2014 Virtual Event
Very Little Effort ~ Big Ripples of Delight ~ Making the Gratitude-Fun connection!
To Play: Collect thank you cards that call out to you. If possible let the cards choose you. Say YES to all cards that jump out at you. There may even be a card that could be turned into a gratitude card. Follow your inspirations. We’ll gather 12 cards in total, one for each month; though 4 or 5 to choose from at the beginning will add to the creativity. OK to make your own cards, if you like. You don’t have to know who they are going to go to. Each month we’ll share a fun, unique focus on who or where to send one card.
Enjoy the selection of cards, know that we’ll be doing something creative with them each month, together. Giggle over the affirmation of something wonderful that is going to come your way. Invite family and friends to play. Share your experience, feelings, delights below or on our community Facebook Page.
We will Send one card on the last day of each month. An inspired and fun focus will be shared several days ahead.
First Play is Friday, January 31st.
