It's Coming! MK Spirit Week 2016

March 7 - 11, 2016

Usually MK stands for Missionary Kid,

But in March it stands for...

Attention, MK agents all over the world. It's time to put on those disguises.

Should you choose to accept this mission, your assignments are as follows...

Monday, March 7th
Sports Day

Don't worry if your dribbling is so bad you need a bib. Grab that basketball. Take hold of that cricket bat. Time to put on those sports jerseys. Paint your face in honor of your favorite team. Take a picture and send it to us! And we will help you put your game face on!

Tuesday, March 8th
Book Character Day

Calling all book characters!!! Time to come alive! Dress like a favorite book character, take a picture, and send it in.

Wednesday, March 9th
Twin/Triplet Day

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a twin? Imagine the jokes you could pull on people! So here's your challenge: Find a fellow MK or a friend and dress alike. Snap a picture and show the world your secret look-alike. Feeling bold? Try for triplets!

Thursday, March 10th
Hero Day

It's a bird! It's a plane! Um... no... even better! It's an MK! Throw on that cape and dazzle us with your best superhero look. Dress up like your favorite hero and send us a picture.
(We are not responsible for broken capes that do not make you fly. Please do not jump from high places to test your superhero skills. And no laser fast rolled up sock bomb throwing at your little sister, either.)

Friday, March 11th
Idiom/Pun Day

Time to let the cat out of the bag! We are spilling the beans! A picture is really worth a thousand words, so send in those idiom pictures! Dress up as your favorite idiom or pun and send us the picture. We will see if we can figure out your punny puzzle disguise!

Monday - Friday, March 7 - 11
Each day we will also have...
Ask the MK!
A chance for your voice to be heard... and we certainly want to hear from you!

(And we may even have a little something up our sleeves for Mom!)

AND if that isn't enough...
Each day we will also host
"Picture This!"
A chance for our MKs to show off their photography skills by taking a picture of a different topic each day.

That's right! This year you have a chance to win prizes for participating in MK Spirit Week.

Some fabulous people who just LOVE MKs have jumped at the opportunity to love on MKs. They are sponsoring the giveaways for each day. What's in store? Amazon gift cards! Good for Kindle books, movie and music downloads, and if you have access to Amazon shipping... the options are endless!

Must be a verifiable, legitimate, honest to goodness BMW MK.

To enter, submit a photo of you dressed for the MK Spirit Theme for the day. Also, those MKs responding to "Ask the MK" will have more opportunities to win. AND those submitting photos for "Picture This" will have another opportunity to win! Email photo submissions to . Include the name of each child in the picture. Also include the country or field of service OR the geographic region if security is a concern. Photos will be posted on the BMW Blog at the discretion of the BMW Blog Team.

Winners will be randomly selected from entries.

Winners announced Monday, March 14, 2016, on BMW Blog.

Wow! What a lot of work, Charity, but so much fun for the kids! I had to laugh because as I was reading I was thinking of outfits I could dress Genevieve (my Westie, or my daughter as I like to call her. ) in for the super hero day and the sports day, but then I saw your comment. ..must be a bona-fide BWM MK and I thought, I don't think she qualifies. Hahaha.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Can't wait to see all the pictures.
