If you are reading this you probably already know about GMOs, but you also probably have a lot of friends or family who either don't or seem like they don't want to. What if we shared with them in a FUN way and have GMO Movie Nights across America on Saturday night, March 30, in two weeks, with GMO Free snacks in the comfort of your own home?
Here's the thing. It's not up to someone else. They are not going to find out about GMOs from their grocery store, mainstream TV news or doctor. Those channels are all too heavily influenced by the drugs companies like Bayer, Astra Senca Syngenta and Phizer Pharmaceutical Upjohn ( parent company of Monsanto) which ALL make chemicals, herbicides and pesticides. Those very profitable chemicals are sprayed on our food that our livestock and we eat, and if we get sick they also make the very profitable drugs which they sell to "make us better" in our grocery stores, to our doctors and on TV ads in between Big Bang Theroy and the Nightly News. Almost no one from those channels are going to tell your friends about the health risks of GMOs. The few who have tried, for instance, two reporters from Fox News, were fired. ( see my Moms Across America You Tube Channel)
So it's up to us to share with them. And it's not hard. All it takes is sending out an email, or if you want to get fancy, an evite. If you really want it to be successful, call your friends. Say or write "I am inviting you to share a very special and important evening together. Please come and view a movie with me about food and health. This is the most important thing you can do."
Have ten people to your home and just show Robyn O'Brien's 18 minute Ted Talk " Patriotism on a Plate" if you just want to get their feet wet. Show the ten minute version of Genetic Roulette on YouTube if they want more. Or to go for the whole enchilada, show the full version of Genetic Roulette available at www.geneticroulette.com. When you have just 10 people over and show them this movie, they will get it. They will also be compelled to share with their family and friends. If they only share with 5 people and those 5 only share with 5 and all of those 5 only share with 5 people...you will be personally responsible for informing 1270 people about GMO's in your town!!! Most likely hundreds or thousands more!
Imagine if all across America we have GMO Movie night on Saturday March 30 and hundreds of thousands of people find out about GMOs?
Why March 30? It's two weeks away. Just enough time to invite people and have it be soon enough so that the time is now. You know what happens when we procrastinate...it just doesn't happen. It is also Easter weekend and alot of you will be with your family. Bring the movie, let them know "Hey Saturday night let's all get together and watch this movie about health that I have. I love you guys and it's really important that we watch this together." If they don't want to watch a whole movie , show Robyn O'Briens 18 minute version on YouTube. Insist on it in a loving way.
Also, I am hesitant to even say this, but honestly, my own personal side note is, its my birthday. There is nothing I want more than for hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people to find out about GMOs. A lot of people have sent me emails and thanked me for what I am doing to organize a national event to raise awareness about GMOs and get them labeled. Totally not necessary, but appreciated. The thing is, I am compelled, I will do this no matter what. But... you could thank me and express your support for this movement by hosting a movie night! YOU can do this! You can love on your family by hosting a movie night! You can form closer bonds with your friends by hosting a movie night! It really is fun.
I had a GMO Free Potluck Party and showed Robyn O'Briens video and Genetic Roulette ten minute version to 30 people. Everyone brought some food and met new people...you know that awesome feeling you have when your friend from forever meets your new friend and they hit it off like gang busters? It's just that all night long. People left with a whole new view, shocked but also inspired and empowered. Most importantly, they felt connected with people.
It really is easy. Buy some organic and NON GMO verified snacks, like Kettle Chips, Annie's organic bunnies, Cadia organic salsa, have a bowl of organic fruit out, serve some drinks without high fructose corn syrup, like Hansen's and keep all the packaging out so they can see where you got them.
Now, what you might be thinking is that people are going to think you are some weird radical activist. That it's not normal to have people over to watch a movie over about food or "issues". You are right it's not normal. But what is happening with our food is radical. We have a foreign protein in 70% of our food and most people don't know about it. If you can set aside your concern for what people are going to think about you and focus on your commitment to them, like..that they are healthy and that they are informed to make their own choice, if you come from that, than nothing you can say or do is weird. Inviting people over to watch a movie about health and food is one of the most loving things you can do. Most people see food as love. So have a conversation about food and love. The time is now. It doesn't matter what your house looks like or if you have a lot of snacks. They will be so moved, touched and inspired by what you show them that nothing else will matter except the love you share.
