The Gratitude Graffiti Project – webinar

September 17
10 – 11 am

Each year, in communities all across the nation, the Gratitude Graffiti Project inspires new perspectives on how great life can be. This year we’re excited to help the project spread across the state of Washington as our fall wellness campaign.

The Gratitude Graffiti Project is a practice of purposeful appreciation of one’s life through interactive art and other activities. The project encourages participants to think about sources of gratitude in their lives and then provides outlets to express thoughts of thankfulness.

This campaign will genuinely engage employees in your workplace in meaningful ways. And, if you choose, you can take the project out to your community by creating “Gratitude Stops” in shops, schools, libraries, restaurants, offices, and elsewhere.

During this webinar you’ll:

  • Meet Gratitude Graffiti founders Candice and Lucila, hear how the Project came to be, where it’s spread to, and the impact it’s had on individuals and communities.
  • Learn how expressing gratitude enhances well-being.
  • Get all the information you need to run the campaign in your workplace, and if you choose, in your community.

Please join us for an introduction to this unique Thanksgiving wellness challenge!

This webinar is for Trust members only.
