30 days of gratitude

Melina Young on September 21st, 2012 1 Comment

Yesterday, while at the eWomenNetwork luncheon I heard about a challenge to take 1 month and let people know that you are grateful for them. How? The 30 Day Gratitude Challenge.

How does it work? Pick 30 different people that you are grateful for and send 1 card a day for 30 days. You have to send to 30 different people and it can be anyone. And, it has to be a real live card that someone gets in the mail. It isn’t a time to ask for other things for you, just let someone know that you care about them and that someone is thinking of them. It sounds pretty awesome to me, so I am going to do it! My biggest possible problem to completing the challenge? I don’t know that I have physical addresses for 30 people! That somewhat scary thought aside, I think it will be nice. So, if you get a card from me, know that this is why. If not, I probably appreciate you, but don’t have your address!

Want to learn more and take the challenge yourself? There is a video and everything you can watch at Awaken Gratitude.

Good luck and happy gratefulness!

My name is Melina Young and I am the director of marketing at Verity Credit Union. I love everything to do with marketing, advertising, public relations and social media – especially all the research that goes into making a product or service really work for our members and making sure the right people hear about it. In addition to my time spent marketing, I have a blog and write about celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with in 2010. Basically, I can’t eat any of those foods we all love that are made with wheat, barley or rye.

I have also recently started running and completed my first 5k in 2011. Some people may not know that I used to do a lot of acting, dancing and singing in my life. I was in a Nike commercial with Gary Payton in junior high (if anyone ever finds the footage please send it my way!) and I used to compete as an opera singer in high school. I almost majored in musical theater in college, but I’m very glad with my decision to study marketing!

    This is such a good idea, Melina, I think I will do it too! It just sounds like something that would make the day of the person receiving it and make you feel good in the process. It’s on!
