Swap Ideas Day

Swap Ideas Day

When : September 10th

Swap Ideas Day encourages us to share and trade ideas and concepts. As you fully participate in this day, we think you will get plenty of good ideas to put to use in your everyday life. Some will be so good, that you will want to pass them along, (or swap them) to others.

Sharing is good. Ideas are a good thing, too. Putting the two together should produce a real winner of a day, eh!?

Hey, I've got an idea on how to celebrate this special day? Lets swap a few ideas between each other!!

Have a happy Swap Ideas Day!
