Today’s Solutions: January 30, 2023

What is the most impactful organization in your community? In this week’s Thankful Thursdays prompt, we look at organizations and non-profits that serve our neighborhoods and the global community. This can be an organization that you have been involved with, have been helped by, or simply just admire and respect.

Thankful Thursdays Prompt #2: Write a letter to a non-profit and express gratitude for the work they do.

Need help getting started? We recommend beginning by brainstorming words that describe that non-profit. In your letter, let them know why their work is important and share how and where you have seen the impact of their efforts.

This is the second installation of our Thankful Thursdays series, a collaboration with Lost Art of Love Letters and Santa Barbara Response Network. Each Thursday, we will share a gratitude prompt from Lost Art of Love Letters to help you dive deeper into who and what you are grateful for.

Lost Art of Love Letters, started by artist Sondra Weiss, encourages everyone to practice creative letter writing on a wide variety of topics from mental wellness, social justice, and environmental protection to gratitude and self-love. Love letters from her project have made their way to museums, galleries, aquariums, and even the Climate Action Summit at the United Nations where environmental letters written by global youth were read to world leaders. 

Want to learn more about Thankful Thursdays and Lost Art of Love Letters? Check the video below from Sondra Weiss and share pictures of your love letters with us on social media @optimistdaily and @lostartofloveletters with #ignitecaring.
