29 Gifts - Welcome

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.

Day 2 - called an older person who is lonely. She likes to talk forever and since time is my most important commodity, this was difficult one for me. Today, Day 3, I donated a violin to the school that I could have sold on Ebay for quite a bit but it felt good to give it away knowing some child who can't afford it will have one now. And Guess what? I don't know if this has anything to do with the challenge, but yesterday, I got notice that a state agency made mistakes billing us two years ago and now they owe us $550! What?! Yeah!
