How has Leaven Community made a difference in your life?
Are you investing in this difference for yourself and others?
Dear Leaven Community & Leaven friends, neighbors and fellow risers,
October is Money Mindfulness Month AND Leaven turns 3! In celebration and solidarity, you are invited to join your Leaven Community in this spiritual exercise, put your heart behind our money, and in the process grow Leaven into sustainability so we can keep rising and thriving!
How to participate in Money Mindfulness Month!
Each time you interact with money this month, stop and ask yourself these three questions:
If the purchase/investment is in-line with your heart, carry on!
If not, save it and record the amount saved on your Soulful Savings Card (which you can download/print below, or find in the Sunroom at Leaven).
Then, at the end of the week (or month), total up your Soulful Savings, combine it with the money-power of your spiritual community, and Rise with Leaven, by donating it to Leaven's sustainability campaign. You can do this a few different ways:
Follow along with us!
Throughout October, we will share and hear stories of people's Money Mindfulness in Salt & Light worship and at Buddhist Meditation & Mindfulness, as well as in weekly email updates, updating you on our progress.
Help us get to $32,000!
Our first goal is Rise with Leaven into sustainability and raise $16K to empower our mission. As of July, we were $32K behind in our internal budgeted giving for the year -- so we have the opportunity to cut that in half in ONE MONTH of mindfulness. Can we do it? Could we exceed that? YES, when we put our hearts together -- as is Leaven’s way!
So, equip your wallet (and heart) with your Soulful Savings card and start collecting that money-power for this beloved community, organizing body and neighborhood hub that hosts our spiritual and communal lives, and so many powerful non-profits and community groups. Let’s Rise, Leaven!
