Top 10 of 2019

As we finish off 2019, we want to take a few moments to reflect on the year and share with your out top 10 posts from the year. Together we had an incredible impact on communities, cities and individuals through our ebooks, regular weekly publishing, speaking, and events. All of that work comes from a small staff of four people working just four days a week, along with our partners, board members, readers and volunteers. We created a short video recapping the year.

You can show your support for Shareable by making a year-end tax-deductible contribution today! Help us kick off the new year and the new decade on solid ground.
