We are on a mission to use gratitude and saying ‘thank you’ to connect communities, help build a narrative of kindness and celebrate the organisations and individuals that enrich our communities. A national day dedicated to this will ensure that ‘thank you’ becomes part of our DNA!
8.7 million people taking part in Thank You Day shows the power of gratitude, providing communities with the opportunity to connect and show kindness towards one another. But this is more than that. Thank You Day helped to bridge divides, it was an inclusive day built for everyone and acted as a stimulant for year round participation in our communities.
ICM polling for Thank YouDay conducted on 2,018 adults across the UK, suggests the impact of Thank You Day was significant and key findings in the infographics below show the impact the day had.
We want Thank You Day and the key message of showing gratitude to connect with each other and help build kindness to be something we all commit to throughout the year. Let’s continue to reach out to each other, thank those in our lives and in our communities. Roll on Thank You Day 2023!
