What is the Sofa Cushion Challenge? It's a game! Forgotten treasure to find. Friends to challenge. And a way to help save sick & injured tortoises in real life!

Step #1: Go to a place in your home where you know coins tend to gather. I chose to look under the sofa cushions but any likely place will do. The point is to find money that already belongs to you but that you've forgotten about. Make a video of your search naming three people you want to challenge. Kids, please ask parents first.

Sick & Injured tortoises.
Step #2: Count up the spare change you rediscovered in Step #1 and donate it to the charity that inspired this challenge: The California Turtle & Tortoise Club (Valley Chapter)'s Sick & Injured Tortoise Fund. Or — if you found less than five dollars or want to donate cents (like $1.63) — use the CTTC Valley's PayPal Giving Fund instead.
Step #3: If you made a video of your search, now's the time to post it online. Make sure your friends know they've been challenged. Then sit back and wait for their videos! Who found the most treasure? If you couldn't make a video yourself, go ahead and challenge your friends anyway. Let's see how big a difference we can make!
