5 Ways To Give This Thanksgiving

Happy Champagne Friday everyone! With holidays creeping up on us, I've already been knee deep in festive planning. Our Friendsgiving (Thanksgiving with your closest friends) is next weekend, I'm organizing a holiday photo shoot to benefit the rescue I manage for the weekend after that, and Thanksgiving is just days after that. This is just November, don't even get me started on December. Needless to say, it's easy to let the days get away from you during the busy holiday season. It's important to think about how you can give back this holiday season, don't let charity get pushed out of your mind to make room for party planning and gift shopping. In an effort to help everyone put "giving" on the top of their to-do list, this week's Fab Five Friday will feature five ways to give, this Thanksgiving.

If the holiday season really is all about giving, those who are really in need should be on the receiving end. So, while your buying your turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, pick up an extra one and give it to someone who may not be able to afford a fancy dinner or maybe someone you know who has just fallen on hard times. Find out if the company you work for does a food drive. If they do, help spread the word; if they don't, get permission to organize one. Sign up for the Turkey Trot or a similar marathon-style event where the proceeds are donated to help feed the hunger or shelter the homeless. Volunteer at your local soup kitchen after or before you've finished your delicious gourmet meal in your warm and cozy home. Send a care package overseas to soldiers who will be spending the holidays far from home through organizations like Operation Gratitude or Give 2 The Troops. There are plenty of ways to give a little more to help others. 

The rewards of helping others speak for themselves. Always remember that not everyone may be as lucky as you are. I know that I much rather be doing things like this on Thanksgiving instead of signing up for the "Thanksgiving Trample" as I like to call it, aka Black Friday. Think of those in need this holiday season, don't be a selfish bitch (winky face).
