Givitas for Young Professionals:
A New Community for Alumni of the Reciprocity Ring
Most people who have participated in a Reciprocity Ring or Givitas community remember the experience, even years later. They remember that asking for help produces amazing results when it’s done in a safe place. They remember that it feels great to help others.
That’s why we created Givitas for Young Professionals. We want to give you a place to exchange help with other, likeminded people.
- Best practices
- And anything else you can think of that you need.
We have a number of other, free groups for specialized interests. Please feel free to join any of these as well.
