February 1: Day to Share and Prepare for a Generous Month

What could happen if we join together as a community for 28 days of generosity?  You are in the right place.  The month of February we'll make it happen.  We'll have our own experiment in generosity right here in Western Colorado (if you are reading from outside the area, don't hesitate to join in).  Each day we'll join together being generous. The wonderful TED video with Michael Norton suggests that giving to others makes our lives better.  Science proves that giving releases Oxytocin in our bodies, giving us a positive lift when we are generous.  Receiving has the same effect.  Join in for the 28 Days of Generosity.  February 1st is Day 1 and we will spend the day sharing and preparing for generosity.  Each day we'll share some ideas to get the creative juices flowing.  Feel free to post your ideas and share in the comments, on Facebook and beyond.  28 Days Kick Off Event: 5:30 p.m. at Great Harvest (bring a friend and join the fun)!
