The Gratitude Campaign

Have you ever seen one of our military walking past you and wanted to convey to them your thanks, but weren't sure how or it felt awkward?
Recently, a gentleman from Seattle created a gesture which could be used and has started a massive movement to get the word out.
Please everybody take just a moment to watch (30 sec.) The Gratitude Campaign: ...and then forward it to your friends!

Just don't attempt to modify it in any fashion. For instance, holding the elbow with your free hand is apparently some kind of Italian insult.

Actually making a chopping motion in the crook of your elbow and raising your hand is the italian insult..

You must practice the gratitude jesture P..I think it's nice..

HUGS!!

I learnt this whilst doing sign-language, it is so easy and means so much in any language. Thanks for sharing Leelee.

I have never felt this way. I support the war but not the troops. Cheers Leelee!!

I thought it was worth passing along Queenie. Although, I just go on up to the guys and gals and thank them outright...every time.

Matt- I just know you are Joshin' me...I just know it..

:-)

HUGS!!

Hey in NY we do this, but we grab our crotch at the same time. Don't think it would go over well. Besides, I'm with bond. I just say what I have to say and am never shy about letting people what I think.

NYD said...

Oops- Letting people *know* what I think.

leelee said...

OK OK...I see you are with the program and that a good thing. I just thought I would share another way of saying thanks!

Looks like I need another post..

xoxo

HUGS!!
