Here at Repair the World November is Gratitude Month – a month dedicated to giving thanks for everything we are grateful for. And this week it’s also Hanukkah! To celebrate, Repair the World presents 8 Nights of Giving Thanks: tips and thoughts for filling the Festival of Lights with gratitude.

On our last night of giving thanks, it is time to think about going forward. How can we bring our gratitude into the rest of the year, and into next year as well? The very best way is to become involved in a cause that is important to you. By joining a club or an organization, or volunteering regularly, you’ll gain greater appreciation for the world around you while making a difference. It’s a gratitude win-win.
