Free Money Day is a global social experiment held annually on September 15, the anniversary of the Lehman Brothers' 2008 filing for bankruptcy. Participants hand out money to strangers, asking them to pass half onto someone else. Money is exchanged in person, left as a surprise for someone to find, or sent digitally. Founded in 2011 by Donnie Maclurcan, co-founder and co-director of the Post Growth Institute, Free Money Day is a social experiment that is meant to explore people's attachment to money and remind people that it must freely circulate in a successful economy, as noted by Maclurcan.
