Gratitude is never more top-of-mind than during the holiday season, but are we actually expressing it? While an attitude of gratitude is often difficult to muster up amid the holiday stress, #ThankList from American Greetings remedies that by providing a quick and easy, but very impactful, way to connect with the important people in your life as you share thankfulness.
To create your own #ThankList, just share the names of the people for whom you’re thankful on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook (and don’t forget to add the hashtag #ThankList). Much like a bucket list of things you want to accomplish in your lifetime, a #ThankList is a list of people you want to thank to feel alive.
Additionally, during this season of gratitude and giving back we will be making a special donation to longtime community partner, United Way. Between November 1 and November 30, we will donate $1 to United Way Worldwide for each #ThankList shared on social media (for a maximum donation of $30,000). As we look forward to sharing a Thanksgiving meal with loved ones, it’s fitting that the funds donated during this campaign will be allocated for hunger prevention.
While 71 percent of Americans say something causes them stress during the holidays, creating your own ThankList can contribute to a happier holiday season.
