Why 29 Gifts?

Give one thing away each day for 29 days. Share your stories about how it impacts your life to focus on giving. Join the 29-Day Giving Challenge community today.  

Why? Because to see the world change, we have to do something to change the world.  Plus, the best way to attract abundance into your life is to be in a perpetual state of giving and gratitude.  Be an important part of the global giving movement that inspires more generosity on our planet.

One month after her wedding day, thirty-three-year-old Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and the life she knew changed forever. Cami was soon in and out of L.A.’s emergency rooms with alarming frequency as she battled the neurological condition that left her barely able to walk and put enormous stress on her marriage. Each day brought new negative thoughts:

"I’m going to end up in a wheelchair... My life is over.

    Why did this have to happen to me?"

Then, as a remedy for her condition, Cami received an uncommon prescription from a friend, an African medicine woman named Mbali Creazzo.  The prescription was to give away 29 gifts in 29 days.

“By giving,” Mbali told her, “you are focusing on what you have to offer others, inviting more abundance into your life.”

The gifts, she said, could be anything, but their giving had to be both authentic and mindful. At least one gift needed to be something she felt was scarce in her life.

Cami was amazed by what unfolded during her month-long journey... you will be too.  Join us in the journey to change your world and in turn change the entire world.

Give one thing away, each day, for 29 days. Why?
Because to see your world change, you have to DO something to change your world.
Change the world by changing your own.

TIME TO TALK ABOUT IT?
Don’t we all deserve:
Education? Healthcare?
A chance to work? To give back?
Don’t we all benefit then?

Good Giving Weekly

October 18th, 2017

Greetings 29 Gifts Community,

OCTOBER GREAT GIVEAWAY

Kimberly Arms Shirk defied all odds as she survived being severely burned and nearly killed by 13,000 volt electrical line accident and today tells her story of determination and hope in "Remote Fears and Silver Linings." For your chance to win a copy of Kimberly’s book, comment on the Great Giveaways Discussion Board before October 28th. Winner will be announced on October 29th.


OCTOBER DAY OF GIVING

This month 29Gifters are encouraged to give to themselves. Sometimes the greatest gift you can bestow upon yourself is that of letting go. This month we encourage you to choose something in your life that is not good for you or causes undue stress. Create a mask that represents that hindrance and share your mask on our Day of Giving. Remove that mask and the negative element from your life and hopefully you will find that you have giving yourself more room for grace, positivity, and charity. Be ready to remove those masks on October 29th.
