We raised 507 pounds of food for the Treasure Coast Food Bank. Readers and healers came to volunteer from as far away as Pennsylvania and Saint Petersburg.
Throughout the course of the day we had eighteen readers and two healers sharing their skills. Our four volunteer hosts made sure things ran smoothly.
Most years when I write about this event I write about its humble origins in Putnam, Connecticut, when I was the only reader for an afternoon of free readings.
This year, I want to focus on the energy that drives this event year after year, making it bigger and better with each year that passes.
The energy is generosity; radical, revolutionary generosity. We who are busy, we who are businesspeople, we who have hundreds of things to do and never enough time to get them done, we volunteer our time and skill, bring donations of food, travel great distances and share of ourselves, each in our own ways. It’s a community effort, and an effort that requires each person to muster that one important energy, the energy of generosity.
I believe that the more generous we are, the more we will receive. The more we bless others, the more we, ourselves will be blessed.
Thank you to the many, many people who volunteered and attended Holiday Open House 2019.
