"Happiness is not what makes us grateful. It is gratefulness that makes us happy." -- Brother David Steindl-Rast

21-Day Gratitude Challenge 11536 Participants!

Dear Friends,

The overwhelming response to September's 21-Day Kindness Challenge surpassed our wildest dreams! 6000 people, from 98 countries participated and lit up the world with thousands of kind acts and stories. This surge of energy, enthusiasm and connection left us wondering -- what do we do next?!?

It didn't take long to arrive at the perfect answer. Inspired by YOU, we've decided to step it up and launch the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge. Because kindness flows naturally when your heart is full. And how do you fill your heart? The best answer we have to that question is simply: Gratefulness. An attitude of gratitude is a surefire way to fill your heart.

While the Kindness Challenge placed attention on all the ways we can give, the Gratitude Challenge will be geared to make us tune in to all the ways in which we constantly receive. So join us for another transformative three-weeks! The 21-Day Gratitude Challenge will kick off on Nov 7th and culminate fittingly on Thanksgiving Day. The sages of old and the science of modern day are all in agreement about the benefits of gratitude. It's been proven to have a positive effect on the health, happiness and well-being of individuals, families, communities and companies alike. So get ready to start flexing those gratitude muscles! :)

As with the last challenge, you'll receive a daily email with inspiration and ideas. You'll be part of a vibrant on-line community of like-minded people from all over the world, and you'll have a chance to share your experiences, read stories of what others are doing, and support each other's journeys along the way.

Together we will find and celebrate the good in each moment. Register now for the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge.

Change Yourself. Change the World.

In the spirit of service,

The KindSpring Crew

On Gratitude

At age 108, Holocaust survivor Alice Herz Sommer still practices piano for 3 hours every day. At age 104, she had a book written about her life: "A Garden Of Eden In Hell." At age 83, she had cancer. Alice survived the concentration camps through her music, her optimism and her gratitude for the small things that came her way - a smile, a kind word, the sun. When asked about the secret of her longevity, Alice says: "I look where it is good."
