In our COVID ravaged world, where people put their lives on the line to save yours, “Thank you” hardly seem enough. Yet hugs are off limits, thus, the Thankerchief™ was born — a tactile way to touch the recipient.

A flutter of the kerchief to:

  • Selby Harrison, who gifted doctors, nurses, and hospital staff in Dallas
  • Art Emrich, who spread thanks to hospital workers in Sarasota, Florida, and had a ball doing so
  • Dana Walsh, who thanked law enforcement in Lincoln, Nebraska — one is displayed on their precinct bulletin board
  • The wife of a Novato, California firefighter who delivered Thankerchiefs folded as neckerchiefs soaking in tubs of ice water to firefighters in Mendocino County
  • Joanie C., who strung Thankerchiefs™ in a fanciful garland outside a senior care facility. Workers came outside one-by-one to fetch a Thank You off the line.
  • Ada Alden from Plymouth, Minnesota gifted one to a teacher of deaf children, who was delighted to discover the inclusion of Thank You in sign language in the “heart” of the hankie. (Kudos to Christopher Dydyk for that wonderful idea.)

You’ll find guide dogs wearing Thankerchiefs™ in Los Angeles and San Diego; workers in radiology at CPMC, and nurses at Davies Medical Center in San Francisco; food bank volunteers, UPS and FedEx drivers too numerous to mention; and so many more!

We can’t do this alone, but we hope if “each one will reach one” we can honor the quiet heroes who toil tirelessly on our behalf.
