To create a healthy and positive world.
Thankful is based on the science-backed principle that practicing gratitude increases overall individual happiness and can improve mental health and wellness.
This innovative new model merges philanthropy and business to spread the power of gratitude, via licensed products that give back, activations that spark thankful thinking, and harness the power of gratitude for good.
Gratitude is the single best predictor of wellbeing and good relationships - beating out love, hope, creativity and 24 other impressive traits. (Scientific American)
how we work
Tapping into the science of positive psychology, Thankful creates opportunities to provide Thankful Moments via an innovative business model that merges a product licensing program, global cause awareness campaigns, and a nonprofit arm. Creating the first multi-product, multi-cause social impact brand capable of spreading thankfulness and measurable impact.
Thankful partners with brands to develop responsible products bearing the trademarked ‘Thankful’ name, creating moments of thankfulness for consumers and generating revenue for the Thankful organization.
Thankful donates a percentage of revenue to its non-profit arm, the Thankful Foundation, who then distributes funds to other non-profits who have the expertise, programming, and infrastructure in place to make measurable social impact.
Ongoing, Thankful generates social good initiatives centered around global challenges. These multifaceted initiatives, with the addition of a products-that-give-back component due to Thankful’s licensing program, create real and lasting social impact.
Thankful improves our own individual health. Studies show that gratitude boosts our mood, improves our sleep, enhances our relationships, and supports our immune system.
Further studies have shown that thankfulness strengthens relationships and communities. Neuroscience indicates that when a person experiences the feeling of being grateful, the networks in the brain associated with understanding others' perspectives, interpersonal touch, and cultivating empathy are activated.
Being thankful is scientifically shown to augment mental health & overall wellness
