On September 15th, global event Free Money Day asks us to rethink our relationship with money. Put a new spin on sharing your wealth this year. As the organizers put it, it’s “common cents”.
“Free Money Day is a global invitation for people to explore, in a liberating and fun way, what it might be like if our relationships to money were a little different,” says Dr. Donnie Maclurcan, who’s Global Organiser of Free Money Day.
It’s a global invitation for people to explore, in a liberating and fun way, what it might be like if our relationship to money was a little different. On September 15th, worldwide, people will hand out their own money to complete strangers, two coins or notes at a time, asking the recipients to pass one of these coins or notes on to someone else. It’s an opportunity to start fresh conversations about money, sharing, and anything else that might come up.
“This event is about much more than money, it is about co-creating the futures we truly desire by building on what we know works: sharing. It is time we asked ourselves, how much is enough? Do we really need to grow on like this?” he asks.
So many exciting things are emerging out of Free Money Day 2012 and it hasn’t even happened yet! Just yesterday, the organizers received an email from a gentleman named Lance Hartsell from South Korea who was so inspired by the concept he and his wife are going to donate 1/2 their land to a land trust!
Getting involved is as easy as registering to give away a few dollars to strangers in your workplace, a shop, the street, or a park, etc. on September 15th.
