lets keep the jubilee spirit alive ..

June 6, 2012

Over the last 4 days, I have been amazed to see how the people of our wonderful country have come together in a host of extraordinary ways to celebrate 60 years of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign. Overwhelmed by the occasion I, myself, was brought to tears listening to The Commonwealth band signing the Jubilee song outside Buckingham Palace on Monday night.

From parties to pageants; beacons to song; celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee have taken place across the length and breath of Britain, as neighbours, friends and strangers have all joined together with a renewed sense of pride and strength for our communities and country.

So how can we keep this jubilant spirit alive?

Sixty years ago, when our Queen took the throne, we too lived in austere times. Back then, to get things done people relied on their neighbours for help and knew who up their street had some long ladders to borrow, or who could help fix a leaky tap. Ecomodo.com wants to help revive this altruistic attitude by simply bringing people back together to share.

It’s simple to get started ..

1. Sign up to Ecomodo.com. It’s free to join!

2. Think of anything you can lend- it may be a drill, ladders or even a chocolate fountain. Perhaps you have a skill to share or just some time to help a neighbour out. If you’re not sure what to lend then get inspired or browse items to lend.

3. Add your items to Ecomodo or post a wanted ad for something you would like to borrow and we will automatically other members in your local area know about your new listings. If you’re not sure what to lend or borrow – sign up to keep updated on what’s locally available to you.

4. Invite you neighbours, friends and work colleagues to join Ecomodo and even start a Lending circle.
