Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday. The lavish meal has come to symbolize abundant consumption: the result – and reward – of American hard work and production.
And, while this Thursday our country will collectively celebrate a great feeling of contentment, there are millions of people who go hungry every day. Another great feeling we can celebrate is the knowledge that we as individuals can make a difference and that ending hunger is a goal that is literally at our fingertips.
Go to www.freerice.com. Answer some relatively simple questions. For each correct answer, FreeRice donates 20 grains of rice through the United Nations World Food Program. Twenty grains of rice may seem a small amount compared to your planned Thanksgiving feast, but it’s important to remember that while you’re playing the game so are thousands of other people at the same time. It’s everyone together that makes the difference.
FreeRice has generated enough rice to feed more than two million people in the past year. And this simple act can offer you and your family and friends the chance to both celebrate the holiday and share generously with others.
The members of the Brand Keys family hope that the beauty and blessings of Thanksgiving bring warmth to your home, peace to your hearts, and a real sense of Thanksgiving contentment.
