It’s already December 5th. That means there are only 19 shopping days left until THE BIG DAY.
All over the world, millions are making lists, racking up credit card debt and stressing out over how to find the perfect gift for their friends and family members.
But across the globe, something else is pushing back against this consumerism with an opposite and equal force. Occupy Wall Street has opened the eyes and hearts of the 99%, and many have started to realize that buying, consuming, working and dying isn’t the reason for the season.
People are starting to talk, share, listen, learn, laugh, cry and just simply CARE about each other again. The 99% is rediscovering what it means to be part of a living, breathing community. As a nation, we are starting to realize that our time, talent, and respect are the greatest gifts any society can exchange.
