When I was in Tanzania a few weeks ago, I asked the kids in the eighth grade to make thank you cards as an English assignment. To anyone. For anything.
I wanted to share with you this video of 14-year-old Leah reading the thank you note she wrote to the universe. As we prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, I hope it fills your heart with as much hope, love and gratitude as it did mine.
Today, we once again launched Epic Thanks
. I hope you’ll consider sharing your gratitude on the site & making a gift in honor of whatever you’re most thankful for this year. If we are able to raise at least $10,000 USD by ThanksGiving Day to fund cows, chickens, computers, classrooms and more for Leah’s school in Tanzania, a generous donor has agreed to make an additional $5,000 gift to Epic Change. Combined, that’s more than enough to build a classroom, technology lab, or a school farm at the secondary school built from your gratitude last year.
Perhaps you remember the classroom we built from gratitude when we originally launched Epic Thanks as TweetsGiving in 2008. This year again, we plan to commemorate each gift on the walls of Mama Lucy’s school.
We’ve seen time & time again that gratitude changes everything. I really hope you’ll join us by bringing your thankful heart to the party at www.EpicThanks.org
With love & so much gratitude,
