Sometimes families can get caught up with all the hoopla surrounding the holiday and lose sight of the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Daily Candy reminds us of a way to stay on track in their video. In this article they expounded on their project.
"Make a care package for the less fortunate
By Lauren Lumsden
It’s easy for littles to lose track of what’s important when Monster High and Ugglys dolls are in their sights.
Restore their sense of gratitude this holiday by assembling a care package for those less fortunate. In today’s video, we show you what to include (we called a bunch of homeless shelters to find out what they needed most), how to put it together, and where to take it in major U.S. cities.
Of course, we also urge you to remember those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Right now, monetary donations to American Red Cross, Oxfam, and ShelterBox are still the best way to help.
By teaching your kids the value of giving now, you ensure they keep doing it as they grow. And that’s something to behold."
I hold heartedly agreed with them. Also I think this might be a fun way to add a new tradition to your holiday celebrations, ask each guest to bring an item and create a basket for a good cause. The hosting family can pick the theme.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
