With Thanksgiving around the corner, why not talk about Valentine’s Day? Actually, I’m only half joking. I’m part of a group of people who are trying to reboot Valentine’s Day as Generosity Day (join us here), and gratitude is a big part of that—and Thanksgiving, of course.
Sasha Dichter invites you to celebrate this Thanksgiving by getting a head start on Generosity Day:
“What better way to give thanks than by giving? What better way to show gratitude than by helping others? What better way to get ready for Generosity Day 2012 than by doing a mini-generosity experiment of your own? Try it next week, for the week or just for one day. Consider it your Generosity Day Dry Run, so that you can speak with gusto and authenticity when the big day arrives. Start on Monday so you can arrive at Thanksgiving Dinner with stories to share. Imagine families coming together and swapping our personal generosity stories, which people can take away and bring home with them, planting the seed of this idea far and wide. As a bonus to everyone else in this community, share your reflections, experiences and stories by:
- Commenting on this blog post
- Emailing generosityday [at] gmail.com
- Tweeting / sending Facebook updates using the #generosityday hashtag
We’ll share – with permission, of course – some of these stories in the lead-up to Generosity Day 2012. And if you want to sign up to get special Generosity Day update sign up for the Generosity Day Google Group here.
