Karen2014I am so grateful that you’ve visited the World Gratitude Day Pittsburgh site!!

I’m Karen Litzinger, owner of Litzinger Career Consulting.  I hosted the first World Gratitude Day Pittsburgh event in 2012 in celebration of my 10th year in business.

From the positive feedback I have been hosting this as an annual event. It is now being co-sponsored by First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh. The event is reflective and meditative in nature, but not religious.

We all have so much to be grateful for on a daily basis, and this event can be a nice reminder.
