Episode Info

Episode Info:

John Israel is the author and founder of The Mr. Thank You Project: A Journey to Elevate the Level of Gratitude on the Planet … One Card at a Time. Over the course of one year, John wrote five handwritten Thank You cards a day, every day, for 365 straight days.

In a world that many believe is less grateful and appreciative than ever before, John’s work has truly struck a chord with people, and he’s shared his experiences on ABC News, FOX News, iHeartRadio, Popsugar, and even in a TEDx Talk.

John’s work has had a transformative impact not just on how I live my life, but on the people around me as well. Today, John joins the podcast to share stories and lessons from the Mr. Thank You Project. We get into why John decided to take on this time and labor-intensive project, what makes a handwritten Thank You card a much more powerful expression of gratitude than sharing or commenting on social media, and how you can find your own “why” to inspire others to make the world a better place together.
