Black Friday is historically a day for shopping, consumerism and the start of the chaos of the holiday season… might we offer that this year, you change it up. Instead of going out and blowing all your cash on a TV no one really needs, take the time to spend quality time with your family, friends or by yourself.
Join us for No Spend Black Friday (or otherwise known as ‘Buy Nothing Day’) November 29, 2019!
Buy Nothing Day is a movement that started to counter consumerism and encourage that we all take a hard look at our consumer habits. Let this be the year that instead of buying gifts that may be instantly gratifying, but long term lose their luster- give the gift of your presence and gratitude. Give the gift of YOU to those you love and yourself. Then, if you still have gifts to buy, focus that energy on #ShopSmallSaturday instead to support your local community and buy unique, individualized gifts that only can be found locally.
We will have free snacks and beverages throughout the day, as well as free classes, crafts and conversation.
Here’s the schedule:
10a Family Yoga – this will be geared towards families with kiddos, but all families are welcome! It will be controlled chaos including group exercises, breathing techniques and above all- time together to laugh and be)
11a Gratitude Jar Crafting– we will be making our own gratitude jars to take into 2020. Already have one? We’ll have writing prompts to help fill yours up with fantastic memories of 2019
12p Final Book Club of 2019– let’s wrap up the year by talking about LOVE! Come to the book club having read the entire book of All About Love by bell hooks. We’ll discuss it and how we can take the love vibe into the holidays.
