The Thankfulness Project
Goal: To lift up NZer's mental health by promoting the daily use of Thankfulness
What the Thankfulness Project is about:
Thankfulness is great for your Mental Healthiness.
When you think about what you do have and what is going well instead of what you don't have and what is going wrong, you will have a happier and more optimistic day.
