Project Thank You

"There are many people in our community who have given back in amazing ways, but their stories often go unheard."

In every community, there are people who give selflessly of their time, energy, and resources to make the world a better place. In the maker community in North Texas, these are the makers, the doers, the ones who roll up their sleeves and get things done. But too often, their stories go unheard. The media focuses on negative news, and we rarely take the time to celebrate the good that people do. As a result, these unsung heroes often go unrecognized. It's time to change that. Let's take a moment to celebrate the makers in our midst. Our goal is to share their stories, amplify their voices, and let us all be inspired by their example. We all have the power to make a difference in the world; let's use it for good.

"It's hard to know who to thank or even where to start when it comes to giving back to our community."

Post card that reads: James, I appreciate you devoting so much time and energy to DMS. You have my respect for accepting an often stressful and thankless appointment that others dare not. I still like your best you. Thank you for your service. —Mark Havens, Founder, Dallas Makerspace [James Henningson / Dallas Makerspace / 1825 Monetary Ln #104 / Carrollton, Tx 75006]Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

There are so many people in our maker community who give their time and energy to make it a better place for all of us. It can be hard to know who to thank or even where to start when it comes to giving back to our community. But that's okay! Just taking a moment to express our gratitude is a great way to start. The next time you see a maker in service to our community, let them know how much you appreciate their efforts. It might just make their day and help them feel motivated to keep up the good work. Thank you, makers, teachers, and librarians; thank you for everything you do for us! We are truly grateful.

"That's why we created Project Thank You. This regional effort is designed to recognize prominent and noteworthy Makers and Makerspace leaders in North Texas that have made significant efforts to give back to their community."

When it comes to makerspaces, we often think of them as places where people can go to work on projects or learn new skills. However, makerspaces can also be powerful engines of community development. That's why we created Project Thank You. This regional effort is designed to recognize prominent and noteworthy Makers and Makerspace leaders in North Texas that have made significant efforts to give back to their community. By shining a spotlight on these individuals, we hope to inspire others to get involved in their community and make a difference.
