Story Corps National Day of Listening is the Day after Thanksgiving

StoryCorps is declaring November 28, 2008 the first annual National Day of Listening.

Join StoryCorps in the National Day of Listening

This holiday season, ask the people around you about their lives — it could be your grandmother, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. By listening to their stories, you will be telling them that they matter and they won’t ever be forgotten. It may be the most meaningful time you spend this year.

Everyone has a story, and every life counts. Help your family, friends, and community members get involved in the National Day of Listening and use the following resources to spread the word that listening is an act of love.

Do-It-Yourself Guides have everything you need to record your conversation, including simple step-by-step instructions, advice on choosing equipment, and a list of favorite StoryCorps questions.

To get started, download [the] free Do-It-Yourself Guide.

Email Story Corps about your experience.
