Want to be healthier and happier? It starts with gratitude, and a lot of it. In fact giving, and giving often, makes it easier to connect and deepen relationships with everyone around you. Devoted to giving at every chance we get, it’s no secret that Thanksgiving is our favourite holiday. And we’d like to kick off the holidays with a “thank you” to you.
Traditions are great, but sometimes it’s nice to shake things up and put a different twist on Thanksgiving. Instead of turkey, stuffing and all the typical trimmings, why not make a meal that combines everyone’s favourites? From a potluck and stress-free catered event to take out, or the full meal deal, the only ingredient you really need is an open mind, and yes, gratitude too.

Food for Thought
Saying ‘grace’. Do you? Don’t you? Here are great ideas for non-denominational ways of saying ‘grace’ or thank you before you eat a meal. And when it comes to recognizing all the people and resources it takes to bring a meal to the table, we have a great way to say “thanks”. Send a gratitude e-card to a farmer, grocery store, cook or the person who fed you a beautiful holiday meal.
Client and staff appreciation events are not only fun – they’re good for business too. Check out our latest blog to see how gratitude can transform your workplace.
