September 21st is World Gratitude Day!

World Gratitude Day
September 21st is #WorldGratitudeDay! Gratitude turns what we have into enough. Take a moment today to stop and count your blessings. Do the same thing tomorrow, the next day, and the next!

Gratitude becomes even stronger when it's shared. Whether it's those close to you or total strangers, with the busyness of day-to-day life, we can often forget to remember to give our thanks to those who deserve it.

If you don't know where to start: we made a list. Consider this a small reminder of all the people you might see or communicate with in everyday life. While every person on here might not resonate with you, we hope you'll find at least one that you'd like to thank on this special day!
