In November, Thanksgiving is the holiday where thankfulness is questioned. "What are you thankful for?" is the question people of all ages are dying to hear the answer to. I am thankful for my family, my friends, my boyfriend, and so many other things in my life because I am blessed. Every day I wake up and I know I will be fed. I know I will be fortunate enough to attend college. I know I will eventually have a successful career. I know how blessed I am and I am thankful for it every day, not just on Thanksgiving. But, Thanksgiving is truly just the tip of the iceberg, the season of helping has arrived.
As December nears, parents that are less fortunate worry about how they are going to afford gifts for their children on top of how they are going to be able to pay all of their bills, and food, and every day needs. A lot of families all over the United States are poor or need help and this is more than ever, the time to help.
Getting involved is so easy. Whether you apply to help at the Food Bank in your local town, buy gifts for children, donate canned goods, or any other way to help, it doesn't matter. What does matter, however, is that you are helping.
