website to learn more about the company and buy your first Wear The Fund shirt!

If we’ve inspired you to give back to charity, make it easy on moolta. Go create a few challenges and raise some money for one of our 12 charities!

Moolta’s Top 5 Food Challenges

The Art of Eating

Bet you can’t eat 64 hot dogs like Joey Chestnut

We’ve truly come a long way since the beginning of the famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. New challenges are added every day on moolta, but recently it has been some of the food challenges that have caught our eyes. Whether you’re eating hot dogs, cinnamon, crackers, wasabi, chugging milk or chowing down on abnormally large burgers, every effort deserves a round of applause. We’ve gathered a few unique challenges that have all taken place on moolta and they’re sure to give you a laugh.

Black Guy Does Mayo Challenge

Many of us are used to saying “hold the mayo,” on food orders. The ridiculously high amounts of calories and fat isn’t a healthy addition to any meal. Forget eating a serving or two on your sandwich though, this guy eats an entire jar!!!

The Ran Over Burger

Anybody can eat a burger, that’s not what made this challenge special. Michael and James Glaze completed their challenge to flatten burgers with the tires of their car and eat them. Everybody hates a “hit-n-run,” but these two make you laugh with their “hit-n-bun.”

15 Shots in 90 seconds

Ok, this one isn’t food, and it actually doesn’t even get completed. But the process of trying to complete the challenge is absolutely hilarious! Phil has to take 15 shots of whiskey in 90 seconds, and without spoiling the ending, I just want to tell you he gets nowhere close!

Eat a Bowl of Grass

Salad is about as far as I will go with vegetables, to be honest, it’s a challenge in itself for me to even eat a full bowl. But Shoenice takes it to another level with this challenge. He somehow manages to eat four square feet of grass in a bowl despite an obvious struggle.

Eat a coworkers doughnut behind his back

This wasn’t an eating challenge, it was an eating prank! And it gets better, this prank took place in our very own moolta office! This is what happens when you’re socializing instead of working… and you leave a delicious doughnut on the table. Sucks to suck, Sagi.

To try your very own eating challenge, go on moolta.com and create a challenge! We’ll be waiting to see your results. The person who completes our favorite eating challenge will not only receive a blog post dedicated to them that will be viewed by our thousands of fans, but the video will be posted on our Facebook page as well!

Best of luck to all of you!

Getting naked for the needy

Celebrities have a history of stripping down to their knickers for charity

If you haven’t seen it yet, the Warwick University Rowing Club’s naked calendar is something you won’t want to miss. Both the men’s and women’s team posed nude to help raise money for charity… and the web is going absolutely bonkers over it.

When are tryouts? I’d do whatever is needed to join this rowing team.

Once the pictures went viral on the internet, both teams sold out of every calendar and they are now on backorder. While this is the first year the women’s team made a naked Continue reading

5 celebrity charity challenges worth repeating

The challenge to put all your eggs in one basket, and by basket we mean mouth.

The egg challenge started when a fan wrote to Smash Mouth’s Lead Singer, Steve Harwell, asking him to eat 24 eggs while he (the fan) is filming him. The generous guy even offered to buy all of the eggs and pay Steve $20 as well! He even went the extra mile and agreed to buy the more expensive brown ones.

Pretty soon all sorts of clips and posts from different fans started showing up on the web pleading the lead singer to agree to the challenge. (Here is one for you to get the point (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2mTkoohEnxc#!)

After a while this tweet was published and long story short, we don’t think Steve Harwell is going to eat another omelet for as long as he lives.

Strike a pose – the super bowl captain version

British actress, Stacy Keibler teamed up with Captain Morgan to raise money for charity while giving the Super Bowl audience a good time.

They called for the players of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals to do the ‘Captain’s pose’ at some point during the game. Each time they do, Captain Morgan would donate $10,000 to charity ($5,000 to the player’s favorite charity and $5,000 to Keibler’s charity of choice).

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to help my charity, the John Waldhauser Foundation,” said Keibler, a former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, while posing in hot and sexy positions wearing practically nothing.

It’s OK you can look, it’s for charity!

Amanda Holden (the one with the very nice shoes), Kelly Brook and Tess Daly all posed in their high heels along with 21 other celebrities who are taking part in the oh so sexy photo shoot to launch the Heels that Heal campaign.
In addition, Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole and the Prime Minister’s wife Sarah Brown will be delving into their shoe closet for an EBay auction of the stars’ stilettos.

Why we love Ellen DeGeneres….

The never ending surprise that is Ellen DeGeneres seems to truly implicate what we at Moolta keep telling you – giving money to charity is nice, but making an epic challenge out of fundraising is much better!

In this video Ellen is challenging Jennifer Love Hewittt to do some simple and basic tasks like rolling a whole toilet paper in 15 seconds or breaking 2 bottles over her head, all for the sake of charity… And some quality entertainment.
Watch here to see the entire challenge

Ellen also challenged British actor Andrew Garfield, the star of The Amazing Spider-Man, to dance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and in return for each dance completed successfully, the 29-year-old would receive $1,000 towards his charity, Worldwide Orphans Foundation.

Garfield not only did his best Gangnam Style, but he also performed the Irish jig, a belly dance and “Single Ladies.” With the hilarious bit, the star raised $10,000 dollars for his charity.
