February & the 28 Days of Generosity - HELP!!!


The director of the Montrose Community Foundation came to me with a great idea. She wants to engage our community in 28 days of generosity during the month of February. We dreamt together about what could happen if a community sowed richly for 28 days in a row.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.

2 Corinthians 9:6 (NIV)

We hope to print up business cards with 28 themes for the 28 days of February. We hope that this will give folks a guide to engage in generosity together through the month of February. We have a few ideas for topics;  

1.      Feed someone
2.      Invite someone into your day
3.      Listen to someone from another generation
4.      Share your story
5.      Make a difference with $5
6.      …?

We will expound on these topics on a blog and through email and share it with the community throughout the month. We’d like to share videos and ideas that support each daily topic. We want to share ideas that would allow everyone in a community, rich and poor alike, into this generosity.

We invited folks to come and have coffee and cinnamon rolls and to hear about the idea and with very little work we had standing room only. The local paper helped to draw a crowd with a short article. This is going to be big, but I need your help.

A challenge to you.

Share ideas in the comments on what the 28 days could look like?

Help me dream about how to reach a community in a grass-roots sort of way.

Consider engaging your family or your community in the same 28 days of generosity. (I’ll share all the details as we go along.)

Sow generously!
