Last year Sadaqa : Charity Day held the event ‘You are Not Alone’ where we discussed domestic abuse and depression.  However this year we would like to take a different approach in the promotion of happiness and self being.  By seeing life as it is but focusing on the good bits can make you happier and the people around you because happiness is contagious! So we are asking you to host one lunch time at work, school or home with the Canvas of Thanks, where everyone writes, paints draws what they are thankful for.  Positive emotions – like joy, gratitude, contentment, inspiration, and pride – are not just great at the time, recent research shows that regularly experiencing them creates an ‘upward spiral’, helping to build our resources. Which you never know it might help you get that promotion at work, increase your grades at school or make for a peaceful home life.

Get in touch at to get hold of a canvas.
