Want The Gratitude Graffiti Project in your hometown? Here’s how:
Timeframe: We ask that because this is The Gratitude Graffiti Project, that in the U.S. you do this within the 40 days before the national holiday of Thanksgiving. In 2013, the United States will celebrate Thanksgiving on November 28th.
a. Do you have to do the project for forty days? No, but around Thanksgiving is ideal. We had chosen the magic number ’40’ to give people a chance to build up a habit of practicing daily gratitude and most people need 21-40 days of practice to begin a new habitual behavior and stick with it. The project is merely a catalyst to practice being grateful on a daily basis; to which doing the project for any number of days could be beneficial but 21 days would be highly recommended.
b. What if we don’t live in America and do not celebrate a national thanksgiving holiday? You can still start The Gratitude Graffiti Project any time of year. There are so many benefits to practicing daily gratitude and we support your efforts to create a healthier and happier community.
- Local storefront businesses
- Local libraries
But the opportunities are endless! our parameters are the following:
- The project implementation should be SIMPLE and FUN
- The project should be accessible to everyone and anyone who wants to participate. That means that it is open to all to express gratitude regardless of age, ethnicity or nationality. Feel free to
- Allow for people to write what they are grateful for, without censorship (unless they are writing comments that are inappropriate or offensive then feel free to intervene or monitor).
Stay connected: All you need is one store, coffee shop or library to get it started. And if there is just one more out there, that is terrific! Most of all we want you to HAVE FUN and experience the sense of community that this project creates.
