2nd Annual 1000gratitudes
Gratitude Event Infiltrates Social Media with Positivity
Take to the internet on Wednesday, February 11th armed with your personal gratitude and the #1000gratitudes hashtag and you can join a group of people collectively posting 1000 gratitudes. This is the second annual event which began last year when Our Gratitude Collective founder, Antonia Montoya, posted her 1000th gratitude post on Facebook and challenged others to join her. This year’s event will not only take place online but will also include a gratitude party from 4-9pm in Albuquerque. The party brings together like-minded people for meditation, a gratitude dance class based on ecstatic dance, facilitated discussions, collective art projects, and culminates in a two-hour dance party. Throughout the event there will be gratitude-sharing, a potluck, a craft table for creating gratitude boards and even Valentine’s to thank your loved ones. The Collective will also hit the streets before the event with acts of gifting and gratitude. Margaret Cousins said, “Appreciation can change a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.” This event is your opportunity to put your gratitude into words and into action.
Location: The Kosmos, 1715 5th St. NW, Albuquerque. Time: 4-9pm. Cost: $5 (kids get in for free). The online event will take place all day. Scroll down for more information.
