“No Duty Is More Urgent Than Giving Thanks”
– James Allen

Research shows gratitude is more than just a pleasing feeling of appreciation. Being grateful can lead to better health, happiness, and wisdom in ourselves along with in our communities. Gratitude helps people understand that their success is possible because of people who supported them along the way. At Giving Back Magazine, we are grateful for our clients, partners and readers who constantly cultivate gratitude as well as focus on and value the goodness in our world. We are thankful to have a not-for-profit community that sees the bigger picture, encourages prosocial behavior and helps us navigate adversity with greater resilience.
