Gratitude Event Infiltrates Social Media with Positivity
Join a group of people collectively posting 1,000 gratitudes on the internet with the #1000gratitudes hashtag on February 11. This annual event began last year when Our Gratitude Collective founder, Antonia Montoya, posted her one thousandth gratitude post on Facebook and challenged others to join her.
This year’s event will not only take place all day online but also includes a gratitude party being held from 4 to 9 p.m. in Albuquerque. The party brings together like-minded people for meditation, a gratitude dance class based on ecstatic dance, facilitated discussions, collective art projects, and culminates in a two-hour dance party. Throughout the event there will be gratitude-sharing, a potluck, and a craft table for creating gratitude boards.
The Collective will also hit the streets before the event with acts of gifting and gratitude. “Renowned fiction author Margaret Cousins once said, ‘Appreciation can change a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.’ This event is your opportunity to put your gratitude into words and into action,” says Montoya.
Gratitude party cost: $5 (kids free) Location: The Kosmos, 1715 5th St. NW, Albuquerque. For more information, visit OurGratitudeCollective.com or call Antonia Montoya at 505-333-9336.
