It is not enough to express "gratitude" only with words.
The "Thank You Sculpture" serves here as a symbol that honors the work of many people and organizations. Often we do not even know what constitutes "gratitude" and how we can pass it on. However, it shapes all of our lives. "Gratitude" not only strengthens our backs, it brings us closer together, helps through difficult times or is perceived as a benefit:
The award of the “Thankyou-Sculpture” began in 2017 and has so far reached 95 countries. The project will only end when all countries in the world have received the "Thankyou-Sculpture"!
The recipients of the sculpture committed themselves in the most diverse ways to society as a whole. The degree of recognition is not relevant. The only thing that matters is the commitment to the community and its appreciation and recognition, which are highlighted by the awarding of the "Thank You Sculpture". The actors are seen here as role models, sources of strength and inspiration, who act for a worldwide and peaceful coexistence.
I was lucky enough to receive support from people during many setbacks in my life, even if I did not know them directly. Among other things, this has motivated me to send the Thank You Sculpture worldwide and hopefully one day to every country on our planet. Hereby I would like to express that many people are currently in emergency situations and are dependent on the support of others. In this way, the Thank You Sculpture is symbolic of the solidarity that people who are dependent on support need, and it is intended to raise the profile of this sculpture on the world's political agenda.
