The United States sets aside a day for giving thanks annually, and this Thursday families from all across the nation will be sitting around the dinner table to a turkey dinner in the spirit of giving thanks. Before you sit around the dinner table with family and friends this year, take the time to consider those who do not have the privilege of a home-cooked meal. You have the ability to provide them with a reason to be grateful. A simple gesture may brighten someone’s day. Perhaps you are unable to provide them a turkey dinner around the dinner table, but here is a recipe you can give:

Ingredients:

  • Prepare/purchase a meal for a homeless person (1 cup)
  • Volunteer at a local church (1 teaspoon)
  • Clean out your closet and donate unused items (4 oz)
  • Write a thank you letter (1 gallon)
  • Make blankets for the homeless (1 tablespoon)
  • Donate food to local food banks (the more lbs the better)
  • Dash of giving
  • Pinch of thanks

*Add the ingredients to your own preference. The recipe above may not be entirely edible but is guaranteed to feed your soul.

For more ingredients please visit the Richter Center. Or read this post by Ambassador Shola with more ideas on giving back during the holidays. The opportunities for giving are endless!

What are you thankful for?  How do you give back?  What is your recipe?  What other ingredients can we add to our recipe?
