We are taking donations to be donated to Operation Teddy Bear Care, a non-profit organization that provides food, books, toys and other simple comforts to South African children living in poverty.
Suggested donation is $29, but nobody is turned away for lack of funds. Give what you can easily afford -- $1, $5, $10 -- every little bit helps. If you prefer to donate at the door or don't have spare cash, just enter 1 in the box, click "Register" then click the link that says “View Other Payment Options” and select “Pay at the Door.”
ABOUT THE DAY
Hear from Mbali Creazzo, the medicine woman who gave Cami the “29 Gifts Prescription” and enjoy a guided visualization from 29 Gifts Meditation teacher, Angel Stork. Cami Walker will do a reading from the book and book signing. Plus, get free services from some of our 29Gifts.org friends.
Take part in our BIG GIFT EXCHANGE by bringing one small gift to pass on.

29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life Book Summary:
At age thirty-five, Cami Walker was burdened by a battle with multiple sclerosis, a chronic neurological condition that made it difficult for her to walk, work, or enjoy her life. Seeking a remedy for her depression after being hospitalized, she received an uncommon prescription from South African medicine woman, Mbali Creazzo: Give to others for 29 days.
29 Gifts is the insightful story of the author’s life change as she embraces and reflects on the naturally reciprocal process of giving and receiving. Many of Walker’s gifts were simple —a phone call, spare change, a Kleenex. Yet the acts were transformative. By Day 29, not only had Walker’s health and happiness improved, but she had created a worldwide giving movement.
The book also includes personal essays from others whose lives changed for the better by giving, plus pages for the reader to record their own journey. More than a memoir, 29 Gifts offers inspiring lessons on how a simple daily practice of altruism can dramatically alter your outlook on the world.
RSVP by registering for this LAUNCH event above. You must pre-register because space is limited.
