In two weeks, we will all be preparing for a Thanksgiving feast! It is one of my favorite holidays and although my family is not particularly decorative, I’m considering doing something special this year. I browsed Paper Source’s Thanksgiving decorations because they always provide creativity and inspiration. The “I am Thankful For” note cards are a sweet idea and encourage everyone to share a bit of Thanks. You could also pass the sealed envelopes around so that everyone reads someone else’s thoughts. If you are feeling very creative, here is a project that will make each guest feel very special! With 35 family members, I’m not sure this is an option for me!
Thanksgiving is a time to give to organizations that help families in need. The Nashville Rescue Mission is collecting 1,000 turkeys to distribute to families. The Nashville-area Salvation Army is holding their annual Thanksgiving Day feast and need people to donate dinners and volunteer their time. If you want a bit of exercise before the big meal, participate in the 16th Annual Boulevard Bolt, a Thanksgiving Day five-mile run/walk that raises money for the homeless in Nashville. As well, the Second Harvest Food Bank is always accepting food and donations and will help your company, community group, or school organize a food drive.
The Nashville Public Library recently implemented a Food for Fines program to help those struggling to feed their families this holiday season. Through November 24, each canned or packaged food item is worth $1, so pay your fines with food! Of course, if you don’t have fines, you are welcome to donate food too.
On a final note, Adrian Hitt Photography is thankful for all of our readers and clients and hopes everyone has a peaceful holiday!
