When COMMUNITY gathers, great things happen!

About this Event

Not just your usual FUNDRAISER...this is an event done BY and FOR the community, while creating mutual VALUE FOR ALL.

We at Darshan CommUnity really believe the future is in COLLABORATION over COMPETITION, and even though we can climb the mountain of "success" all alone - together we can MOVE MOUNTAINS!

The purpose of this full day gathering is to create meaningful connections through cash-free exchanges, celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Share Your Gift, give you a taste of Darshan CommUnity's new projects, and reveal the exciting news & vision we plan to deliver in 2020.

CommUnity Vision for the Future

The idea is to make this event happen in the same way as the Month Without Money experiment done by Lucie Darshan few months ago. Her (successful) goal was to spend $0 during two months period, relying only on barter, kindness, and generosity of others.

Stepping up this initiative, we are taking it from individual experiment into a community movement. Shifting the focus from ME-to-WE is a foundation for all that we do. The whole event will be based on alternative currency of kindness, generosity, and working TOGETHER as a team. Our promise is to create a win-win scenario, and deliver mutual value to all participants, supporters, and to give back to those who need some extra spark in their lives (not only) this Holiday season.


1. 50% will be used to spread awareness about the Darshan CommUnity and its efforts to create a positive impact in the Bow Valley. We also plan to *kickstart our savings for the development of the online platform (*estimated $20.000 for the website & $30.000 for an app), to help us manage the growing demand for our community initiatives.

2. Second half of the funds will be redistributed to the local community, to give back and bring an extra spark to those who need it the most (not only) this holiday season. We want YOU decide who needs to receive some extra support & love - be it a Christmas project, Charity, or a specific person. You will get a chance to choose a project that's close to your heart, or nominate ANYONE who needs some support, by submitting the story to the We Give Back group created for this reason (please join!).

Come celebrate the collective support, collaboration, the power of our community as a whole, and the uniqueness & individuality of us all.

Let's gather our forces and create something extraordinary, walk in "Ellen's" footsteps, surprise someone, and help to whomever needs it in any way.
