The Gratitude Campaign
Veterans Day is fast approaching, it's coming up this Wednesday. How often do you see a member of our military out and about - and you want to thank them for their service - but you just don't know how to approach them? It's happened to me before, it's probably happened to you too. You don't want to bother them or interrupt them, but you want to let them know how grateful you are.
I had the chance to meet a Boise transplant who came up with a brilliant idea. Scott Truitt found a special sign, that means "Thank You" - and you can use it anytime of the year to thank our troops. His push to get the word out is now called "The Gratitude Campaign".
He produced a video explaining the campaign, and it's been played at professional sports stadiums and arenas around the nation. It's a sensation on YouTube too. Scott estimates about 30 million people have seen the video, but he wants to get the word out to everyone he can.
You can check out the video in full right now on his website:
After you watch it, you may just start making the "Gratitude Campaign" a part of your life. Not just on Veterans Day, but all year!
