In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

A Butterfly Project GIVEAWAY!

We are hosting a giveaway for The Butterfly Project.  The Butterfly Project is a movement to get people writing letters of gratitude.  As the creator of the project I have issued a challenge to readers to write 12 letters of gratitude to people in 2012.  The giveaway will get you ready to write 12 notes of your own.  You will receive 12 note cards with envelops, a Butterfly Project pen, and a 12 month magnetic calendar as a reminder to keep you motivated.  Though you may not be a best selling author, we can all inspire someone.  The goal of The Butterfly Project is to Change lives...ONE letter at a time!


One lucky Butterfly Project Blog reader will win 12 cards with envelops, a magnetic calendar, 
and a Butterfly Project Pen to write your 12 letters of gratitude.

  1. What a fun giveaway. Thanks for a chance. I think my favorite post is Gratitude. It really made me think about our calling as human beings to be there for each other, to lift each other up and brighten someones day.
    I just discovered project butterfly, but love the idea and I am going to make a goal to let others know how grateful I am for them.

In my letter I reminded him of what a wonderful father and example he is to me. I want him to remember that.
