Studies show that consistent positive interactions, particularly ones that involve gratitude, increase happiness and decrease levels of depression.
300 Million people around the world deal with depression.
We desperately need to know that we are loved, valued, and seen- we can't go through life feeling invisible.
What happens if we do nothing?
Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide.
Suicide is the 10th highest cause of death in the USA.
Suicide is the 2nd highest cause of death for people aged 10-34.
1 in 12 College students have a suicide plan in place.
On average in the USA, every 40 seconds someone will commit suicide.
"I woke up to this reality as a little girl. I went to sleep with my best friend and woke up without him the next morning. Learning my dad committed suicide rocked my world. It's the reason why this company exists- because telling people we value and appreciate them really matters."
Fundamentally we believe that physical gratitude can change the world.
And that's why we exist.
Because too many people walk through life not knowing that they're worthy, that they're loved, that they're seen.
And you shouldn't be one of them.
And the people you love shouldn't either.
So say thank you.
Because letting people know we appreciate them really, really matters.
"Thank you for being here. You have no idea how much it means to me that you're even checking us out. If we can inspire you to say thank you then we've succeeded. Thank YOU for being here."
