Can we use our creative talents to create a great new opportunity to make the world a better place? Rather than see the period between the Christmas and New Year holidays as a drab, non-event, it can be transformed , with its own positive feel and character. Instead of binge shopping or drinking we can all be celebrating binge thinking and doing.
December could see the arrival of a new addition to the seasonal calendar with the Twixtmas break – the period between the Christmas and New Year holidays – being transformed into an ‘unholiday’ of binge thinking and doing to make the world a better place.
A new not-for-profit web site, http://www.twixtmas.com/ I have created aims to provide ideas, inspiration and instigation to divert people from being bored, couch potatoes or unhappy shoppers between December 27th to December 31st.
Instead, the five-day break, is an ideal opportunity to do five good things to make your world a better placed by spoiling yourself, doing things for others, reconnecting with lost friends or family, helping the planet, and planning for your future.
In a world of widespread time poverty, where most people use the excuse of not having enough time to do things to make the world a better place, if just .1% of the UK population did five good things during Twixtmas it would create 250,000 acts of goodness.
The Twixtmas web site offers advice, information and also free facilities to send an email Twixtmas greetingor download your own Twixtmas pledge form where you can record your own five things you intend to do to make your world a better placed during the five day break.
