1 2 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y M A G A Z I N E • J U N E 2 0 1 9 I am the founder of Littlethanks (littlethanks.ca), a line of scrub- sized thank-you cards for nurses to let their fellow nurses know how much they appreciate and respect them. Nurses who receive a card love the recognition. And there's no denying the psychological benefits of just saying "thank you" freely and often. Littlethanks cards are sold on Etsy (osmag.net/Yn7XSf) in packs of 18 — 15 pre-written heartfelt and humorous messages, and 3 write- your-own notes — for $5, plus shipping from Canada. I've sold around 2,000 packs, and receive daily emails about their impact from nurses all over North America.
