There are so many wonderful people in the Gratitude Planet community, and I appreciate the many contributions made daily by people toward increasing positive energy and gratitude across our planet. Today I would like to introduce you all to a really caring and giving person, Dave, The Gratitude Guy. Dave, acting on his inspiration to do something positive and make a difference, created something called the Gratitude Tour in 2009. This tour involved Dave and his Grat Pack friends doing random acts of kindness, and encouraging others to do the same. The purpose of the Gratitude Tour was  to remind each one of us of the importance of having daily gratitude in our lives, and to give back by doing random acts of kindness with people they met along the journey. On the 2009 Gratitude Tour in San Diego, CA, they handed out kindness cards requesting whomever they met to “Pay It Forward” and to continue doing kind-full acts for others. Dave has also created something he calls the Gratitude Ball, which once held in your hand and squeezed is a powerful reinforcement tool; it is a gentle reminder to feel positive energy and to put yourself in the right state of mind immediately.

And now Dave has set out to hold the 2010 Gratitude Tour on the east coast in May. It will begin in Miami and travel north to New Your City. At the present time, he is in the process of finding sponsors. His goal is to raise about $3,000 dollars, and wants to support a charitable organization and donate a portion of the proceeds to help their cause. The sponsors would receive advertising on the van, video, website, and on the Gratitude Balls they are passing out. He would promote any business with a logo or message on the back of the ball. You might want to donate to the Tour as a great way to say thank you to your customers, employees, friends, and family. Also, Dave is filming a video during the tour to showcase the Gratitude community to the world.  He wants to show what people are doing to make a difference in their life and the people around them. His vision is “to educate everyone that the best way for us to value our present day happiness and gratitude for what we have is to live up to our potential.  Being grateful for what you have is mandatory if you are ever to be happy.” His main purpose of this Gratitude Tour is to surround himself with positive people, learn from their experiences, inspire others, and make a needed contribution to society. Dave says that “If more people made a decision to be grateful for what they have now, great changes would occur, because I believe that Gratitude is the key that opens up the door to happiness.”

To help support the 2010 Gratitude Tour and the great work of Dave and his Grat Pack, Gratitude Planet has created a new page to keep our readers and subscribers updated on his news and progress. You will find this page at the top of the tool bar, and on the sidebar as well. The page is titled, appropriately, Gratitude Tour 2010. Thanks to Dave, and may the Gratitude Tour spread love and kindness far and wide. Check back for his updates! Enjoy this most amazing day!  Chris-GP

      Maybe we can take something from Dave’s example and start our own “Grat Pack” here in So. Cal! Maybe even do a Gratitude Tour of our own!
