The Thank Tank has been created! General information, tank location, and (eventually) woven text are available at the Thank Tank’s Home. This post will be an updated area to discuss the game’s mechanics, answer questions, and encourage dialogue related to the game.
If you haven’t already, please watch the short instructional video below.
The Thank Tank is also looking for spaces in Los Angeles to reside for a week or two at a time. If you have an office, a lobby, or a space that will receive some foot traffic, drop us a line .
Likewise, if you’re not in Los Angeles and want to contribute to the Thank Tank, single-folded post-its can be mailed to:
842 Terrace 49, Los Angeles, CA 90042.
Is the Thank Tank a Game?
The short answer is yes. Think of it as the opposite of hitting a piñata. With a piñata, the goal is to be the first to break and empty the vessel to reap the hidden rewards. Instead, the goal of the Thank Tank is to help fill an empty vessel; the morsels of gratitude are a collective incentive. The thick ink of the Sharpie and the limited space of the post-it help build anonymity within the project. As the thanks proliferate, they will be posted and woven at neededtosaythanks.com.
This is still a bit of a work in progress. The Thank Tank needs a simple logo. Someone needs to design it. Maybe it is you. Other ideas, questions, and suggestions are appreciated.
