A Day of CommUnity

Join us for a day of CommUnity on the passing of 10 years since 9/11.

A Day of CommUnity is a collective fundraiser presented by LoveATX benefiting local community organizations (see list below). We will be...

* providing a place for local community and organizations to connect and share
* sharing information about healthy, creative, conscious, and sustainable living
* encouraging involvement and collaboration within the local community

The LoveATX mission is to empower the Austin community and support local economy. A Day of CommUnity will feature Austin-local organizations and artists creating a healthy, conscious, and sustainable culture. We believe real change comes when well informed individuals confront their responsibility to develop well informed masses.
