Are you interested in learning more about a better way that we can all live together on this planet?
* 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,
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.
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
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.
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
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.
