A global gratitude movement
What is Day of Gratitude?
Day of Gratitude is a positive movement intended to help us live better lives and work with each other much more collaboratively and peacefully. It is intended to help us become more aware that we are all connected, and we are all in this together. Everyone adds value to their communities in their own unique ways, and it takes all of us doing whatever we do for our communities to thrive. We all matter.
Day of Gratitude shines a light on the contributions that people make to our communities through the work that they do.
We invite you to follow us on Facebook and check out our web page for more details about what Day of Gratitude is and how you can get involved. This is the sort of thing that will BENEFIT EVERYONE who participates, so be sure to share this information with your friends, family and co-workers.
We also invite and encourage you to start looking for people in your community to appreciate, and tell them so. Take a pic and share it on Facebook so that the whole world can appreciate them and so they too can benefit from feeling the gratitude.
Gratitude changes everything, and we can’t wait for you to experience it too.
HOW DO WE SHOW OUR GRATITUDE?
Social Media – We look for people to appreciate in our communities who are “on the job.” When we encounter someone doing their job, we express our appreciation for what they do and their contributions to the community. To help spread the gratitude and the Movement, we also take pictures of the people we’re appreciating and share them through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Local Events – Each month, we high-light a particular role in our communities – such as teachers, truck drivers, postal carriers, healthcare workers, sanitation workers, construction workers, administrators, computer programmers, legislators, fire fighters, and so on – and we share our appreciation through Appreciation “Demonstrations” – as well as other activities.
