Food for Thought (& a Shameless Plug)

Thanksgiving is a time to look around and be thankful for all that we have. It's also a time to look and see where the gaps are, and how we can help fill them.

My friend AK is involved in a fantastic organization called Epic Change. Last Thanksgiving, Epic Change launched a program called TweetsGiving, a 48-hour celebration of gratitude and giving that successfully raised over $10,000 to build a classroom in Arusha, Tanzania.

This year, proceeds of TweetsGiving will help raise funds to build a dormitory/orphanage, library, school cafeteria and additional classrooms. And those children who learn in the classroom built from the funds of last year's TweetsGiving--they'll be participating in full force using the new technology lab Epic Change helped them set up this Fall.

There are TweetsGiving celebrations happening all over the world, and hopefully in an area near you! Check out the locations here; if you already have Thanksgiving plans or can't find an event in your area, take a minute to donate to this wonderful cause.
