Penny's Passion: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Turkey Day!

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  Today I'm thinking about how very thankful I am to all of you who pop in my little corning of the internet.  Writing this blog and reading your comments brings me much joy and I am truly thankful for you.

Today I'm thinking out loud about an opportunity I had earlier in the week to volunteer for Foodbank and hand out 1,000 Thanksgiving dinners to families in need.  I've been so fortunate in my life and need to remember that others struggle to meet the basic necessity of feeding their families.  

As we gather with family and friends this holiday to give thanks, let's remember those less fortunate and make a small gesture to assist those who need help.  I received the below email from Foodbank and would like to share it with you ~

In a few days, I will gather with friends and family to sit around a table, give thanks, and enjoy a wonderful meal. Isn’t that what Thanksgiving’s all about?

Meals are often the heart of holiday memories. But for the thousands of families facing hunger in Missouri and Illinois, the tables might be empty.

Please consider donating to the St. Louis Area Foodbank to help fill the tables for our neighbors in need. Just a $25 donation will provide 100 Thanksgiving meals to local families. [] If you have already made your gift this Thanksgiving season, I am grateful for your kind and generous support.
No matter how you choose to make a difference, know you are helping give what matters this holiday season: a meal on every table.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Feel free to link up and share what's on your mind today.  I love hearing from you!
