Introducing Buy Nothing Christmas
This Christmas we'll be swamped with offers, ads and invitations
to buy more stuff. But now there's a way to say enough and
join a movement dedicated to reviving the original meaning
of Christmas giving.
Buy Nothing Christmas is a national initiative started by
Canadian Mennonites but open to everyone with a thirst for
change and a desire for action.
Buy Nothing Christmas is a stress-reliever, and more people
need to hear about it. You can change your world by simply
putting up one of the posters (or make your own) in your church,
place of worship, home or work. Be sneaky about it if you
have to. The point is to get people thinking. It's an idea
whose time has come, so get out there and make a difference!
