Notice of the “Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day & Week”
This year marks the seventh anniversay of UsuryFree Day (November 13th, 2011) and UsuryFree Week (November 13th - 19th, 2011). UsuryFree Day was first celebrated in Tamworth, Ontario on November 13th, 2005 in honour of the first anniversary of the Tamworth Hours project which was launched on November 13th, 2004.
One of the big issues of that first UsuryFree Day was to honour and promote Tamworth Hours as a vehicle to encourage consumers to spend their money locally insead of with the giant, trans-national corporations. The words “usury” and “usuryfree” were little known and “usuryfree living” was almost unimaginable.
On UsuryFree Day and during UsuryFree Week each year there have been workshops and seminars with guest speakers who re-educate those who are ready and willing to be re-educated about (a) the many problems associated with the design flaw of usury as the killer machine within our orthodox, economic system and (b) the optimal solution for we-the-people - to create and spend our own usuryfree personal or community currency.
We have come a long way in the last seven years. The awakening is well underway as we progress into this 21st Century. As their (the bankers’) orthodox, economic system of usury-based, debt money falters and entire nations are going broke and bankrupt, more and more usuryfree creatives are recognizing the importance of we-the-people learning how to create and spend our own usuryfree community currencies as a complement with our diminishing amounts of federal cash.

UsuryFree Day is expected to become even more popular than Earth Day as people learn the 'truth' about the problems associated with usury and the solutions as offered by usuryfree creatives. Did you know that Earth Day has become one of the most popular global celebration to date, with an estimated one billion people participating in the activities in thousands of places all over planet earth.
By the way, the first Earth Day was on April 22nd, 1970. When will there be one billion+ usuryfree creatives celebrating UsuryFree Day? Let's make it happen at an even faster pace!!
The usuryfree community currencies are commonly referred to as the 'economic lifeboats' that we will need to rely upon when their usury-based Titanic goes down. Let's make this Seventh Annual UsuryFree Day & Week widely known through the process of viral marketing by 'word of mouth' and by 'word of mouse.'
