Gobble gobble, crunch crunch

Hoorah for Thanksgiving! We are really thankful this year for Stacia and Brian because they bought us some delicious cookies. See they are specially made just for doggies. We had so much fun eating them.

We also know that Thanksgiving isn't just about cookies. We know it's a time to appreciate all the people who love us and that we love -- even people we don't love, like the mailman. It's also a nice time to think about helping others that might have less than you. It is estimated that 38 million people in our country (including about 14 million children) live in poverty and often don't have enough money to eat healthy meals. If you have some extra time this week or even a few extra dollars you can help a person or a family get a hot meal on Thursday. Usually local schools, churches, and grocery stores offer ways that you can donate time, money and canned goods. You can also visit the Help the Homeless website to find city-specific projects that you might want to get involved in. We know that less fortunate people need help all of the time -- not just at holidays -- but it's a good time to start.
