The Fifth Pocket Challenge

Wear a fifth pocket for thirty days, share your experience through stories, and along the way, care for a non-profit by promoting them through your posts and pocket contents (business cards, etc.).


Wear a Fifth Pocket (your choice) for thirty days. Make the Fifth Pocket your own. 

I currently wear this Fifth Pocket, made by EOTW, but I just bought this one to test out a new manufacturer. I have curated a few designs that I like on the Shop page.  


Blog about your experience, the contents, the ridicule, and the unexpected things that you had or wish you had on hand (on an assigned day of the week, minimum 250 words). Email your blog posts to and I will post them on a scheduled basis. 

Post picture evidence of your fifth pocket (with the #thefifthpocketchallenge tag) on Facebook and Instagram (at least every other day 15 picture min.)

Recruit one other person to take The Fifth Pocket Challenge.


I'd like for each Fifth Pocketer to raise awareness for a charity of their choice, carrying material/business cards/information about that charity in their Fifth Pocket. Each blog post will end with a shout out to the aforementioned charity. Obscure charities that need promo only (no Red Cross, etc.).

If you complete the challenge, you may be awarded with a Fifth Pocket patch and entered into a raffle to receive a free Fifth Pocket. To be developed.  

In sum, this is a challenge to use a Fifth Pocket for 30 days and experiment with new ways to be an unexpected help or source of fun for people around you. Get creative, expect to surprise.
