Generally, it's a lousy news day - world stocks crashing, huge chunks of ice breaking off Greenland, whales dying in Alaska - not a lot of fun.
Imagine my surprise, when I ran into this article on neighborhood networking in Italy. Read it, it's delightful!
And, a terrific model. If I lived in a city, I'd for sure try to launch one of these in my neighborhood; or join one if someone has already launched.
It's simple- a couple of people launched an invitation to a closed group on Facebook; just for people in the neighborhood. Both on Facebook; and with plain paper fliers. Now- instead of a crowd of strangers; many know each other, say hello on the street- and help each other constantly; for free.
Of course this is how neighbors should act - but we rarely do these days.
I love it! You should do it! :-)
