So what is Generosity Day? It’s an effort to re-boot Valentine’s Day for good.
The Generosity Revolution are rebooting Valentine's Day as Generosity Day: one day of sharing love with everyone, of being generous to everyone, to see how it feels and to practice saying "Yes." Let's make the day about love, action and human connection -- because we can do better than smarmy greeting cards, overpriced roses, and stressed-out couples trying to create romantic meals on the fly.
Instead of forging V-Day connections with one person via chocolate, candlelight and a card, we want to forge G-Day connections with as many people as possible – including complete strangers – by saying YES to every opportunity to be nice, help out, or delight with generosity.It might mean telling a colleague how much you appreciate them and agreeing to that long-delayed lunch. Or saying yes to that nonprofit asking for free advice on their website.
The Generosity Revolution has been brought into effect by Sasha Dichter and Katya Andresen. Take the Generosity Day pledge! http://www.causes.com/causes/646624-generosity-day/actions
It seems there's a general shake-up being demanded! Check out the Occupy Valentine's Day Blog here - http://occupyvday.tumblr.com/
