reaction to all this consumption madness

Isn’t time to say I have enough?
I find it so strange that we still have ‘black friday’ ‘summer sales’  ‘christmas sales’ ‘singles day’ ‘mid season sale’
Vulgar shopping days – which trick us to overuse – resolve each other. After this Black Friday we all shop like crazy in order to give away stuff for Christmas and the day after christmas eve:
Christmas trade begins – which is expected to hit new record in Sweden with 79.7 billion kronor spent.
79.7 billion!

I’ve gotten texts and emails regarding the ‘black friday sale’ for days.
I can scroll by and delete, which I do.
But wanted to share how I feel about it all. It certainly makes me sick.

It’s time to re think. This week I’m gonna focus on giving more than usual, I wanna help others in need. Gonna go through my wardrobe and rinse out once again. Even thou I’ve done that for the past 6 months, sure there’s more to give. Food wise, we have enough to make meals for each day without ‘buying’ lots more.

If you have the need to spend money, please invest in planting a tree, that truly makes a change.
Here’s a link to Läkarmissionen. 50 sek will last to plant 10 trees. Amazing right!?
