Event: Commoning our Gifts – An opportunity to give and receive

Come Join the Eugene New Economy Working Group at the Eugene Garden Club (1645 High Street) on Buy-Nothing Day (Nov 23rd) to create community prosperity and gratefulness without shopping!

Each person should bring one or more items to donate that they would like to see bring joy to others. Not the things you most want to get rid of, but the best items you feel good about passing on to another. The next step will be to indicate which of the gifted items you would most like to receive. The final step will be an actual giving of the gifts! If you have items that are too large to bring feel free to bring a picture and a description.

The event will run from 1-5pm. Please plan to arrive with your gifts by 2pm. We hope to have all the gifts given away by 4:30pm.

We will also have an area for folks that would like to discuss ideas and network about New Economy related topics as well as a signup sheet where you can indicate your interest in joining a Time Bank service sharing network if one is created here in town.

We need additional volunteers to help set up, greet, process gifts, and clean up. We would also welcome any New Economy related group that would like to have a table at the event. E-mail Amanda at amandaopening (at) gmail dot com if you would like to help with any of these things.
