Acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg’s TEDx talk on gratitude was a viral sensation, reaching tens of millions of viewers who shared and responded with their own stories of increased gratitude. The results were happier, healthier and more productive lives.
Louie’s film team has now taken the next step in this journey and created Gratitude Revealed which is an unprecedented journey into the science, mystery and pursuit of the building blocks of gratitude. Increasing gratitude is a proven pathway back from the disconnection we feel in our lives; disconnection from ourselves, our planet, and each other. In a series of 15 film shorts, they explore what gratitude is, why it’s important and what we can all do to live more gracious lives.

On September 13, 2017, join hundreds of thousands of people around the globe for the fourth annual Character Day — a free day and global initiative where school districts, organizations, families, and congregations of all sizes screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into free printed discussion materials catered to different ages, and join an online global conversation around the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)–all rooted in evidence-based research. Character Day is one day. The resources are available year-round.
