We love this new project from StoryCorps; grab a recorder and join in!
On the day after Thanksgiving, StoryCorps asks all Americans to take an hour to record an interview with a loved one using recording equipment readily available in most homes–a cell phone, computer, pen and paper, or video camera–along with StoryCorps’ free Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide.
We hope that civil conversation within families and communities on the National Day of Listening can help heal some of the political and cultural divides in our country today. The National Day of Listening coincides with Black Friday and provides a great, noncommercial alternative to shopping sprees. Many people like to record National Day of Listening interviews and give them as gifts because it is a meaningful, cost-free way for families to connect during the busy holiday season.
It’s our hope that you will join us in spreading the word about this new holiday tradition.
