We were thrilled to kick off the first of our event series last month with a number of Feasters! Just before Thanksgiving, we gathered in Projective Space in the Lower East Side for an evening on taking the courage to express gratitude and sharing our own.
The question of the night: Why don’t we give thanks?
Our founder Jerri Chou did what she does and opened the night, getting everyone excited and inspired to explore the good in giving.
Dev Aujla had us pondering the things that hold us back from giving. He gave us wonderful insight and challenged us to give ourselves permission to be genuine and vulnerable with one another.
He also talked about how to best do good in giving
"Give the right resource to the right person at the right time" —Dev Aujla
Feasters did an activity where they wrote a “letter of truth” to someone they didn’t know and enjoyed some pre-Thanksgiving pies. It was the perfect start to our monthly event series!
To top it off we did a little giving of our own. One hundred percent of the ticket costs went towards the ruralkids.org Super Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Relief Fund.
The Feast now has more ways to get in on the good with our monthly event series. Each month we’ll invite our community to join us for snack-size versions of The Feast Conference that include great speakers, great activities and a more intimate setting. Stay tuned for more throughout the year from The Feast.
