World’s First Gratitude Parade

September 21, 2014
Cambridge, MA

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

To be held on September 21, 2014, in conjunction with the International Day of Gratitude, the vision of the Gratitude Parade is to unite people of all races, religions, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, political viewpoints, abilities, and ages to consciously create, uplift and celebrate concepts of gratitude.

Be a spectacle! Join the parade with your friends and loved ones! Come with your group and carry a banner, come in costume, come alone in a bathing suit and carry a sign, come as you are and walk with appreciation … However you get there, however you arrive, you will be joining hundreds of people creating well being in the world by publicly expressing their gratitude. Spread the word! Tell your friends, tell your family and tell your coworkers what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. There will be lots of information on the website to help you explain the benefits of gratitude, but of course you already feel it in your bones. Tell the people you’re grateful for how they inspire you and that you will be carrying a sign with their picture on it.
