CommUNITY Gratitude Trees 🎄
2020 has been a rough year! In a year filled with political arguments, health concerns and community unrest, we are all feeling worn down by the negativity. We wanted an easy way for everyone to end 2020 on a note of positivity. We can all definitely use it. Provo School District, Provo Kindness, and Provo City are hoping a little community gratitude will help.
CommUNITY Gratitude Trees encourages all to celebrate the season by honoring their personal hero, whether that is a parent, a sibling, a teacher, a coworker, a frontline worker or even stranger who gave an unexpected gift of kindness. Who made 2020 more bearable? Let’s give them a shout-out.
Citizens can participate either in-person or online. Just download your printable here and then follow these steps:
Color the ornaments
Write a message to your hero on the back
Personally hang your ornament on one of three CommUNITY Gratitude Trees located at Provo City Hall in 311 Customer Service, Provo Police, or at Peaks Ice Arena
Those not wanting to hang their ornament, can post on their social media or ours with the hope being that we can brighten up online with a colorful wave of gratitude
Continually building on the culture of kindness in Provo is exactly why the Provo Kindness Initiative was established in September. This activity does exactly that as adults and youth alike remember the kindness they've received this past year and make a small effort to honor the person(s) who made their world a little better.
As we focus on the good, we will create more kindness and goodness in the process. We are looking forward to more fun family and community activities during our first annual Provo Kindness Week on February 15-19!
