Deep Pockets: Free Money Day Brings Radical Generosity To a Sidewalk Near You

by Julie Ma

September 16, 2012

While cold hard cash will take center stage on Saturday, participants around the world are putting their own spin on the concept of giving for giving’s sake. In Portugal, a video store will provide free rentals, encouraging customers to share the cash they've saved with strangers. In Wales, a group will host a skills-sharing event. Two street musicians in New Zealand plan to redistribute their proceeds to passersby, and researchers in Thailand will even give up half of their land holdings to start a land trust for permaculture farmers.
