#FreeMoneyDay

(A more generous world is possible)

Every year on September 15th, people across the world hand out their own money to complete strangers (virtually or in-person), asking recipients to pass half on to someone else. An experiment in generosity, Free Money Day invites a questioning of our relationship to money. Are you daring enough to give it a try?

How to get involved

With the Covid-19 situation varying across regions, you have three options to take part in Free Money Day:

1. Leave money as a surprise

Spark the spirit of generosity by hiding two banknotes with a message to pass one on.

Write a note + find a location + leave money for someone to find!

2. Share money in person

Galvanize and inspire your community by setting up an event in your local area. 

Find a public place + give out two coins or notes at a time!

3. Give away money digitally

Connect with people across the world by giving money digitally or hosting a virtual event.

Select recipients + send money via a digital payment platform!
