Make a Difference – Shower Your World with Love, Gratitude, and Appreciation

“What the World Needs Now….is Love… Sweet Love.” I remember listening & ‘feeling’ the words to this beautiful song sung by Dionne Warwick back in high school. What I didn’t know then, but know now, according to Wikipedia, is that the music was composed by Burt Bacharach. (one of my fav composers)

Dionne originally turned down Burt’s song, “What the World Needs Now.” The first year, Hal David (lyrics) & Burt Bacharach’s song reached the top of the Music Chart.  (see below) Years later, their song, hit the top of the Music Chart again, with Dionne Warwick singing it.

{What the World Needs Now Is Love” is a 1965 popular song with lyrics by Hal David and music composed by Burt Bacharach. First recorded and made popular by Jackie DeShannon, it was released on April 15, 1965, on the Imperial label after a release on sister label Liberty records the previous month was canceled. The song reached number 7 on the US charts in May of that year.}

The words in the song written by Hal David could not be More True Today than they were 30 years ago. The answer to every problem in our cultural, in our country, in our world is, we need, MORE LOVE…Love, SWEET, Love!  is an easy place to go to, to act on your promptings.’s 30-Day Gratitude Campaign sent out over 1 million cards of love & gratitude in 30 days last summer.  One month later, (July) another 1 million cards of gratitude were sent out. How is it possible in a downside economy for a company to have a record breaking year? Love is powerful! It’s that simple!!

Why don’t you send a card of love, gratitude or appreciation today and see what comes back to you? Just like a smile, love almost always bounces back to you!

*Think about sending a card with a short note to someone you don’t know, but admire?

*Send a Card of gratitude to your child’s teacher.

Teachers spend more time with most of our child than we do?

Do you agree then, that TEACHERS deserve more appreciation and gratitude than they receive? has not only cards, we have gift cards, gourmet foods and confections. has books…most teachers love books. Send your child’s teacher a book which they will share with their students. Books are gifts that keep giving. Only by reading and changing our hearts & minds, will we be able to change the course of this country. Why not be the first one in your family, in your neighborhood to send a card to shower someone with Love, Gratitude and Appreciation.

Remember…….Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12.

*Who deserves a card of Love and Gratitude more than our Mothers or our Grandmothers?  Send a card to your Step-Mother, your Special Aunt, Your Not-Mother,  or Your best friend.

” What the world needs now is love, sweet love …It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

No, not just for some but for everyone

Lord, we don’t need another mountain

There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb

There are oceans and rivers enough to cross

Enough to last until the end of time

What the world needs now is love, sweet love

It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.”


Peace & Hugs…Send a Card of Gratitude.
