Record Your Gratitude Stories 2020

Embrace the past, create your new stories. Downtown Santa Clara

What are you Grateful for? 

This year, Thanksgiving will be different. Many of us will not be able to gather with all of our loved ones in person. Many elders will feel isolated and alone, and need to find ways to connect while remaining socially distanced.

Let's begin by sharing our gratitude stories.  

These are short stories of us and our families and what we grateful for and giving thanks for each us.  

Please join me and thousands of people telling stories we are grateful for.  I have my StoryCorps account and I will support you in recording, uploading and sharing your story  with thousands of others. 

You may record your own story or purchase a recording for a love one.  All you have to do is talk in the microphone.
