Gratitude Tree 2011

In the Light Box shop, we have a beautiful tree. To this tree, participants of the workshops are invited to attach a single piece of gratitude, using coloured paper and ribbons. The gratitude hangs off the tree  like leaves, it’s quite something.

We created a volunteer job and a half by asking Rosanna to take off all the gratitude from The Happiness Project 2011, to make way for all the coming Gratitude in 2012. The tree was bursting with Gratitude, and we thought it was time for a fresh start for Gratitude collection. Rosanna also typed up every single piece of gratitude from the tree, and we can’t thank herenough for her patience and dedication!
