The leaves are changing, the cold is rolling in and the holidays are right around the corner. During the holiday season I look forward to spending time with family, eating a lot of food, drinking a lot of wine and being thankful for all my many endeavors. With the many projects and jobs I have to juggle I was thinking, what about adding ONE MORE. The other day I spent much of my day trying to find a local food bank or soup kitchen in order to give a little back this holiday season. I ended up researching for 3 hours to find that volunteering in NY is a lot harder to get into than I thought it would be.
I remember a time in college where I would go and help out at a food bank on Wednesday mornings, handing out food to people in need and it was a life changing experience. It was as simple as: find out where and when you need to be there, and show up and volunteer. In my search I ended up talking to a friend about finding a way to give back and she told me about A Million Thanks Organization. A Million Thanks makes it easy to support from wherever you may be.
A Million Thanks is a year-round campaign to show our appreciation for our U.S. Military Men and Women, past and present, for their sacrifices, dedication, and service to our country through our letters, emails, cards, and prayers.
