Happy Thanksgiving Giveaway (#303)

Happy Thanksgiving! The day designed for gratitude – it’s like gratitude’s national holiday.

Whether your day is steeped in tradition or you are doing something totally unrelated…we can find reasons to be grateful for today. Every year I try to recognize my own privilege when it comes to Thanksgiving. I’m grateful for food, family, and friends but that might not be true for everyone. I’m fortunate to return to a warm house, surrounded by people who love me. Be sure to support your local food bank or homeless shelter anyway you can.

Here is where we get to work together. I will be selecting 5 people at random who like this post and comment their blog link to win my giveaway prize.

Winners will receive:

– a $20 Amazon Gift Card

– a $20 donation to the charity of your choice

– and my gratitude 🙂

Share this post! Tell your friends, tell your pets. The contest runs until December 1st, so act fast! There is only so much we can do as individuals. What I’m truly grateful for is when we find ways to come together. Happy Thanksgiving, Internet.
