Savannah Earth Day
The weekly Gratitude Circle in the Squares were created opportunities for people to share their gratitude offline!
In 2013, we began meeting in the squares for our weekly ritual in the the historic district of Savannah. The circles started at 12:12 and done by 12:30 — gratitude doesn’t have to take a long time. These weekly gatherings happened for three years from November 2013 – 2016.
“This experience or experiment has inspired me in so many ways! I had no idea who would show up and I’ve never did one alone. They even happened even when I’m couldn’t be there! We met on Christmas and New Year’s Day, in the rain, in the heat, in the cold. Weather didn’t stop us. We even met at midnight on a warm summer night in 2014! Friendships were created, random strangers joined us, lots of selfies were taken, and free hugs were always given.”

After the 2016 Presidential Election, we collected the politicians yard signs and painted positive messages. It’s a great way to re-use old yard signs and share positive energy!
FCW Society is dedicated to promoting and exploring feminist issues and interests while spreading the word and celebrating the fact that women are so fucking cool! Respect! Empower! Celebrate!
The FCW Society was founded in 2005 in NYC. We meet for brunch the 1st Sunday of the month in a member’s home. The FCW Society is not run by any one member. It was founded in 2005 by Joanne Morton and exists today because of all of the fucking cool women in the world!
Joanne was inspired to create this group from a video she made in film school. Since moving to Savannah, Joanne and FCW friends have been producing annual fundraisers for Planned Parenthood.
