The Success of Thankfulness

The Success of Thankfulness

It's Thanksgiving today in the USA. A holiday that has been butchered by consumerism and materialistic ways (see Black Friday tomorrow and Cyber Monday a few days after).

Yet, the idea of being thankful is not just a novelty. Did you know that thankful people are happier, wealthier, and more giving than those who do not regularly think through all they have to be thankful for? [Read about the health benefits of thankfulness on WebMD]

Wherever you are in the world today, take a moment to think of a few things that you are thankful for. If you'd like to, please share them with us via email or on twitter.

We are thankful for you—a dreamer, full of dare and courage, and a faithful supporter. May this holiday season be full of thanks and much success for you and yours.

Also here's an inspiring video of a boy receiving a few gifts. If only we could all be this thankful when someone gives us something.

P.S. If you’re in Harare this evening, we are hosting our 1 year birthday for Pitch Night. It starts at 6pm at the Celebration Centre in The Basement. More details. We hope to see you there!
