Please join us in our solidarity effort, alongside high profile influencers and leaders from around the world with whom we collaborate, to show appreciation for and gratitude towards the inspiring heroes who have dedicated themselves to keeping us all safe, by using the form below to submit your thank you messages/positive stories and/or photo/video/audio and post them with the hashtag #SPIRITEDTHANKS so we can ensure your message is sent to different hospitals, organisations, staff etc. and is shared on the wall of appreciation below as a lasting tribute or digital monument.
Whether they are for particular individuals or the system as a whole, your messages, which act as emotions as a gift, will help lift their spirits, show them how many people are thinking of and cheering for them and can spur them on to keep going. With your gestures, you can help make and brighten up people’s days and contribute positively to their wellbeing and mental health. Decades of scientific research have shown that gratitude can build resilience, strengthen resolve and improve performance so let them feel and know our love and appreciation and provide shining points of light, hope and healing in a period of darkness.
Even a small contribution that takes you just a few seconds can make a huge difference and go a long way in boosting morale, re-energising people and helping them remember all the people they are protecting and just how much their important work matters.
Nothing will ever be enough to repay them the debt we owe but we hope this token of gratitude will help show them how appreciative we all are and that we are thinking of them on top of more transient gestures like daily clapping. They share the same fears, uncertainties and anxieties as all of us and have their own loved ones to consider and care for and their own underlying health conditions to protect. They come from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds across the world but what unites them is their willingness to tirelessly help others in times of great danger, which demands immense courage and kindness. Today more than ever, we must cherish these heroes who heedless of personal risks make sacrifices for the greater good and battle adversity each day to help us all when we are at our most vulnerable. They deserve the utmost appreciation and gratitude and we salute them for their service.
