The  ActiveRain POINT STORE is an 'imaginary store' that pops up every now and again in the rain.  Over the years we've had a lot of fun bidding on Point Store 'offerings' and having fun with what our points can buy 🤣.  All fictional folks, just for fun! 


Time to create more fun via the July Challenge!  Thank you to our Co-hosts Carol Williams, Kathy Streib for helping with this July Challenge!


There are 2 opportunities in the July Challenge to earn points!

First Challenge: After browsing through the Point Store offerings decide which  ONE offering you'd like to purchase with your earned points.  Next write a post about why you chose that particular offering and the fun you are imagining on the adventure!

Second Challenge: Give some imaginative thought at to what YOU would like to offer in a future Point Store. Write a  post describing your offering and why you  think it would be a great choice to spend points on.  The sky is the limit with your imagination!

You must follow the  July Challenge Rules carefully to earn your points!  Each  entry post must include 2 photos and have a minimum of 300 words. You must include working links to both entries on 1 comment on this post.  You can chose to do one or two posts for this challenge. 1500 points per post will be awarded in early August. Contest runs from July 1st to July 31st and Point Store will close for now.
