Send the One Dollar Message

Give one dollar (or on euro, or on peso, or ... etc.) to one person of your own choosing. If you you give it to your friend Sarah W., write somewhere on the dollar, "Sarah W. is more important than this dollar." If you give it to a stranger write, "Brother, sister, you are more important than this dollar."

You can give it anonymously and write your note on behalf of another person you care about: "Joseph M., grandfather, is more important than this dollar," "Lisa J. is more important than this dollar." If you don't want to hand it to someone, leave it in a tip jar, or in front of a bank, or in someone's mailbox. The dollars will circulate, with these messages written on them, awakening just a bit every person who comes into the possession of one.

The amount is not important, but rather the message of solidarity, sharing, brotherhood and humanity the dollar message embodies.

Then, if you can afford it, give a one dollar message of this kind every week for a year.
