AGENDA

* 1-3 Presentation (free event but requires reservation)
* 3-5 Open House. Stop by and talk to the Ubuntu Canada team. Bring all your questions.

Ubuntu is an African word that means If it isn't good for one, it's no good at all.

We know the concept best by the phrase: Love your neighbor as yourself and Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It is simply the Law of Love at work in a community.

Add the concept of Contributionism to Ubuntu and it's like adding wings! Contributionism is a plan for harmony, growth, prosperity, freedom!

This is how it works in a nutshell: each person, yes even small children, have something they love to do and that they are willing to contribute a minimum of 3 hours a week of their time doing. So in a small town of 5,000 people, that could be up to 1500 hours of free labour for community projects that benefit all.

People will be gathering to do eco friendly businesses, build solar panels and earthship type homes that are self sustainable and therefore, have no utility costs. The benefit of this type of housing is that a third of the space is for growing food to supply that household with organic vegetables, herbs and fruit. Some people will donate to community gardens, bee keeping, making furniture, clothes and necessities out of recycled goods - the sky is the limit.

Then imagine all these people being able to gather and work on much bigger problems their community may face - closing of schools and hospitals or a drug or gang problem or cleaning up contaminated water - ALL with viable, natural alternatives!

How the money works from these goods and services is also unique. Take the example of an organic honey business. Those who work on this project will have honey for free. Working in harmony and joy does an amazing thing. It allows so much growth that there will be a surplus! It can then be sold to surrounding communities below market value. Best quality honey for below market value? People from surrounding areas will come just for the honey! Soon they will come for ANY product and service offered.

Commerce gradually and naturally gives way to Contributionism where the end result is a community so prosperous that the people eat for free, heat their homes for free, have incredible products and services for free. No business can compete with quality free labour so they too can find a way to introduce Contributionism in their business and their town. An abundance of new projects means that the young people and those needing more work won't have to leave the small town to work for minimum wage in the city or take on extra jobs to feed themselves and their families.

The money works differently too: A third of the profits go to the workers. A third goes back to the investors of the project and a third goes into funding more projects that solve more problems and produces even more businesses. If the school closes, parents do not have to give up all their time to home school. There will be experienced leaders who are passionate about the subjects they teach and business owners, scientists, trade experts who will apprentice kids of all ages (yes this is also for the adults) so they learn skills while excelling in academics. Imagine what is possible with an education like that?

What if the hospital closes or there are not any Wellness centers close by? Leading experts in holistic therapies and modalities will be attracted to offer their services to the people to heal chronic disease and with this plan of joyous, harmonious living - even eradicate the diseases that people in that community have suffered. Truly, the sky is the limit.

This is what true wealth is all about! No more kids in daycare while both parents work. No more suffering in isolation and pain that has caused so much stress, sickness, depression and anxiety. No more hungry families. No more seniors isolated in in nursing homes. People who now have a purpose and time to play, sing, dance, create, prosper!

Nothing is impossible for people who work together in love and harmony for the common good of all.

And now I want you to think of one problem you could solve in your community if this plan was adopted by your Mayor/leader? What idea have you had that is waiting for the right vehicle to work? What passion have you put on the back burner because you don't have enough energy, time or money?

Write down 3 things right now where you could change yourself, which would change your family, your community and then change the world.

I invite you to share those 3 things right now. Or even 3 problems you and your community face right now that have the chance to be transformed with Contributionism.
