Buy Nothing; Give Something

Buy Nothing Day is Friday Nov 26th in the US/Canada, and Saturday Nov 27th everywhere else* - It's about pausing for reflection in the midst of the busiest shopping period of the year.

Uganda Village Project is asking you to abstain from buying stuff on Buy Nothing Day and instead, to use that time and money to make a difference in the lives of people without the luxury of consumer choice.

Donations can be made at:

For the price of a new pair of jeans, you can help dozens of people in rural Iganga access treatment and repair for curable eye diseases. Instead of dinner in a restaurant you can provide mosquito nets to protect a whole family from malaria. Not buying never felt so good.
