Express Gratitude this Season Through the Softness Worth Sharing Initiative


KleenexOne of the reasons I love Thanksgiving is because it is an annual reminder to count your blessings and be thankful for the life you live and the special people that are a part of it.  Simple gratitude can make the difference between a life filled with joy and one filled with sorrow, for all too often, we are guilty of forgetting just how good we have it.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John F. Kennedy

A tradition my family began last Thanksgiving is one where we each make a turkey having five large feathers.  On these feathers, we take the time to write what we are most thankful for and then decorate the turkey however we'd like.  During dinner, each person then reads aloud what they put on their five feathers and we all express gratitude to one another for the special things in our lives.

Attitude of GratitudeI make sure to write the year on each turkey and then put them in a scrapbook filled with other pictures and notes about our Thanksgiving holiday.  I know that this will be a great family keepsake and one that can help us count our blessings throughout the year when we need to adjust our "attitude of gratitude".

Besides my family, one of the things I am most grateful for is my health.  I've never had any sort of major health problems and based on my family tree, I have longevity on my side.  Of course, as cold and flu season rapidly approaches, I realize that everyone's health is in jeopardy.

Express Your Gratitude and Join the Kleenex Softness Worth Sharing Initiative

Kleenex Tissues Care PackThat's why I'm glad that it's so easy to make others in need feel better while expressing my own gratitude with the Kleenex Softness Worth Sharing Initiative.  It's a fun and convenient way to show someone that you're thinking of them or to make a person feel a little better if they happen to be under the weather.

To participate, just visit your local retailer, purchase a Kleenex tissues bundle pack and redeem the code on the box. Then simply visit and follow the directions to send a Care Pack to someone who needs a little extra care (while supplies last).  Wonder what's included in the Kleenex Care Pack?

  • lip balm
  • 1 oz. hand sanitizer
  • coupon booklet
  • Kleenex Share Pack
  • Kleenex Slim Pack
  • card redeemable to download four songs from up and coming Universal Music Artists

When you're stocking up on Kleenex tissues this season, be sure to remember the Softness Worth Sharing initiative and send a care pack to someone special to brighten their day...and yours!
