We’re almost at the halfway point for submitting stories to the Share Or Die Storytelling Contest. We’ve received several more great stories. Here are the entries from the past three weeks:
Gabriel Stempinski is a road warrior. Not only did Couchsurfing change his travels, but it introduced him to the love of his life. Story (and video!) at Building a Shareable Life Together.
"Canberra's Sharing Tree" refers to an old fashioned “phone tree” that Nick Chapman helped create in pre-Internet days in Australia to share resources – including co-parenting – among a group of mostly young people.
In "A Chance Ride", Kristin Hugo recounts an unfavorable rideshare that was rescued with a stroke of luck.
Nathan Rubin tells about sharing his heart and words of encouragement in "Encouraging Sharing Through Encouragement".
- Marcella Cook uses social media to connect with others, help the local community, and even practice random acts of kindness in "Surprise Birthday through Twitter".
Take a moment to read some of the entries received so far, and leave a comment and vote for stories that inspire or delight you.
Please enter the contest by telling your story of sharing. Let’s tell our story together and help push the movement forward, while earning a chance to win up to $1,000 for your favorite sharing service or nonprofit.
