In the not so distant past I was on the infamous #loopholesonlife.com podcast with my pal Stitch and as we concluded thoroughly discussed the wonders of Hot Yoga and the concept of “Everything from Nothing” we caught ourselves in the midst of an unexpected and organic moment of realizing we….like many others…..might just have a little too many clothes, toys and materials than what we really need. We made a commitment that night to do something about it and I hope to challenge and implore many of you to do the same along with us!
The campaign is called #RiseBeforeFall and we are committing to giving away about 1/3 of our closet to a charitable organization of our choice! I have chosen to give my clothes to #goodwill and my shoes to #soles4souls and will be documenting my progress on twitter if you follow me please @stanloopholes. My son is gonna catch the fever and give away his toys that he is now too old for as well!
I got super excited about this when I was talking with Stitch because honestly I thought he wouldn’t be game for such a challenge! For me living in NYC it’s easy to see the upside in downsizing in our shoebox apartments. But even Stitch in his nice sizeable Akron Ohio home was down for the cause! “I am about to go nuts, man!” were his exact words!! So let’s see it Stitch! Follow his path @loopholesonlife; let’s see what you can post along with me!!
What a crazy path this podcast and Loopholesonlife.com mindset brings us each and every day, week and month! You would have thought this would have come up on “The unbelievable life of washing machines, and materialism” which was perhaps one of my favorite pods of all time; but leave it to us to get sidetracked like two dogs chasing a squirrel and find our passion to do something great on our Nothingness podcast.
I thank you for reading along with this blog and following our podcast and I challenge you to join us on twitter and to join us before the summer is officially over by committing to participating….even if a little….in #RiseBeforeFall!
See you all soon on the pod!
