Generosity Day a Rebooting of Valentine’s
Today is Generosity Day and instead of stressing over that perfect expensive romantic Feburary 14th, Sasha Dichter and the Acumen Fund are encouraging you to spend this day sharing some love and generosity with the people around you. It’s really the little things in life that make a difference. Small compliments, smiles or even just saying hello can totally change someone’s day. Take today to focus on brightening people’s days. Say hi to everyone you see, hold doors, call old friends, be encouraging. You just might like the way it makes you feel and hopefully the people you touch today will start spreading a little more generosity every day.
Take the Generosity Day pledge! http://www.causes.com/generosityday
If you want to take things to the next level and you have some Valentine’s Day funds to reallocate check out this awesome opportunity Global Giving has put together for you to give the gift of education or medical care to people in need. http://www.globalgiving.org/img/mail/2011/02/14/newsletter.html
This all started with Sasha’s personal generosity experiment. Check out his the TED Talk about it!
