Acts of Sharing Android App Phone

We’ve been busy this summer concocting a few delights for each of you, and for those of you who are new, welcome, we hope these new additions will only enhance your Acts of Sharing experience!

We’ve just completed our Android app, which enables you to take Acts of Sharing with you wherever you go.  Like our iPhone app, you can scan items you want or have and add them to your collection, or, while shopping on the go, you can scan items you’re looking at acquiring and see whether a friend has it BEFORE you buy it!  We want to provide you with the ability to acquire what you need in the way that makes the most sense for you, wherever you are.

We’ve also recently finished our newest feature, Acts of Sharing Opportunities, which notifies you of where you can share and meet a need within your cities and communities on Acts of Sharing. We wanted to establish a way for you to know when someone you’re connected to at your university community, for example, is looking for an item that you have in your collection, while continuing to make your privacy top priority.  In short, we want to show you where the need is, and give you the option of meeting that need!

We’re in the midst of doing plenty more to improve and simplify to help you acquire what you need!  Thank you for your belief in the culture we are creating together, big things are ahead!

Keep Sharing!


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
