Purpose

Dreading the holiday season? The frantic rush and stress? The to-do lists and sales hype? The spiritless hours trapped in malls?

WE ARE PROPOSING WALMART PROTESTS AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GO TO THE STORE NEAR THEM.

Walmart is one of the main contributors in the incredibly negative impact on the American economy and we should all start buying LOCAL!

But if you would rather not be out on Black Friday, maybe you could consider some of these activities...

This year, why not gather together your loved ones and decide to do things differently?

With the simplest of plans you can create a new rhythm, purpose and meaning for the holidays.

Why not take the spirit of Buy Nothing Day and morph it into Buy Nothing Christmas?

With catastrophic climate change looming, we the rich one billion people on the planet have to consume less! And if that's too extreme for grandma and the kids, try for a Buy Less Christmas. And maybe a buy local, buy fairer, buy indie Christmas. Whatever you decide, 'tis the season to reclaim our year-end celebrations and make them our own again.

If you want to go one step further off the consumer treadmill, consider one of these actions from previous holiday seasons
  • Give your friends and family a "gift exemption" card
  • Ask shoppers "What Would Jesus Buy?"
  • Get some friends together (or go solo), dress as santa and meditate in the middle of a busy shopping mall
  • Check out buynothingchristmas.org to check out more actions (or inactions) you can take this holiday season
