2. Get involved with local charities: Some cities have turkey donations at local food banks. Others have special events to feed the hungry during this time. Check your local listings for last minute ideas and events that you can participate in to help others around you. Also consider making a donation in honor of what you are thankful for or in memory of those who are no longer with you. Events like Run to Feed the Hungry are charitable organizations that sponsor a 5k on Thanksgiving morning in the Sacramento region of California. Check local listings for charitable events like this in your area. http://www.runtofeedthehungry.com/

3. Share, Share, Share: If you are looking for a fun way to share what you are thankful for with family or friends around the table consider having everyone write down what they are thankful for at the beginning of the meal and putting it in a bowl or hat. After dinner or during dessert pass the bowl around and everyone takes a message. Go around the table and have everyone read the note they received. Take turns after all the messages have been read to guess who's message was who's.
Warmest wishes during this time of thankfulness.
