Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community

Colors of Gratitude

Send thanks to healthcare professionals,
first responders, and front line workers during the pandemic
Kol Ami’s Care and Concern team has partnered with acclaimed illustrator and inspirational speaker Joanne Fink to provide gratitude cards that can be printed, colored, and distributed.

Color and send your own cards via email to first responders and hospital staff, including those on this recommended distribution list. Bring cards with you when running errands to bring a smile to food chain workers, pharmacists, retail employees, and all the people who are putting themselves at risk to keep us safe. Or, hang one on your door or mailbox to thank workers delivering packages or mail to your home.

Stay tuned!  Kol Ami will host a Spring 2022 Colors of Gratitude program.  Our Spring 2021 program was held in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Good Deeds Week and the Interfaith Council’s Day of Unity with proceeds benefitting Capital Area Food Bank.


Joanne has created a toolkit to help you in your gratitude journey. Download Joanne’s Colors of Gratitude Blank Cards, use her Gratitude Worksheet to help you along, add a special flair with her artful thank you phrases, and track your progress on her art of appreciation list tracker. For additional tips visit her coloring patterns worksheet and her website Joanne Fink Judaica.
