Thanksgiving, giving thanks, charity

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. The holiday is meant to provide a time to celebrate love and appreciation for friends and family. We give thanks for the blessings bestowed on our life. What better way to show gratitude for those we love than to donate a gift in their name?

Facebook has created a new page that allows you to give a donation to a non-profit organization on behalf of a friend or family member. There are 11 different organizations available to choose from: American Red Cross, Blue Star Families, Boys & Girls Clubs of America,, Girls Inc., Kiva, LIVESTRONG, Oxfam America, RAINN, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and Each time you buy a charitable Facebook Gift, you have the option of choosing the non-profit organization or letting your friend/family member choose. For further information visit the Facebook Newsroom.

Have a happy, healthy, and humble Thanksgiving.
