Whether you unwrapped the gift of your dreams, or all you got was a bag of gelt from your great aunt Esther, someone thought about you and deserves to be thanked. And we don’t mean a text or an e-card. Now’s the time to break out the stamps and send a real, handwritten thank you note!

 

8 Nights of Giving Thanks: Let People Know You Appreciate Them

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.

Do you ever feel under-appreciated? Do you ever find yourself thinking that all your hard work has gone unnoticed? We’ve all been there. And together, we can all change that!

On the fourth night of giving thanks, make a commitment to give someone a compliment every day. Yep, every single day. Like the mailman’s tie? Tell him! Appreciate the sandwich your friend shared with you the other day when you forgot to bring yours? Let them know how generous they are. Think your coworker’s been doing an awesome job lately? Make their day with a compliment. (And maybe, if you’re feeling super generous, bring them a cupcake while you’re at it.) Show the people that you’re close to, or even those you do not know that you are grateful for them. You will make their day, and yours too.
