11th of January is considered the International Thank-You day.
We often take a lot of things for granted so we wanted our first project of the year to focus on taking a step back and appreciating the people around us. It is the perfect chance to express the gratitude for all the little, mundane favours and niceties.
To make people aware of this day and to encourage reflection we distributed cards where someone could write in a thing they were thankful for and give it to someone special.
This time we decided to host the event in the town Novigrad. At first most people seemed to be confused by the existence of such a holiday and even asked if they should be paying for the cards. But once we explained it further a lot seemed at least amused by the idea so we would call it a success.
We would also like to encourage people to express more thankfulness even outside of special holidays!
