National Day of Listening

Give new meaning to the Day after Thanksgiving. Consider becoming a part of the National Day of Listening, sponsored by NPR's StoryCorps project and others.

The National Day of Listening is a day to honor a loved one through listening. It's the least expensive but most meaningful gift you can give this holiday season. You can choose to record a story with anyone you know. This year, StoryCorps has chosen to feature the stories of veterans, active duty military, and their families.

On the day after Thanksgiving, November 23rd, take a few moments to sit down with the people who are important in your life and ask them about their lives. The website offers lots of suggestions about questions to ask. You can even record the stories online through the StoryCorps website at http://nationaldayoflistening.org/participate/.
