Posted by challahbackgirl on February 14, 2011

National Day of Unplugging 2011 Sundown, Friday, March 4 to Sundown, Saturday, March 5Join the Sabbath Manifesto for the National Day of Unplugging 2011: Sundown, Friday, March 4 to Sundown, Saturday, March 5

The Sabbath Manifesto is a creative project designed to slow down lives in an increasingly hectic world.

We’ve created 10 core principles completely open for your unique interpretation. We welcome you
to join us as we carve a weekly timeout into our lives.

Are you ready to join us for the National Day of Unplugging?

Can you take the unplug challenge and put down your cell phone, sign out of email, stop your Facebook and Twitter updates?  If so, sign up here!

For 24 hours, starting at sundown Friday March 4, 2011, people across the nation will reclaim time, slow down their lives and reconnect with friends, family, the community and themselves. Can’t resist the temptation? We’ve created cell phone sleeping bags.

The Sabbath Manifesto’s principles were created for individual styling, but for one day we are asking you to take on the challenge of Principle Number 1: AVOID TECHNOLOGY.
