Join Me for Make Something Day 

I’m super excited to pass the word along to you, dear readers that the Make Something Day website is now live.

The Ecclesia Collective out of San Diego has been doing this for the past few years, with increasing amounts of attention, so they’ve taken their project to another level.  Make Something Day is sort of an extension of the Adbusters Buy Nothing Day . Make Something Day aims at something better:

We believe that giving is a central part of being human. So, we replaced the negative with something positive: Make Something Day. Go ahead and give gifts this holiday season. As they say, giving is better than receiving. But that doesn’t mean buying something is. So, we encourage folks to avoid shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Instead, stay home, put a log on the fire and try making something for someone.

Even for those of us who don’t think we’re creative, there are ideas and stories on the site that give us ways of participating.  Join in, won’t you?  Spread the word, join the Facebook group, share it on your own blog.
