November is a month of giving thanks. We invite you to share your appreciation for someone special – a mentor, a teacher, a colleague, a friend — who has helped you learn and grow.
In this month of gratitude, Bookshare would like to help our community give thanks to someone who has helped them on their learning journey. In this time of uncertainty due to the pandemic and other events, we are under a lot of stress. Yet, teachers, parents, friends, and family members everywhere are going the extra mile to support one another. During this month of gratitude, let us show our appreciation.
Who are you thankful for?
Maybe a teacher who got you ebooks and tools that made reading easier. A librarian who helped you find your new favorite book. A parent who took time off work to help with your remote learning journey. A colleague who provided a helping hand or show of support when you need it most. A neighbor who let you use her wifi.
Share your thanks today by filling out the #WeAreGrateful form. You will receive a personalized, accessible thank you card in PDF format straight to your inbox. You may then send the thank you card to your recipient’s email, print it out to send through the mail, or share your message on social media and tag #WeAreGrateful.
Here is an example of the card:
