OTTAWA’S REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET
Volunteer Sign up / Open Media Day
What is a really really free market (RRFM)? An RRFM market is a place where anyone, for any reason, can drop off any good reusable stuff they don’t want and/or take good reusable stuff they do want. Everything is FREE… like a big pop-up department store except absolutely everything is absolutely free.
This Saturday we are holding an open planning/briefing forum and volunteer sign up day for Ottawa’s Really Really Free Market (ORRFM). The ORRFM event, run successfully spring and fall since 2010, has grown to the size where we have recognized the need to create an official committee to plan and run the events.
Our site is being re-organized. We are sponsored by FullCircles, Ottawa’s premiere online Freecycling community, and supported by St. Margaret’s Anglican Church, TrashNothing.com, UsedOttawa, Desjardins Group and hope to welcome even more members from the local Ottawa Community.
We have reorganized and we need team leaders. We are adding more professional elements to the event as well as receiving further support from the local Vanier Community.
We would like to invite all local media, residents and community associations to attend. Host Kelly Ann Wilson from FullCircles Ottawa, founder of Ottawa’s Really Really Free Market, would like to welcome all who would like information and to explain the concept of sustainability and how Free Markets benefit many in the local community as well as the entire city.
Father William Farley from St. Margaret’s Anglican Church and Lisa Higgs from Used Ottawa will be available to answer any questions that anyone may have about the event. Both Father Farley and Lisa have become involved in the success of the market and represent the hosting community as well as the over all residents of the city.
Our volunteer Coordinator Lisa Latulip will sign up volunteers and take your information or, if you are unable to attend the meeting, you can e-mail Lisa.Latulip@FullCircles.org to sign up privately or receive more information.
We would like to introduce the RRFM concept to the community and to increase community awareness of the kinds of stuff that can be redirected via the market to reduce recycling impact, and to increase our community’s GNH index (Gross National Happiness).
Freecycling creates a fun world of opportunity. Everyone is welcome to attend.
