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.

Made a mistake?
Had severe consequences?
But did you start the Zombie Apocalypse?
If not, isn’t it time you gave yourself a do-over?

Good Giving Weekly: NEW WAY OF BEING
March 23, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

I am back in Denver after spending last week in Nebraska with my five-year-old son, Henry Zane. Henry is gearing up for tee-ball, so we spent a lot of time in the yard hitting, throwing, catching and running the bases. We also went through his toys and picked out some he no longer wants to giveaway. We took Charlie and my mom’s Chihuahua mix, Bella on walks, and enjoyed the first few days of Spring, including a brief rain and snow burst.

When Mbali gave me the 29 Gifts prescription in March of 2008, I was desperate for a new way of being. I was in scarcity mindset; addicted to negativity, depressed, diseased, weak, broke, exhausted and spiritually spent. The most valuable thing I gained from my first cycle of 29 Gifts was a renewed sense of self worth and a psychic shift that improved the quality of my life. Each gift brought me a sense of freedom and released bound energy so I experience gratitude and abundance. Ten years and 43,800 gifts later, I am still in awe of the magic moment when I connect with a fellow human being and offer a kind gesture from my heart.

Share a story in our forums. Tell me what you are learning from your giving journey, whether you are just starting out or a returning veteran who gives daily. I recently did an interview for MS and Me Radio Podcast. Please listen and share.

Enjoy and share my Today Show interview, which launched #29Gifts onto the New York Times Bestseller List in 2009.

We are celebrating a DECADE of making a DIFFERENCE in March. Please send birthday wishes in the comments and in your social media posts by using the tag #29Gifts. Post your favorite quote from the book, pictures of yourself with your book, images, stories or videos documenting your giving adventures.

29 Life Lessons: Reflections On Living and Giving is the much anticipated sequel to Cami Walker’s New York Times Bestselling self-help memoir, 29 Gifts: How A Month of Giving Can Change Your Life. Get submission guidelines and read a sample story from Cami.

GREAT GIVEAWAY: The Giving Challenge by Stephanie L. Jones
Leave a comment in the Great Giveaway Discussion forum by March 28 to enter to win a signed copy of The Giving Challenge, a book inspired by #29Gifts. What began as a New Year's resolution, a challenge to give a daily gift for a month, thrust Stephanie into an adventure-from befriending a crying stranger at the airport to giving away a pencil collection she started as a child. One month turned into 500 days, and seven years later Stephanie's daily giving is a way of life, changing her in ways she never imagined.

Are you an artist, writer or entrepreneur who would you like to share your product or service with our community? We need giveaways for March and April. DM Community Manager Melanie Peters to sponsor a giveaway. Thanks Melanie for your service and support!
