An Idea That Could Change Everything
I have an idea that could change the world, but I need to ask for your help in spreading it around and starting a movement.
I know, you’re probably saying, “oh… is that all, Gina? You just need me to help you change the world and start a movement? Suuuure, crazy lady!”
Yup, that’s right. I believe that if you’re going to do something, you do it BIG!
The “No Gifts, Please” Movement
So here’s my idea- I would like everyone to ask their friends and family members to give to a non-profit or worthy cause on their birthday, instead of giving them presents.
Think about it. If every person in the world did this, then no child or adult would go hungry, no one would be homeless, no animal would need to be euthanized, no children would die from malaria or famine and so much more!
An Addiction And A Hang Over You’ll Enjoy!
I’ve done this now for the past several years, and I can’t even tell you how good it feels to know that I’ve helped in some small way. There is no feeling that is better than giving, and once you’ve felt it, it’s addicting!
Inspired By Oprah Winfrey
I was inspired to start doing this because of Oprah’s “Big Give” television show, and it’s been such a big success that I think everyone should give it a try (no pun intended) . All you have to do is pick a non-profit or charity that’s close to your heart, throw yourself a party, and let everyone know that it’s a “No Gifts Please” party, and tell them where you’d prefer their money or donated items to go.
Get This Party Started
So help me in starting the “No Gifts Please Movement” and PLEASE take the time to share this idea on your own blog or website, and through all of the social networks you’re a part of.
Let’s get the “No Gifts Please” party started!!
