Quick start guide

Welcome

You found us! We welcome you warmly to Gratitude Tree. Gratitude Tree is a digital ‘forest of thanks’ that was developed to allow people to share their appreciation and positivity during, and following, the Covid-19 global pandemic.

You can search or explore the messages of thanks in the forest.
Anything goes - as long as it is a thank you!
We hope you enjoy your walk through the forest of thanks.
Add your message of appreciation to an existing gratitude tree.
Share your message via Twitter or Facebook
Plant a new tree for a workplace, school, community group, or hospital.
The forest is still under development. Feel free to explore and let us know of any problems

For students, tutors and the module team to reflect and say 'thank you' for any help they have received in working with the home experiment kits which replaced residential schools cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. For every tree filled up the T176/T276 module team will plant a real tree. If this tree is full look in the forest for the next one ( they will be numbered sequentially)
