About Free Money Day

Free Money Day is a global invitation for people to explore, in a liberating and fun way, what it might be like if our relationship to money was a little different. Each September 15th, worldwide, people hand out their own money to complete strangers (virtually or in-person), two coins or notes at a time, asking the recipients to pass one of these coins or notes on to someone else. It’s an opportunity to start conversations about money, sharing, and anything else that might come up.

Free Money Day has been running annually since 2011 and is an initiative of the Post Growth Institute (PGI). The PGI is an international, not-for-profit organization leading the shift to a world where people, companies and nature thrive together within ecological limits. We work collaboratively to develop ideas, programs, events and alliances that promote the equitable circulation of money, power and resources in our local communities and global economy.
